Visited tonight with friends, no starter, had the chilli can carne main meal. Nothing chilli about it, it was totally bland & virtually tasteless, the addition of sliced raw red onion rings chucked on top did nothing to add any flavour. It was literally just dry, crumbly, lumpy blobs of tasteless mince dumped on top of dry, equally flavourless rice.... More

This is a lovely pub and can be a nice place for the family, but avoid after 6pm on a Friday or Saturday as it becomes full of very loud and sometimes very drunk young people. Not great to have the kids around. One evening I went with a friend and we had to ask the landlord to remove an... More

Warm, friendly, good food and excellent service. We visit often, in fact it is our favourite pub in the area. The atmosphere is lovely and the staff are always very helpful.

Whether we've eaten here on a weekend, evening or midweek lunch the device and food is always consistent. Really nice atmosphere. There is also a lovely outside area which has recently been redone. Good prices too.

Had previously enjoyed an evening meal here. Now visited for Sunday lunch. We were a party of 10. The roasts were a choice of lamb shank, turkey and beef. There was plenty of choice for those not wanting a traditional Sunday lunch. All of our party enjoyed the food. Service was very good.

Arrived just after 6 o’clock on a Saturday and managed to find a table in the bar area for the two of us. Our food arrived after 30 minutes, I had the curry burger and my partner had the pork ribs, both dishes were extremely tasty. Recent visits to other Hall and Woodhouse establishments in the local area have left... More

Nice pub, free wifi but food average really. Ate her a few times over the years whilst in the area on business, more out of convenience really. Some food items better than others but overall not a bad place.

We have visited this pub several times and have always found the staff friendly. There's a good choice of beers and the menu is always varied and the food is always tasty. It's a pub we definitely recommend.

Service not great but polite, fish pie pastry was soggy & raw looking, mash was grey but tasted OK. My son's burger was nicely presented.
