I love this pub. Service is good with friendly young staff, in the main. It's bigger than you think with some little nooks and crannies. Food is good. Have had a full meal a couple of times and it's good quality pub food, served very well. Have also had the cheeseboard which is great. Would suggest changing the choice of... More

It's fantastic every time we go here. We are so lucky to have such a great pub on our doorstep. The new managers Craig and phoebe are really hardworking and clearly muck in with the team. Brilliant food, always prepared well... remember to book though now as it gets really busy!!

Visited as a group of four, got 1 round of drinks at 730 and were never asked again all night. Asked if we could order deserts and was told to look at menu and she would take our order, never returned, gave up after an hour. Left at 11pm service needs improving there is a lot of competition out there

Hello allenruth, Thanks for reviewing us. No issue of this sort was brought to light on the night in question and I have asked my team for their thoughts on any table that may have been slightly neglected in the pub that night. The characterisation of the service you receive is very unusual so I would be very grateful if... More

The owner/Manager is the most arrogant oerson I have ever met. To be fair the staff were great and food was good, but this oerson ruined it for me. The issue I had he just did not want to listen.
