Our family had mix of everything, it was all incredible. Great beers on tap, friendly staff. Even have my Dad fish cutlery to have with his skate. It's a little thing but I noticed it! Been a free times, always spot on.

Lovely pub and garden ,food excellent apart from the fish and chips which are clearly supermarket bought. Lousy service the first time we went as the technology which passes orders from the bar area to the kitchen broke down and our order was not received. The inexperienced barman who took the order only confirmed this when I asked after 35 minutes " Is there any sign of our meals" We waited a further 30 minutes until they arrived . There was no sign of management nor did we receive any apology for having to wait over an hour to eat. We went there 3 times during a weeks holiday each time the place was only a quarter full but the service was pretty slow each time. Apart from a very nice young woman in Her 30's the staff were kids in their late teens who were pretty useless. On our final visit my wife's new potatoes were rock hard and not cooked properly for which there is no excuse even if the place had been full but there were only a handful of people in the place.

Always recommend booking. We hadn't booked on Tuesday so we had to wait to be served dinner however staff were courteous. Drinks good food excellent. Place does get busy which is a good sign. Little gem.

We arrived a little before our booked time and offered to order, asked to wait a minute then a large party came in and were served first. Caught the waiters eye and got a very offhand "2 minutes" ten minutes later got the same patronising "2 mins". 15 minutes later the barman decided to take our order by which time some of our choices had "run out". Only a superficial apology and no sign of management not even an offer of a free drink. Had we not been with friends we would have walked out without eating. This is what comes of using young, untrained staff and leaving them unsupervised.
