Stopped for lunch without booking. Excellent table in bar area. Warmed by log burning stove. Efficient service without being annoying. Good selection of starters and main courses. Fish and chips excellent (fish portion size not too large) with well made mushy peas.

The quality of the food was fine, the service was slow, the portion sizes were an absolute joke. Cannot understand why a restaurant chooses to serve such measly and inadequate portions. Wont be going here again. Left feeling hungry and ripped-off.

The menu is varied for each course but one's first impression is that a three course meal was going to be expensive. That aside orders were placed and expectations rose! When the food arrived, in our case after a long wait (the restaurant was not full) the portions were quite small: the soup in a lovely dish was minute, the... More

Food was excellent. The service was good, leaving a good space of time between courses. Staff were polite and helpful. Very friendly too. Would recommend to anyone.

We were a family group of 5, who popped in for an early dinner. Returning, having had an excellent meal previously, this time we left disappointed Maybe we had too high expectations. 4/5 of the dinners were fine, guess I just lucked out this time. .

Food very well presented and very tasty. Staff were very friendly and we were made to feel very welcome. We had a large family group including children and they were treated very well though there isn't a separate childrens' meal.

Popped in on NYE on a whim for lunch. Very nice. Well cooked and presented. Really good service. Was a little pricey for pub grub but not exorbitant. My only moan was the portion size.......I didn't have enough chips with my fish..........

The Pub was busy while the decoration was looking a little tired it was clean and comfortable We had a soup of the day Moroccan Lamb which was much appreciated by my companion. The Pork terrine was also excellent The staff were also friendly and effective Lovely day beautiful countryside and excellent snack

I had a spicy soup for starter with Pork as my main course. Both were very nicely presented and tasted as good as they looked. The restaurant is most comfortable and nicely laid out with a lot of space between tables and was spotlessly clean. We were greeted on arrival and our coats were taken away to be hung up.... More

We visited this pub today with friends and found the menu to be small on choice and small on portion size but keen on price steaks £22 i personally couldnt see that price justified it was just a steak with chunky chips nothing special at all. The cheese board was my biggest shock £11 for the smallest meanest board i... More
