Went there this evening. It was the last night of our holiday so I ordered a steak. Because of a digestive condition I can't digest steak that is well done. I ordered a medium rare steak and my husband ordered a well done steak. When they arrived we couldn't tell the difference. I tried to eat mine but it would not go down. After several trips to the loo, I had to leave my entire dinner. I did tell the waiter that I had ordered a medium rare steak but he just shrugged his shoulders. Very unfortunate evening, I'm afraid.

This pub is tucked away but worth a visit. We were recommended to pay a visit here and glad we did. Good beer and tasty food.

Tried to eat here, but unfortunately due to staff shortages.(unsure planned or unplanned) we were told there was 1 hour at least, for any meal. During this coversation another customer complained they had already waited over 45 mins for their meal, nothing fancy, very basic so gave up & went elsewhere.During quiet periods this is a great place to eat, but worry if they cannot cope with food orders in middle season, how will they cope in high season.I know its hard to juggle & estimate staff, but if you are building a business on food, you need staff to cover all periods.Such a shame, as their bubble & squeak, if you have the patience to wait, is great.
