Limited menu. Not all items listed were available - run out!! Food poorly cooked and cold when served. Salad consisted of only a few lettuce leaves. We were told they do not serve coleslaw!!
Dined outside as the pub inside was dirty. Unable to provide beermats when requested - run out!!

Wednesday night is curry night. Yes, boil in the bag/microwaved curry. Only saving grace was the cheap drink you can order with it. I wonder who this pub is aiming at? Not the better off sophisticated market, evidently, but not those seeking good value either.

Limited menu not helped by running out of stuff, food not freshly cooked and obviously from frozen. Girl in kitchen trying hard to do cooking and service as well, good thing it was cheap food but it looked and tasted like it very sadly

We're very local and stopped using the pub when the last manager/tenant was in situ. We decided to return today, albeit with trepidation, for a Birthday Lunch and were both totally and pleasantly surprised at how the New Management have begun to improve the place and get it back on track.
We were greeted with a friendly face and very pleasant manner. The menu was adequate, food and service were very good and prompt after ordering, unlike previous occasions.
Will certainly be visiting again more often now.
A very pleasant and enjoyable visit.

Went here in the snowy weather for a lunch time warm up and get together, no good today as partner had fallen down the stairs! Staff scruffy, only youngsters running the show, epic fail all round, even when the pub is up and running, food is of poor quality, often shouting with the owners, such a shame that a once lovely village pub, that used to be packed has now gone down the pan.
