We came to your pub one lunch time, the room at the back that we where put into was not very nice at all lots of dead flys in the roof area which put us off our food, and the room look rather dirty we will not be coming back.

A nice pub, good atmosphere and service with a lovely outdoor area. Sunday lunch was good, restaurant area was ok but the tables and seating were not great. Food was good value, and staff were friendly.

Met my son at the pub and both chose the rib eye steak which was poorest specimen of rib eye that either of us had ever seen or tasted, furthermore it was not cooked as requested, medium rare. The chips tasted as though they were frozen. Liked the pub and the beer but the food let it down.

If you want a great pint, good food, great atmosphere, friendly service and made to feel welcome then visit this pub. They just have things how you'd like to find them.
