We met our friends there this week, my first visit. A real friendly atmosphere and staff.The food was really good and the portions were a very good size, mains served with freshly cooked veg. We felt the pricing justified the quality.

Sunday roast dinners were lovely, separate large plate of vegetables to share between two. Staff seemed a bit rushed off their feet and not too attentive, two young boys, I would assume they were understaffed for a Sunday. So the wait for our table we booked days in advance and at the bar was long too. Wouldn't rush back, the... More

The pork crackling was cooked perfectly unfortunately the beef was over done and the veg and roast potatoes appeared to have been waiting several hours for us to arrive. On the whole okay but would... More

We have been dining in this restaurant for many years. It once served good hearty home cooked food. Nothing fancy just wholesome and value for money. It was also renowned for its genourous portion sizes. We have had five disappointing meals lately. Portion sizes are nearly half of what they used to be and we fear now that there is... More

My girlfriend and I stayed local to the pub and ate here one night. We both had the fish pie, which was perfect - the fish tasted fresh and the whole meal was very hearty. The atmosphere in the dining room was nice, and the staff made it easy to feel comfortable whilst always being at hand when we needed... More
