Such a shame really as the food on other tables looked lovely (burgers) but ours was not nice at all. Just edible. I had salad with fillet of salmon (they placed the hot salmon on the literally ice cold salad thus the salmon was luke warm when i got it). the beef on the roast tasted processed, roast potatoes did...

We certainly weren't disappointed, our steak was served on a half moon cast iron sizzler plate with the fries on a china half moon plate ,both set in a wooden server plate, quite impressive! lovely steak, cooked as ordered,...

Visited this weekend for a quick meal. We were moved twice due to the manager, who was very rude, apparently needing the bigger tables. Both times the tables were filthy and we needed to ask for a member of staff to clean them. After a 45 min wait the food arrived and I wished it hadn't! The salad that came... More

Called in Saturday afternoon so pub reasonably quiet. Hubby enjoyed watching the football on the large screens. Food came out quickly but as I said, the pub was quiet. Very nicely cooked and tasty, all the better for having signed up to their website and had a 25% discount voucher. Landlady and manager very friendly and efficient. Am going back... More

Food was excellent and very good value for money, the staff was very helpful polite but a little under pressure at times as it did get busy but handled it very well and a very good pint, will definitely go again 😉
