The place is basically a building site, I think that they should have closed the pub for a few weeks and got the work done. I ordered a pint of London Pride then Doom Bar, neither were satisfactory. We then moved on to the restaurant, a £25 bottle of Cotes du Rhone was served cold. My meat pie was quite... More

Excellent Sunday Dinner, very decent price. First drink free on a Sunday with a meal was a bonus! Thanks Cam and the team

A thoroughly enjoyable Sunday lunch with excellent service & superb food. HIGHLY recommended! Although undergoing a bit of refurbishment we couldn't have been looked after better & will definitely be returning.

Stopped in for lunch mid week. All starters & puddings £2.50 and mains £5.00 We both had the 6oz steak. Perfectly cooked with lovely fresh veges. Pudding for me was house made fruit crumble and my husband had the jam roll poly. Both were great. We left very satisfied. Yes, the pub is undergoing refurbishment but this didn't affect our...

I hope they give the pub's restaurant a refurb; it needs it desperately. The bar area was small and well-stocked with young farmers. Sunday lunch was ok, the beef (sirloin cut) was pink and excellent, but let down by underwhelming veggies and 'are you sure you're not related to Aunt Bessie's' Yorkshire pud. £12.50 for the main course. I'd think... More

Food was very good, staff very friendly and helpful. Complimentary limoncello shot afterwards was a nice touch. Happy to eat there again.

I took my dad for lunch. We did not book and were told we could only have the bar menu. There were only about 4 choices. The meals were served on something a little larger than a teaplate. My dad had pie and chips. He could not cut the pastry. It looked like a ready made pie cut in half.... More

Hi, Really sorry for that experience, we only took over a few weeks ago and only secured a chef last week. Our temporary bar menu was simply so people could have something while we were searching for a new chef. If you would like to return we will give you a full refund for that day. We now offer full...

I called by whilst out on the bike and received a very friendly welcome, piping hot tea and a bacon roll, perfect for a winter ride fuel stop. Very well priced, nicely warmed up. Good luck to the both of you. I'll be sure to pop by again. Thanks

Visited just after lunch Saturday, fabulous old pub, recently under new management so a full food menu is by special arrangement until the new chef arrives. Wonderful welcome, lovely atmosphere, tasty bacon bap, great coffee and a great piece of fruit cake. A bit off the beaten track, but well worth a visit!

We decided at last minute to stop for lunch, a few people had recommended this pub so we decided to give it a try. We wasn't disappointed one of our party had the goulash and reckons it was one of the best they have had. I had the pork sausages and mash in mustard gravy this was delicious. Though the... More
