“Not great food, and a bit overpriced”
Reviewed 14 January 2012

I took my family here recently, and felt a bit dissapointed with the quality of food compared to the price. Also there were really friendly waitresses, but too few. They had to manage a bar at the other end of the building as well as the restaurant.

“WOW for fish dishes”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

Called in on the way home from Donkey Sanctuary,our first visit her but not last.
At first glance it seems pricey but the standard of the food justifys the price.
I had Skate wing in lemon caper butter & my sister had trio of seafood both off the specials board. Both these dishes were beautifully cooked & presented & the flavours all blended nicely.Mum had steak & ale pie with mash, she was more than happy with it especially the mash. The staff were friendly & attentative.
Desserts good although the icecream was a slight let down.
Will be going again thats for sure.

“simply the best”
Reviewed 10 October 2011

when we fist sat down and looked at the menu we thought it was a bit pricey. however when the food arrived you knew why. it was cooked to perfection and there was more than enough to eat even for my son- in-law who has a bottomless pit for a stomach. i have never had meat in a pub before that hasn't been overcooked but here it was cooked to just the point where every flavour is just right. the staff were superb. they were friendly and so helpful. they made us feel we were their most important customers. we came three times in one week because we knew we would be eating real food.

“two poor experiences”
Reviewed 30 August 2011

On our first visit, the meat dishes were undercooked (the pork dangerously so) and were served less than warm. The manager rebated the cost of the pork dishes and gave us a £20 voucher. On our next visit, the waitress (who was either overworked or a dreamer) forgot to pass our order to the kitchen and we eventually ate almost an hour after ordering. The manager gave us a 20% discount off the food. Some credit has to be given for dealing with the complaints (although some complimentary snack should have been given once he knew we were hungry/unhappy and still had 20 or more minutes to wait). They should have noticed much sooner that all was not well. There won't be a third visit!
