28 People booked in advance for skittle alley. 2 of us had to wait 20 minutes to eventually get any service at the bar despite no other customers waiting. Consequently a queue formed behind us of over 20 people waiting to get drinks before the skittles could start. No draft beer available. Bar person unable to add up 4 x... More

Simila to our previous family of 6 visit our essentially reserved table was ready and waiting staff most attentive although very busy. Our meals were ALL excellently presented and of good quality. Not having a starter proved a good idea as we just mansged the delicious sweets.

We used to go here on a few occasions, being local. However, the last couple of times we had visited the service was slow to say the least. We thought we would give it another go, as we had an offer come through. " What a change", not to the place it's self, but to the service. It was back... More

The food is excellent as is the service and the atmosphere. If the weather is good then al fresco is the order of the day, I can highly recommend this pub for all types of occasion be it party, date, or just spur of the moment.

We booked a room in this pub-restaurant for a large group meal to celebrate a special occasion. The food was of good quality and good value for money. We were a very large group and were served quickly and efficiently. The young, male barman/waiter and the female manager could not have been more helpful and professional. Thank you.
