...but that's about it! No atmosphere, not very welcoming and dogs not allowed inside. I was hoping for a country pub feel but this is not it

3rd visit now and each time the food is excellent. It comes out piping hot, is tasty (the chips are the best) and sizeable portions. One of our party had Seniors Citizens meal which was still huge! Service friendly and efficient. Will definitely go back.

Poor service during the( eat out to help out) scheme, no steak no rib no fish, all that was available was burger, and that wasn’t brilliant. Other than that and the long wait for the drinks, it was alright lolMore

We had a great evening meal and sat outside in the evening sun. Lovely burgers and we all indulged with some of their great selection of desserts. We've never had a bad meal here, so I don't understand some of the recent feedback. When we've...More

Having heard many good reports of this pub, we were very disappointed with the carvery meal. The vegetables were completely overcooked and the food, served on lukewarm plates, was not hot. The meringue in the dessert was rock hard, not as described in the menu....More

Hi Annie, thank you for your review. Will look into this as it sounds like our carvery unit is not working properly. After not being used for 4 months there may be an issue. Kind regards HL

This place has so much to offer but is let down by the food. The surroundings and play areas are lovely with plenty of outdoor seating. However, food is another matter! We arrived just after 5pm for an evening meal. The restaurant was empty at...More
