Nice venue and staff but a bit let down by the food. My daughter had some lamb on the bone thing that must have been 80% fat and I had the Steak and Ale pie which was burnt on the outside and dry on the inside so pretty disappointing. My Partner had a lamb didh that she enjoyed and the... More

We have dined at this restaurant many times. This time it was for our 40th wedding anniversary. We were a table of 18 including friends & family. The management & staff couldn't have been more helpful.

Wine and prosecco reasonably priced and there was an offer on the latter which made a bottle approximately £10. All staff were very friendly and efficient. Food presented well. A... More

The patè is delish. For main I had the fish mixed grill, good value for money, the fish was a bit over cooked and the sauce... More
