I recently visited this pub with a group of friends for an evening meal. The upstairs is set up as a restaurant and the downstairs is more of a pub/bar. We went mid-week and the restaurant was fairly quiet.
The menu is quite extensive with a good variety. There is a combination of pub food (I had steak and ale pie) and restaurant-style dishes. Regardless of the order, the food was of an excellent quality, the vegetables were cooked perfectly and the chips were crispy without any surplus oil/fat. I tried a couple of different ales over the evening and both had been kept well and much enjoyed!
The staff were also excellent. They generally left us to ourselves but it was easy to get their attention when we needed anything and were efficient when sorting out the bill etc. The prices varied quite a lot depending on what you ate, my pie was only just over £10 but some of the more restauranty dishes were £20-£25. However, I'm fairly confident that this was a fair reflection of the ingredient quality and I don't think any of our party would quibble with the final bill.
On the whole, we had a lovely time. We were more there for the occasion than for the food but I would definitely have no hesitation going back another time. Only one word of caution.... only park in the rear carpark if you are confident of your hand-brake - it's on quite a slope!
