Reviewed 5 February 2016 via mobile

Visited weekday lunchtime with family and friends. This is a traditional pub in an old building with low ceilings and wooden beams. There are unusual touches like a fish tank in one of the seating areas and the small animals outside. It took quite a long time for anyone to come to our table and we weren't sure if we were supposed to order at the bar as it didn't say on the menu, but once the waitress had been over our drinks arrived quickly and we didn't wait long for the food either. Everything was hot and fresh. The menu is fairly standard pub food at very reasonable prices, and servings are good. I'm fed up of Gastropubs that give you basic food tarted up a bit and charge twice the price so it was nice to be somewhere that is an actual pub with pub meals. We were all happy with what we had and it came to a very reasonable £55 for five meals, six soft drinks and three hot drinks.

Some parts were a bit "spit and sawdust" here - drinks plonked down a bit haphazardly, 'was you wanting anything else' rather than 'would you like anything else', plastic long life milk with coffees and rather old and uncomfortable furniture, buy the veritable tuck shop of crisps and chocolate bars for sale behind the bar made me smile and there are many positives to be found. would happily go again.

We arrived on a Sunday and they had only just opened. We walked in and no one greeted us. We stood around while the lady was setting up the tables. Which I would of expected to be done already. We asked where we would be seated, as we pre booked. We was told our table wasn't ready yet. We arrived dead on time. Eventually we sat down but it was a bit of squeeze. 8 of us round one table all squashed up on a bench. However, it gets better. The food was delicious, hot and fresh. The Sunday dinner was full of meat and a good variety of vegetables. You can order extra potatoes which I recommend if three is not enough, as it wasn't for me. We had desert. I had chocolate fudge cake with pouring cream. Ask for the cream separate. As my bowl was full of it and it made the cake so soggy. Overall a lovely visit. Reasonable prices. And good service when you finally get seated.
