“Sunday Lunch.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

We have used this pub on several occasions during the last year, and have always given high praise for the food and good, although slow service.On this occasion, we felt things were not so good. We seemed to be the only people eating at the time, and the service was still rather slow, and the food did seem a little overcooked.
We had our 10 month old grandaughter with us on this occasion, I asked if we could have a couple of veg. on a plate and we would pay a little extra, and we were told NO, we would have to order from the menu.,Customer service was a little lacking we felt.
Dont be put off this pub, generally it is very good, but we left an hour later, and the pub was still very quiet, so maybe we were not the only persons to be a little disappointed, as it has until recently been very busy.

Sincerest apologies for any confusion on our part with the kids meal deal. The answer should have been YES!
Please don't let it put you off visiting again xxx

“Excellent pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

This pub has it all great food, BT and Sky for sports and on the odd occasion a live band. Was down at my brothers for the weekend and spent Saturday night there and the band was really good. Back in on Sunday for the footy and some nosh. Have to say you must try Lees Scotch eggs made with black pudding.

“Amazing, excellent food and excellent service 5***** Chefs skills outstanding!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

We had a party of about 20, for my partners parents, Peggy and Bryans 50th wedding anniversary!! Before hand Kate, I think the proprietor contacted us many times to find meal preferences and any special dietary requirements, well my partner Steve and I are trying very hard to be vegans and asked if this would be ok, of which Kate replied that she would see what 'Chef' could come up with, with swift responses by email, we agreed upon a lemon and basil quinoa salad, with sweet potato fondant, which I have to say was stunning and utmost effort was made to make sure that we all received our meals in a timely fashion, and rare for this many meals, every meal was hot and done to perfection! Every dish looked exquisite and Cordon Bleu style, and when we crumpled and gave into the dairy temptation of dessert, we just received smiles and not the look of disdain that I feared! The service was exceptional, everyone warm and friendly, and when I walked into the pub I thought it had a beautiful, exciting and vibrant atmosphere, but also warm and homely at the same time! I would definitely love to eat there again, many more times, but I may have to forego the vegan thing to try every dish on the menu!!!! And my partner Steve also thought it was the best meal he had ever had in a pub in his life, and I wholeheartedly agree!!! Wow, wow, wow this place should be one of the top restaurants in the country!!!! Thankyou so much Kate and Chef for exquisite food and service and a beautiful evening!!! Clare and Steve :)

“pricey for lunch but quite good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

we stopped here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the menu. the nibbles section of the menu was a little deceptive in that the portions are quite large, we thought we were just getting something to nibble on before our mains came out, luckily we didn't order a starter too ! well presented food and quite tasty. the belly pork my husband ordered could have done with being cooked a little longer and to have it served with only two small roast potatoes would have made it a small meal had he not also shared in the nibbles to start.

Glad to hear that you were pleasantly surprised by our freshly cooked, innovative menu and that the portion sizes were a little on the large size. Rather too much than too little i always say. And you are correct you tend to get what you pay for nowadays. Once again value for money does not necessarily mean cheap.
