Never had a bad meal here, have eaten as a couple on many occasions, and as a bigger party of up to 14(have eaten in the bar and restaurant). Food tasty, hot and very good value. Also at the moment they have half price menu on a monday! (Except desserts)Portions and quality exactly the same.

Been here a few times for the karaoke nights. Drinks are reasonably priced but it can get very busy here which leaves little room to manoeuvre inside. Lovely beer garden though and ample parking. Shame the majority of the staff are miserable all of the time, it really doesn't hurt to smile.

Had an evening meal here it looked like they had refurbished the pub and they were having a pub quiz that evening. Food was well cooked and portions were generous
