Our first visit was fabulous. Service was quick and very polite. The food was delicious; I had sausage & mash while my husband had the homemade burger. Sausages were excellent quality and we both enjoyed our meal. Ordered dessert too, profiteroles, and was really impressed with the size. Certainly enough to share... though my husband didn't fancy tucking in so... More

Came here for a Sunday Easter Day lunch, ordered the lamb and pork roast both were lovely, only reason it's not full stars is because of the size of the veg portion was pretty small for 2 ppl, didn't have dessert but noticed another table and dessert was double sized 😳, wine was nice though and a very attractive pub..

Took a party of seven and one dog here for an evening meal. Dog was welcome in the restricted area and vegetarians were well catered for. Unfortunately not a single entrance was suitable for a disabled person. A mountain goat would feel at home here being able to negotiate the many steps.

Thank you for your review. I am however a little baffled by your comment as our main front road entrance is a disabled entrance with ramp, signs and wide access. This leads directly into the pub where we also have a disabled toilet. The three front bays in our car park are also designated disabled bays all clearly marked with... More

Love this pub, always a friendly welcome, good atmosphere & freshly cooked food, Specials board too. It does get busy especially Sundays so it is always worth booking ahead as i usually do. I have never waited more than 20-25 minutes for my food but during busy times I know it can take slightly longer, that is to be expected... More

Thank you for your review but since your visit in September (for which this review applies) this pub has been under new ownership. I am not sure why you chose to post a review 6 months after your visit but I am sure if you returned you will find many positive changes that we have implemented, including a great friendly... More

I have visited the restaurant a few times, always on a Saturday lunchtime. The service is good and the food is good. It always surprises me how quite the restaurant is. Service is not quick, but if you want fast food, go up the road to the Wimpy! Service has always been welcoming and the prices are fair. I will... More

We were really impressed by the value of the roast dinner which was delicious - we had beef and pork between us which had huge Yorkshire puddings. Only complaint was the lack of staff and the poor waitress was rushed off her feet. Otherwise nice setting and various deals on throughout the week. Would recommend and return.
