We went in this morning to try their breakfast having seen their "A" board on the High Street. First time we have been in this pub. The man who greeted us was very helpful and friendly throughout our visit. He had the sort of personality that encourages a return visit. We had the full English breakfast. Excellent quality,well cooked food....

Went on a Sunday lunch time for a drink. Very welcoming not only from the bar staff - who I think was the landlord - but also from others who were at the pub. Unfortunately these type of pubs are falling by the wayside. We did not eat, but the food looked very good and everyone was enjoying themselves, mainly...

Popped in here last week as I seen a sign that they were serving breakfast. A full English was reasonably priced at £5.99, it was all cooked fresh, I cannot recommend it enough! I will defiantly be returning. The pub was very clean and I felt very welcome from the moment of entering until I left.

At last I have found a real pub, not some pretend themed affair. The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. Super hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them and the food is excellent. My place of choice for a breakfasts out as they are brilliant.

We went on a recommendation as we like a nice breakfast and this has definately become our new favourite, quality ingredients (the sausages were amazing) and non greasy, as my husband said on facebook and I quote: "We have a few cafe's that we have frequented over the years. Usually once a month we go for breakfast. The Foundry has...

Went again today and had a fabulous Sunday lunch - I had smoked mackerel pate which was the best I have ever tasted and my fiancé had prawn cocktail which looked delicious. I had roast beef and he had roast lamb, both served with crispy roast potatoes, fresh veg, cauliflower cheese and Yorkshire plus Tracey offered us extra gravy without...
