One wonders about the standards of other diners. For us 3 it was average. Nice setting though, but service rather brusque. "No specials staff shortage" waitress impatient as I dithered over choice. Haddock and Chips rather greasy. Pork belly looked good. Desert ice cream cheap...and nasty!!More

Really lovely Christmas meal. Food was wonderful and a good menu. You could also choose from the non-seasonal menu, which was better for my Son. Service was excellent. They were able to accommodate us even though half the party was stuck in traffic and an...hour late for our booking. Thank you very much.More

We popped in for an evening meal. We were quite late and the place was busy, despite it being a weekday. As a result aspects of service were a little slow. Given that, overall it was fine though. Servers were helpful and friendly. Whilst you...might expect standard pub grub, the menu has some more interesting items. Prices were a little elevated to match perhaps. The items chosen were all enjoyed - the handcut chips in particular.More

After a long break from eating out, we booked a Sunday Lunch for our first family reunion lunch since the start of Covid-19. Our grand children who had travelled from France with their Mum and Dad wanted a Sunday Roast with Yorkshire Pudding. and were...very happy with the choice The welcome was warm and friendly, the service first class and the food met all our exceptions. In fact we though it was the best Sunday Roast Lunch we had ever had in a pub.More

We visited midweek for lunch as my Daughter and Granddaughter were glamping in priors Hardwick. We were made very welcome and enjoyed an excellent lunch. The food and service were first class and would definitely recommend 👍

We went when it was very busy, but the service was still very good. Fairly standard pub food, but all freshly prepared and very good. I liked the building, it was well laid out and felt COVID secure.

We called in yesterday as my son booked for 5 for a wedding anniversary dinner Nothing was too much trouble and the food was very good. Karen and her team are so professional and all the covid precautions were in place yet it seems understated...in the right way. My daughter is a notorious fussy eater but thoroughly enjoyed her meal and her chocolate brownie dessert Thank you allMore
