Delicious food and extensive menu, all food cooked to perfection. We had both starters and mains and were too full for dessert. Decent sized portions. Dog friendly, and suitable for families. Service was slow- but we were not in a rush!

Love this pub - the building itself and the gardens are great. Visited with friends for the first time in ages and the food was as good as I remembered. The only thing letting it down was the waitress service during our visit. Although there...More
