What has happened to the food???!!!! We called here last week as we always do when visiting my parents as they love to come here to eat. But the food was not too it’s usual tasty standards or presented with a nice salad Dad always...has the fish but the batter was greasy and much too crispy not light as it was before! My pie was nothing like it usually was and was presented completely different! The chips were very dry and bitty like they were left over from the day before. I will be looking for another place to eat for them from now on as when I queried why the food was different and was the chef on holiday I was told the kitchen staff had changed a couple of weeks ago and the original chef had left which is a deep shame as we always loved the food here but not after todayMore

Called here this week as not been for a few weeks, last time I came with my partner and the food was amazing! So I came with a friend Today it’s bland and was not very hot and didn’t look anything like my previous visits....! I did tell the server who said that the chef had walked out, I wasn’t sure if she just meant that day/minute or previous? She did seem embarrassed & apologised but I don’t think we will be back in a hurry sadly.More

Amazing food and amazing staff. Been a few times here and it is always good. The specials are always exceptional and great value for money. Definitely worth a visit

Your classic pub. Staff were very friendly and helpful, but the food was very average, very slow to come out and a bit overpriced.

We have had a few takeaways from here plus an amazing Sunday lunch but decided now things are getting back to some normality that we would actually have a sit down meal! So we called yesterday Saturday and had a really lovely meal, I only...just remembered to get a photo of my fish & chips so excuse my bite out of it haha It was really really really beautiful piece of fish with such a light batter! & so much better having the peas separate There were a few other tables in and a nice atmosphere but sadly a largish group came in and seemed to take over the restaurant side so it got quite rowdy! I thought they would move to the other side as that’s where the drinkers seemed to be but they didn’t sadly, I did recognize the larger lady of the group as she actually works in the pub behind the bar and she seemed quite drunk as well as embarrassingly loud….I could see that the staff that were on were not going to say anything so we decided to leave, maybe I’ll try next month midweek as it’s nice to be able to go out instead of having takeaway & at the end of the day the food was gorgeous & the service was fast…but if your going to have a ‘staff’ party them maybe move it to another part of the pub away from people eating 🤔More

Had our hopefully first of many take away Sunday roasts. I wish all the staff continued success but mostly I hope they continue to offer this service when the world returns to normal. Everything was delicious, thank you.

Decided to try a takeaway meal during lockdown and was not disappointed. Ordered fish and chips, peas, to collect at specific time. Was met at the car and meal was brought to me within 2 to 3 mins. Huge portion, piping hot and with a...small carton of tartare sauce as well. Enough for two of us. Highly recommend and will use again.More
