“Sunday lunch”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

We have eaten here several times on a Sunday lunchtime and had quite a good meal. Although I find the vegetables to be 'mass catered'. If you are lucky they are cooked just right - it's a bit pot luck. Used to be a really great pub, but I think it has lost out to popularity!!

“Great atmosphere and food”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Lovely pub with comfortable seating. Log fire in the winter. Food always fresh and lots of choice, even a fussy eater should fine something they will enjoy. Staff friendly and helpful. Pulled pork sandwich is devine and chips are fantastic. Lots of parking too.

“Saturday lunch treat”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

We went here as our "valentines" meal (far too busy on valentines night :) )
we had the prawn cocktail and whitebait for starters then the mixed grill and the pork steak. The food was lovely and the meat was very tasty and moist. The decor of the pub is older country which is what we like.

The food came out in good time and was good and hot. Both meals beat us as we couldnt quite eat it all up. Shame as we were really excited about the desserts. Could have eaten every one of the desserts, would have been hard to make a decision which one to have.

We will certainly be going back!

The menu is always full and varied and they are more than happy to vary meals to suit even the most fussy diner. we do not hesitate to recommend this to our friends and have had many a happy family meal here and will continue to do so for many years to come
