Reviewed 25 February 2014

I have been passing this place a lot recently and am very keen to have a try, but has it closed or is it being refurbished?

“Needs uncompromising clean and coat of paint.”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Not a bad pub but it needs some TLC. The outside looks idyllic. The inside is a reasonable and authentic layout but suffered when we came in from being very run down and in need of a heavy duty clean and some fresh paint. Nothing florid or silly but a clean make over. Add in the slightly murky sheen on the glasses and feint signs of unaided pub odours and there is a mildly off-putting ambience. This place could be so good. Food OK.

“Deceptive outside appearance”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

We called here as the place looks good and inviting FROM THE OUTSIDE ! and we planned to stay for lunch. The place would benefit from a thorough cleaning inside. We had to wait ages to get served although the place was almost empty. When we did eventually get served the drinks arrived in dirty glasses. Decided not to sample the food and left.
Such a waste as this place obviouslty has great potential under the right management. first and last visit for us
