“Very good Sunday lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Parking a bit tight but once inside, a lovely modern pub with great staff. Decent regular menu and specials but we are tempted by the Sunday dinner. And it doesn't disappoint. Choice of roast beef, lamb or pork. Generous serving of beef with roast potatoes and Yorkshire pud then dishes of freshly cooked vegetables. Maybe a jug of extra gravy would have improved things? But a minor gripe. Our friend had the pie and mushy peas (he's a southerner and they don't do mushy peas down there!) and he seemed happy. Both drinks and food served at the table which is nice and good coffee, a deal breaker for me. Would recommend.

“Brilliant Sunday Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

We went here for the first time this Sunday, and was very impressed. The place is very nice inside and the staff are good. The food was amazing, we had the beef and lamb dinners and both were excellent. Will be going back again for sure!
