Went at lunchtime for a special offer on a chateubriand meal. It was delicious, the service was faultless and friendly staff! New management who deserve to do well! Nothing was to much bother. Shall definitely go again.

The steak was perfectly cooked and was good quality. All the food looked and tasted beautiful. Very quiet old pub with real fires. Service was very good too.

Sadly since the last time we visited we felt that the establishment was looking dreary and unkempt.We had walked our dogs and came in for a drink and a Hot chocolate only to be told they were too busy to make a hot chocolate!More
