Called for a lunch on Friday. Always a good sign when locals are present. Our dog thought it was her birthday; so many treats offered (after seeking permission}.There was a wonderful fire replenished often in the bar. The staff were so friendly, and our meals arrived quickly. We will be going again, and taking other to appreciate this comfy old pub.

Not the usual standard, in fact it was poor. The evening was topped off by the rudeness of the manager.
To begin l ordered the burger with cheesy chips, l got plain chips, when l pointed this out that l ordered cheesy chips the waitress said "oh yeh my mistake," she went away and came back with a bowl of grated cheese? Not what l imagined cheesy chips to be.
To end the night we ordered 2 liquor coffees quote "served in a glass topped with whipped cream and accompanied by mint chocolates. When they arrived there was no whipped cream so l asked where is my cream. The young waiter said we haven't got any cream!! Not really good enough if you are advertising liquor coffees with whipped cream.
When l went to pay the bill l again pointed out what was on the menu and what we received, the lady went and told the manager he replied a liquor coffee is £4 with or without cream. I pointed out that the menu says with cream it says nothing about without cream.
He using bad language said how much is whipped cream then said its about £0.05p. He told the waitress to knock £0.10p off the bill. To save him losing any profit for the evening l told the waitress to charge the full amount. He missed the fact that that is not the point his menu says whipped cream.
We have been regular customers for over two years to the bar and restraunt spending on average £48 to £50 a time in the restraunt, but due to the managers total lack of politness and understanding of customer service and his rudeness, we will be looking elsewhere for our evenings out.

I have been struggling for words to respond to your review. We clearly let ourselves down on this occasion and can only apologise for the chain of events which led to it.
