Reviewed yesterday NEW

We met a friend here who lives locally and who had recommended the pub. The restaurant is small and it was fortunate that he had reserved a table. We ordered from the lunch menu/light bites and it was excellent value and plentiful. I had the tuna melt, which was served with very tasty chips and a small side salad. Other... More

This is a popular restaurant with the guests of our holiday cottage. Worthy of a mention as once again they provided good service and good choice of food for a birthday party of 14, a mix of toddlers to 60 year olds.

Partner and I went for Sunday lunch carvery on recommendation. Greeted straight away, and service both prompt and friendly throughout. Carvery was good- generous portions of beef, pork, gammon or turkey available, although having lamb would have been nice at Easter. Roasties OK, but suffering from the usual effect of mass catering. Cabbage a bit watery but fine. Peas. Mixed... More

We had a fantastic meal here, it has a very welcoming atmosphere inside. We prefer to sit in the pub end because of how cosy it feels. Food is delicious and reasonabley priced.

This is just the best carvery anywhere; they always have four different roast joints, home cooked to perfection with delicious array of fresh vegetables! Excellent friendly, helpful staff and lovely modern decor!!! It's a must but make sure you book in advance as always sold out!

Called in for dinner again on my way home after a long day away. Received a warm welcome from the staff. Good real ale and an excellent medium rare fillet steak with home cooked chips. Just what I needed. I left replete and content, and will most certainly return when I'm in the area.
