"What can I say, we're not perfect" yeah mate, far from it. Offered a round of free drinks for waiting over an hour for undercooked chips and a mixed grill that subbed lamb steak for an extra sausage because they'd run out...(sure like that's the same). Poor service, poor food. Wouldn't recommend in the slightest

We choose this restaurant for our annual family gathering which is usually held at the Angel however the old white horse was recommended from a friend so we thought we'd give it a go.

For a large group of us, the food was all freshly cooked, served... More

We had our wedding reception here today. The food and service was outstanding. Everyone commented on the well presented, delicious food. Large servings and home made gravy to die for. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and lovely decor. We've eaten here on many occasions and haven't found anywhere locally that does such great food. Thanks to Geraint and the... More

17 of us, including 9 kids, fed the best pub roast I've had in a long time, including gravy from first principals! Cheerful service and nice beer - thanks all!
