We had a lovely vegan meal here wih greta staff and lovely atomosphere in the pub.
We sat by a roaring fire and thoroughly enjoyed our meals which came with quick service!

We arrived here on a Sunday evening just before Christmas. The pub was quiet but we received a warm welcome. We opted to sit in near the bar instead of rattle about in the dining room although we overheard staff talking about how busy it had been so we were reassured it was a popular spot. Nicely decked out for Christmas and a surprising amount of atmosphere given it was nearly empty. I had a vegetarian tagine which was exceptionally tasty. Then we shared desserts which were really good quality too. Great selection of soft drinks which I'm always happy about. We live about an hour away but would definitely make the effort to visit here again.

We travelled across county for a family Boxing Day lunch. We had booked and said we had Percy, our dog (of indeterminate lineage), which meant we were seated in the very busy, but not uncomfortably so, main bar. Log fire burned, large tables of families, proper pub decor and atmosphere. The place was, as one would expect, heaving. The delightful staff - mostly young and plainly part-time - were well trained, attentive and very jolly - it was the Festive Season after all! The food arrived quickly and efficiently, as did our rather complicated drinks order (2 types of gin, a Bloody Mary, and a bottle of craft beer). The menu was high-end pub food (as opposed to Gastro-pub) and absolutely delicious, generous portions (after Christmas, may have been too generous! but who cared) and well presented. Puddings are a must. A lovely find, and a lovely situation. Sadly Boxing Day was very wet so we did not walk anywhere. But it did look like lunch could be walked off via some lovely walks nearby. Will return in the summer.

My husband and I had a spare of the moment late lunch/ early tea. The place was packed and we were lucky to be given a table. Sadly it took a while to be served as the staff behind the bar seemed more interested in gossiping between themselves than serving customers. However it was well worth the wait as once the lovely waitress took us too our table and we were seated nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious my husband said it was the best steak he had eaten in a restaurant. There was just the right amount of menu options to choose from and it was reasonably priced. The lights in the garden where stunning. Thank you.

We decided to treat ourselves today as it our Wedding Anniversary, so visited the Polgooth Inn for lunch. Absolutely perfect lunch. My husband had the steak with all the trimmings, I had the giant fish cake with poached egg on top, delicious!
To follow, I had the ginger ice cream sundae, my husband had another pint!
A really great lunchtime experience.
