“Lovely grub!”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

Went here as part of a large group early on a Saturday evening. Didn't sample the beer as I was driving!

The service wasn't the fastest but all in our party of ten enjoyed our food. I had a really nice chicken, ham and leek pie and my wife a risotto. Both these mains were very good. Decent portions and tasty fare. The desserts were also very good, although strangely for so early on in the evening there was no 'sponge of the day' left!

Nothing to complain about and I'd certainly go again.

“Hopeless and very poor on service”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

We had the scollops as a starter, which was smothered with some sauce, by the time we got our meal, it had solidified. Horrible

The mains were not much better.

Worst meal of the year so far.

They advertise the fact its 'award winning food'

Please evidence this!!!

“This is a place to go:)”
Reviewed 9 December 2011

We visited for my daughters birthday with 19 family members. The food was excellent all home cooked, no one rushed you. I pre ordered with Micheal the owner and made a couple of mistakes but this didn't phase them:) everything ran smooth and all of the party have commented that they will go back and had aost enjoyable night. The pub has just undergone a refurb and looks fab:). Thankyou to Micheal, Isla and team
