Reviewed 8 June 2014

I had booked a table for 8 - all looked good at first. It's a lovely spacious and light pub and the table had been reserved. We ordered the food and it came it reasonable time but then the problems started. The chef had obviously taken no notice of what was on the orders. A mixed grill was ordered with potatoes and no peas - it came with chips and peas. The waiter was just going to bring a bowl of potatoes - we had to ask him to take the plate back. The fish pie was ordered with mash and it came with chips - and was actually cold so had to go back anyway. And we ordered sauces with the steaks that turned up 5 minutes before the end of the meal. We also had to ask for all the sides we had ordered as they never came out. What made it worse was that there was only 1 waiter serving our table and all the going back and forth meant that some meals and sides were received when others had nearly finished. We complained and asked to see the manager - she sent a message back with the waiter saying we could have 20% off but didn't see sight of her in person (though the team leader did come over at the end and apologise). It's a shame because the food was actually very nice and good value for money but they obviously struggle with large parties.

Went for our second visit and we were not dissappointed. Excellent value food that tasted really good. Good range of cask beers and on a Fri bottle of Prosceco for £10. Nachos excellent for starter, gammon excellent followed by very good desserts. Pleasant service and helpful.

Great outside space sat in the sunshine with a cider a beer and some very nice food. I had the burger special which was delicious and my dining companion had the plough mans which was very good indeed, pork pie was delicious. Nice quick service and good value.

Had lunch yesterday and was pleasantly surprised to0 find things much improved since my last pub was disastrous visit. the place was clean and tidy and the food was nicely prepared, .served hot and promptly. Staff were attentive without being intrusive. Will definitely give this pub another chance.

We've been many times but recently the quantity and quality of the food has plummeted. My fish and chips were teeny with under cooked chips and stale bread and butter. We asked about mushrooms in the pie but they couldn't tell us as it's bought in in bulk. We did get a discount and free pud but were only given a limited selection to choose from! Staff struggled to cope with our complaint. Won't be back.
