Good value food, plenty of it, nothing overly special but brilliant value.
2 for 1 offer, food is good quality and the staff very helpful and chatty.
We love it for mid week eating out.
Sunday lunch excellent value.

Came here two years ago and was fantastic. Service excellent and food, but this year not so good, came with family/friends on saterday night and service wasn't good as weren't checked on when had food, we had empty glasses and weren't asked if wanted anymore drinks, miserable staff, exept one (blonde) waitress who did actually smile, peas were like bullets, onion rings soggy, food luke warm.
I will return next time but hopefully will have trained your staff to meet customers expectations.

We used the function room for a Diamond Wedding anniversary and had a great time - the room has a separate entrance, with outside seating area which was great in the recent sunny weather, and was free for our part of about 30.

The restaurant meals were pre-booked, but the coped well with the inevitable last minute changes and all the meals arrived pretty much together - as well as you can with 30+. We were also able to have mail meals on the two for one and it made it a very reasonable priced celebration event.

The menu had all the usual pub fare of pies, steaks, and burgers - but unless you really, really like lemon I'd avoid the lemon chicken - it was seriously lemony!

Oh dear. Visited here on Sunday 22 June and what a huge disappointment. I can honestly say, that the roast dinner was the worst roast I have ever had – consisting of a dry, skinless chicken breast (possibly roasted I grant you, but certainly not in the traditional method and positively desiccated), 2 under-cooked, rubbery new potatoes, a single ball of stuffing so small that it was almost invisible to the naked eye, a rock-hard Yorkshire pud and to top it all, the most over-cooked vile veg you could imagine. My broccoli was absolute mush that fell between my fork tines and the carrots weren’t far off from being pureed either. To add insult to injury, this excuse of a meal was £12.95. Yes! £12.95. More the fool me for paying and/or not complaining you may say, but we were out with people and it simply didn’t seem polite to do so. Needless to say, the other people we ate with also sat with glum faces and begrudging wallets (I won’t go into all the other meals but let’s say there was awful, cheap sausages and a pie with a gravy so thin that it was more like a watery soup with a puff pastry lid.) Needless to say, we won’t be returning – and advise others thinking of a decent meal out to also stay well clear!

We are a Somerset based geriatric walking(strolling ) club, and over the past years have used this pub as a convenient place to meet and eat.
Thirteen of us eventually assembled after completing various walks in the wonderful woods which surround this pub.As pensioners the two for one deal appealed to us.
Service was pleasant, and money saving advice was heeded.
The food was well cooked, and evidenced by the fact that all the plates were cleared, the quality also good.
Not all of us could manage a dessert, but those who did again cleared their plates.
One word of warning........if you suffer from high cholesterol avoid the Brownie Sundae!
