Six of us went for a meal last nigh and I had probably the most tender delicious liver I've ever eaten. It was as tender as possible and the gravy was really delicious. If I had one criticism and it's just that I had my hopes set on having a steak pie and this pub offers no "pub grub" so don't go expecting bangers and mashed or steak pie. Otherwise, have no fear you will get an excellent meal.

Thank you for this feedback. I'm delighted you thought the liver was the most tender delicious liver you have had. Sorry you were disappointed at the lack of pies. We do occasionally offer them on our Specials menu, but naturally not all the time and unfortunately not on the night you were here. Perhaps you'll be more lucky next time.

Have been frequenting the Hit or Miss for many years but still love it. Threw a surprise 60th for my father in law and we were looked after very well. Bbq was delicious and plentiful. So to wrap it up a quintessential English pub with the service and food the match. Oh and a big thanks to Mike,Mary and the team .

I recently went one lunch time and then again for Sunday lunch. The food was excellent both times and the staff were friendly and efficient. The warm brie open sandwich was delicious and my friends tuna sandwich was about 3 inches high and very tasty.My father, brother and husband's roast beef Sunday lunch was approved by all and the 2 vegetarians enjoyed a tortilla bake with lots of vegetables. We were all too full to have a pudding, the portions are very generous.

Thanks for taking the time for this review. We're pleased you think our food is excellent and the staff friendly and efficient. We are renowned for our sandwiches and surprised that many pubs don't offer them. We are particularly pleased that the vegetarians enjoyed their meals as we try to make these dishes as interesting as possible. A pity you had no room for puds as these are especially good and all made by our own chefs. Perhaps next time!
