YOU CAN'T GO WRONG HERE!! If you want have a great English meal in a 15th Century Pub, then this is the place. We were lucky enough to arrive on 'Fish Friday' and Michael the Chef didn't disappoint with his wonderful cooking. The service was excellent as well, with Emma providing friendly and helpful attention to everything we wanted.

We had booked a table for 7 for 2 p.m. All was going well with a very knowledgeable and agreeable waitress, who understood the concept of gluten free (believe me this is not always the case!) for myself, took our order only to return and say they had run out of lamb! 5 of our party had requested the lamb,...

Saturday evening meal. Nice atmosphere and a pleasant space. Good choice of dishes for starters and main course. Food was tasty and hot. We all enjoyed our meals. Paid approx £20 per head for starter plus main course excluding drinks. Would have preferred a menu at the table rather than having to walk over to boards on the wall. Service... More

On arrival, there was no greeting from the lady behind the bar. We almost felt that we were not at all welcome in the pub. However, we were pleasantly surprised by the excellent food. It such a pity that overall it was not a good experience due to an indifferent member of staff. We'll try again as the food was... More

Enjoyed a lovely Sunday lunch. The food was fresh and lovely selection of vegetables. I suggest you book a table as it was busy. The desserts are expensive but the portions are huge. Perhaps cut the potion size and reduce the price. Guess there is a lot of wastage. The portion size did not tempt me. I had a Bailly's... More

Pleasant pub, food choice good, ideal location and good beer. On the slight minus side, found lady running the please a little off putting. When you reserve a table, it would have been a good idea to attach our names To the gold "reserved" table tag. As I made the error of just sitting down at a random table for... More

Food was ok - fresh produce, but not much choice for me. Pub itself is very nice and cosy, although the person behind the bar was a little cold and not very inviting. If it's busy, you tend to have to stand to have just a drink as all the tables are used for food bookings.

This pub has been doing a roaring business for the last year or so, since it was re-opened after a period of closure. The relaunch has been going for a time, and after an itially good start, keeps getting better. Of particular note is the SUnday Roasts, which are probably the best in the area, being succulent and prepared with... More
