“Excellent food and very friendly staff”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We had an evening meal at this pub on New Years Day. There were 3 of us and we thought we might have a problem getting a table that day but there was no problem at all.The food was served extremely quickly and it was excellent, well cooked and piping hot. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and it was overall a thoroughly enjoyable evening. The atmosphere in the pub is good too. The cost of the meal was reasonable too.

“Very good value”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

We have been here on a number of occasions and cannot fault the quality and value of the food. There is a pensioners special lunch menu at reduced rates from Tuesday to Friday which is particularly good value. The food is well cooked and the service friendly. Many items on the menu are home made and I especially recommend the banoffee pie! Delicious. There is a daily choice of homemade pie and a fish option.

Sunday see a traditional Sunday lunch menu with a choice of meats, vegetables are well cooked, neither al dente nor boiled to death!

The wine menu is small, but the choices are good and reasonably priced.

All in all, a very good choice for lunch or dinner in a traditional English pub.
