Popped in here for a quick drink. Had a look on the menu and saw they do cheese toasties! Ordered one and it was the best one I have ever tasted. Well done, not too much cheese and accompanied by a FRESH dressed side salad. Simple food, done well. Will be back for another soon! All I would say is... More

The food we all thought was overall very high quality, cooked and presented very well. We had sharing platters to start which were generous varied and... More

Went with friends who fancied a Sunday lunch. Warm welcome (had booked earlier in morning as table for 6). It is a set lunch on Sunday with choice of 3 roasts and other options. Staff consistently great including landlord. Roasts were good quality for price and superb Yorkshire pud. Apple crumble disappointing but more than compensated for by amazingly light... More

Thank you for your review. It's lovely to hear that you thought the quality of the roasts were good, and the Yorkshire pudding was superb - our chefs do work extremely hard, and endeavour to keep our customers happy. You're right, the bailey's cheesecake is to die for! Perhaps next time you might enjoy the apple pie, or one of... More

Family met up for a Sunday meal, roast beef all round, apart from 1 who had salmon. Really nice, beef was a little grisslely but tasty. Pudding gorgeous. Staff friendly and for once in a restaurant on a Sunday there was just about enough staff which is unusual I find!! This pub is always friendly to be fair. Recommended.

We cannot praise the Hit or Miss highly. Even though it was understandably busy, there was plenty of waiting staff and they did not seem harassed. The food was excellent and the value great, but 2 things made this exceptional. One was the gift of chocolate to the Mother in the group and the other retrieving personal cutlery that we... More

Dear Stephanie and team, just a quick thank you from me for making our lunch yesterday the success I had hoped for. Everybody was most impressed with the quality and quantity of the food and your charming and efficient way of dealing with us all. Please pass on my thanks to all involved. We’ll be back!

We have been to this pub quite a few times for dinner and we always enjoy it. The menu always has a lot of interesting things to make choosing difficult. When we went last weekend I had a goats cheese and beetroot 'cheesecake' as a starter and my partner had ducks liver. Both dishes were lovely. For mains we both... More
