It was reasonably priced, but as it was not enjoyed all round, and we were not once asked if our meals were ok, I'm... More

Superb lunch - Ros had a perfectly cooked steak and I had the steak and ale pie, which was amazing and the brownies are to die for. Will definitely be back for more - and the bill was brilliant, too :)

In an area that has seen numerous pubs blossom and fade here is a place that feels so warm and homely. Smiling faces greet you in and welcome you and then you sit down to fantastic homemade food. A 3 course meal included a fabulous black pudding fritter with salad, a rich and fulfilling steak and ale pie and then... More

We haven't been to this local for years, however on recommendation from our friends we went last week for an evening meal. The atmosphere was lovely and our 9 year old daughter was also made to feel very welcome (not always the case in a pub on a Friday evening!), decor beautiful and the staff very friendly. Food was to... More
