There were seven of us entering the already busy pub on a Saturday evening and yet the welcome was immediate and friendly. The staff helpfully rustled us up an extra (single) table to give us more elbow room for when the food arrived. Both the main courses and the desserts took c. 35 mins to arrive but we took that...

Good atmosphere, pleasant staff, disappointing food. Sent steak back, got refund. Pudding sounded great but not special

We had already walked past this place and thought it looked nice. We weren't wrong. Lovely atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff and good food.

A work social - group of 6 with an awkward mixture of veggies and carnivores (and some particularly picky). All catered for with a smile. The food was excellent, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the house white was pretty good too ;) Highly recommended.

The duck with dauphanoise potatoes and a port and orange gravy was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. My daughter had the rib eye served with traditional chips and again you couldn't fault it, I would highly recommend this friendly Pub. We sat upstairs but people were also eating around the Bar area.

We visited this pub on a Friday afternoon, we loved the lay out - it's very cosy and spacious. There is additional seating upstairs and the food looked very good. There was a good selection of meals on the menu and it was quite busy which is always a good sign. Would recommend and we will definitely revisit for something... More

I went with my partner after a stressful day at work and had a good experience. We both had 2 courses. We both had steak, one medium and one medium rare. Both were cooked very well. I then had a treacle tart and my partner had a rum and raisin chocolate brownie. Again both were delicious. The only slight negative... More

The pub has recently been renovated & what a fabulous job the owners have done. Very welcoming! We had a late Sunday lunch here and it was very good, lots of well cooked meat and lovely fresh vegetables. A lovely atmosphere and very friendly and helpful staff.
