The local beer with a citrus flavour was awesome and I loved it. The dinner menu was Middle East with lamb Kofta and chicken shawarma. The portion size was just right and the food was nice. This is a nice pub with friendly services.

The roasts are huge and delicious, and we were treated to live keyboard/singing too service was quite slow but they were apologetic and it was worth the wait lot's of families

The perfect Sunday Roast. Succulent Pork belly, great selection of veg, Yorkie, stuffing and 3 delicious roasties. Nice touch that the gravy matched the meat selection. Extra cauliflower cheese and pigs in blankets went down a treat. Stuffed and incredibly satisfied feeling post dinner. Can't...More

Have visited this pub on a number of occasions. On most recent visit on a Friday evening the place felt more like a creche with lots of children running around whilst their parents enjoyed a drink. My husband and I stayed for one drink and...More

We enjoyed our roast lunch here today but the kitchen was obviously stretched and the service for our main course (45 mins) and pudding (30 mins) was very slow. We did find the meat a bit tough and one pudding order was wrong but the...More
