Very good food and the pudding of the day was excellent. The venison steak was really good and the Iron steak was as well.

“A wonderful pub with rooms”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

We had a great meal here and stayed the night, the room was excellent, recently refurbished and overlooking the beer garden. The meal was excellent, we didn't wait very long even though the restaurant was really busy -most tables including the beer garden were full. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is cooked to order and really very good

“Gave order earlier in the day but food arrived after unacceptable wait”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

Food quite nice but blimey, eay before you leave home as service is so slow. Rude response when we asked about our order which we had given in at their request earlier in day. Told us that food came out in order! Rubbish and rude. Second time this has happened to us here. There will not be a third.

“Had to leave food took so long”
Reviewed 7 August 2013 via mobile

I arrived here at around 2.20 on a Tuesday afternoon and ordered two cheese sandwiches. I had to leave at 3pm to attend a prior engagement but I thought 40 minutes would be more than enough time to have a sandwich. Anyway, I started to worry after a customer complained at the bar that she had "been waiting ages for some sandwiches". This place was dreadfully understaffed with only one person taking orders, pulling pints, serving food and clearing away. I frankly felt quite sorry for her as she was rushed off her feet and had to apologize numerous times for something that wasn't her fault. This is a management issue where they obviously need to hire more bar and kitchen staff. After 40minutes I explained that I had to leave and I got a refund no problem but only a half hearted apology. Do not come here If you want a quick pub snack because I imagine if we had stayed we would have had to wait over an hour for a cold sandwich which is rediculous. Management - sort it out !
