Nice traditional old pub. Good range of cask ales. Lovely beer garden. Didn't try food but good menu & seemed popular.

Nice comfortable pub with excellent choice of ales (and other drinks including coffee) Food was affordable with some unusual choices - Lambs Tongue in a broth, and a delicious Smoked Haddock PanHaggerty to name two. Lovely pint

Popped in for a drink on a Friday night and wished we'd had more time to stay longer. Great atmosphere with lots of locals, and very friendly staff.

Nothing marvellous to report about this place. As a pub, it's fine - a good range of ales and friendly staff. The breakfast was good - well cooked and good service. The room was large and well furnished, though a bit tired. The bathroom was awful: old suite; no shower, just hand held shower tap; old lino on the floor; poor lighting. We left feeling we'd paid too much for our stay: at £75 a night, you should at least expect a shower!!

Room was not as expected (no 6). Tired, dated & lacking TLC. Shower room was the same & the shower itself weak - hot though, I'll give it that.

Food - well provided you like stew, stew or let me think, oh yes, stew - then you're ok. Pre-prepared, just warmed up. Was quite tasty but then I was hungry.

The pub however was popular & had a decent atmosphere in the bar. Live music both nights.

Their motto is 'live well, eat well, sleep well'. Well, wishful thinking. It could be a fab place if some effort was put in. Needs some Alex Polizzi magic
