“£85.20 well spent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2012

We live locally and we went here for my son's birthday meal-having been there when under previous owners we thought it would be a good bet and we weren't wrong-in fact it was better!

We ordered 2 ordered of the cajun chicken specials, 2 gammon steaks, 1 mixed grill and 1 kids pizza meal (which refereshingly came with something other than chips ie a small side salad and sweet corn) 2 glasses of sprite, a pint of lager and a bottle of house red all in £85.20. The host was attentive, took our drinks ordered soon after arriving and returned to take the food ordered once we had considered the menu, which is mainly meat and fish based but there is a specials board as well to choose from. We had to wait about 30 minutes, during which time my daughter age 5, was becoming restless, the host and owner could see this and low and behold, without us asking, 2 minutes later after she said she was hungry her food arrived! Our food was well worth waiting for, freshly prepared, piping hot and plates that full of food we did not know where to start, especially with the mixed grill!

Our daughte, rated this is as gorgeous- so for those of you with families I can say that this is great for kids, with a good choice to choose from-we will be back again as we believe in supporting local businesses but for those of you from outside the area this is well worth a visit-nice relaxed atmosphere with no one hurrying you to leave your table!

“Ok, but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2012 via mobile

Couldn't get in the two places we tried to book (both full) so went here. Steaks are ok, but there's an overall air of averageness about the place. Couldn't figure out if it was a pub that does food, or a restaurant. Big portions, but there's nothing special about the place.

“Great steaks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

We had a couple of fantastic steaks that shows promise from a newly opened restaurant. A larger wine list will no doubt follow as the custom will build quickly at this little gem of a business.

“Cosy, friendly, great steaks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 December 2010

Went here with 5 friends whilst on a mountain biking trip last weekend.
Sat by the roaring fire with a glass of red & ordered our food. Very relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
Had starters of rarebit & bruschetta - generous & tasty
Mains were sirloin & fillet steak - well cooked to our requirements & locally sourced
Desserts were all apple crumbles - These took a while to arrive as they were freshly prepared & tasty.
Very good value & had a great evening .
