“Great overall, just a shame a couple of areas let it down.”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Went for an extended family day out, drove past here and decided to give it a try when driving back. From the outside, this place really does look great. Doesn't look too busy which is great if you have 9+ members in the party. Went in, and may I just say we were greeted by a wonderful lad with a beaming smile, we explained that we had prebooked a table in the morning, realised we were a few minutes early, so ordered a round of drinks and sat out in the beer garden. The time came and we went indoors into the eating area, and sat down. We ordered our meals, and kept drinks and food on a tab until the end of the evening. I must say, for freshly prepared food, we were not disappointed, and for 9 of us, all our meals came out at the same time. So I cannot fault the food, the service from the attractive gent at front of house was exceptional, the only downside were the toilets. Though in a bar/pub, one would still expect some cleanliness. Overall the grand total was a margin under £100 and for 9 of us, with drinks, we cannot grumble. I would be happy to go every week, just to see that gleaming smile from the staff. If they read these reviews, sort your facilities out, then I'll quite happily give the full stars you deserve.

“Good pub grub”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

Had a very nice family meal. All the staff were very friendly and made us feel at home there. One of the best pub grubs we've had in a long time. Good value for money too.
