Well, pleasant enough surroundings, apparently a very popular place and I'm told renowned for its food. Well the food was fine, the beer was fine, nothing to write home about and a bit more expensive than one would expect for average quality food. The portions were a reasonable size on the whole but I probably won't be rushing back.

Nice atmosphere and good food. Unfortunately both times we have been here the music is something out of the radio one studio on a Saturday night. Not quite the relaxing feeling it should accommodate.

Booked a table for 10, very busy time of year. Service was superb, food slightly expensive, but very edible, it arrived very quickly, despite the pub being packed and everyone choosing something different. Would definitely recommend the establishment for a good basic night out.

Very disappointed as had been recommended, had a fish special which should have had two types of fish and a tiger prawn, fish ok but no tiger prawn just three king !! prawns, in a thin sauce. the potato was unedible sadly would not go back again.

Been here a few times and the food is always lovely. Not many places make their own desserts or cook their dishes from scratch but here u are guaranteed 95% of the menu is cooked by the chefs. The pies are lovely the roast is tasty and if u can fit in a dessert go ahead!!! Lovely pub. High standard... More

Great service, plentiful portions and a nice atmosphere. The car park is a bit tight to get into/out of, but apart from that it's brilliant. A fine selection of beers too. Roast turkey, roast beef, cajun chicjen and scampi were our orders and all turned out to be lovely. The paté starter could have done with a but more bread... More

As it's my Grandad's local we always come here when we go to visit him, whether it's for dinner or just a drink. Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff members and very reasonably priced food. Also received excellent hospitality when they held his fiance's wake here a couple of years ago.
