“More than worth a visit – or several”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

This is an excellent pub with a smallish restaurant and a differing selection of ales on hand-pumps. Bev & Alan have been in command there for six years and it is better than ever. One reviewer has moaned about the absence of kids, dogs and wifi – another bonus if you're looking for a quiet drink where you can hear yourself speak! The bar snacks at lunch-time are tasty and good value as are the more "formal" meals in the restaurant. There is the occasional live music evening for those who wish for a bit more action, but these are infrequent, although they seem very popular; it gets a bit elbow-to-elbow on those occasions. Give it a try.

“Good, old pub”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Bar a little narrow. Service very good (especially if you are known.... Which I'm not! ). Not used the restaurant but hear the food is good.

“Unexpected excellence”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We have now lunched here twice and have been very impressed with the quality of the food, the extremely pleasant atmosphere and the charming, quietly attentive service. The vegetarian meal offered is superb and the fish dish(lemon sole) was deemed first class. The vegetables have been beautifully fresh and cooked perfectly. We also consider the price to be very reasonable. We will be returning!

“Dreadful experience, avoid at all costs”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Got to be about my least favourite place on earth, Owners were unbelievably rude to me and a group of our friends around a year ago to the point at which I would never consider coming here again. In terms of decor the place seemed pretty dated and stale! Can't steer enough people away from this pub have never been made to feel so bad, can't imagine the foods great here either.

“A realy friendly place for a Sunday get together with family”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

First visit to this Pub ~ needed a mid-way place for a family get together . Very impressed with the friendly service and nice meal. Good choice of options as well as the normal Sunday roast and a nice selection of puds. We were allowed to linger over the meal and catch up with the news even though the restaurant emptied as the clock ticked past 2:30 ~ a good choice for a rendevouz ~ nice and relaxing atmosphere. Will ad this Pup to our list ~ hope to be back sometime..
