This is my second visit here for an evening meal, although the menu is small, there is a good selection available, the food is all freshly cooked and prepared, hence the small menu. The food is amazing and decent sized portions. The pub is lovely old fashioned country pub, with real fires, it's definitely worth a visit.

Visited The Wizard this week and had a great meal with excellent service. Along with my family, I have visited this pub a number of times in the past as well as other pubs in the area - we keep coming back as there is always such a warm welcome, great selection of wines and local beers.

Went here for lunch after a family walk. Atmosphere and building are old country pub which is nice. It's a proper pub. Dog friendly. It's a shame the service was so slow. The food was nothing special either. Disappointing really.

Sebjgreen, Apologies for your slow service, as you could see on Tuesday we were extremely busy with only 3 tables booking in which caught us by surprise. Also on Tuesday our chef became ill early into service and had to leave, it resulted in myself helping our other chef in the kitchen so I apologise if any of the food... More

Called in with family for lunch. We were seated promptly and that was the only good thing that happened. We waited for drinks to be ordered, waited for them to be brought out, then waited for the food order to be taken and one hour since our arrival we were served mediocre food. Our family used to come here for... More

Visited for the second time during the Christmas period on the 30th December. The pub was busy but not overcrowded. I was about to ask about the possibility of food when I was horrified to hear the customers in front of me spoken to in a very curt manner when they made the same enquiry. Needless to say I didn't...
