Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I would agree that our décor and building is looking quite tired, and it is something that we are looking at improving. The outside area is fantastic for the children to play. Why not come and give us a try in the summer especially when the cricket is on... More

Service good - Janine in particular very attentive and helpful to colleagues - Prawn cocktail starter a bit bland with just lettuce as an accompaniment, lamb roasts very good, rump & gammon ( meat good but lacked decent accompaniments).

I haven't been here for years & a friend recommended it so me & my wife gave it a go on a Sunday.Well we were very disappointed the service was chaotic,tables were dirty & the place felt grubby! and the food was very average with small portions the cost of the meal was very cheap but this is probably why!

Lovely pub/restaurant, lovely attentive staff but the food leaves a lot to be desired. Last two times we've been we've had to send meals back for not being cooked and cold and both times the meals that came back weren't much better. On the plus side we did get a free sweet and wine but a nicely cooked hot main... More

I do agree that a nicely cooked hot meal is definitely the way forward. And I am working very hard with the kitchen team to deal with these issues as they should not be happening. I am glad that the team have been looking after you, and I assure you I am doing everything to prevent the cold meals. Thank... More

Visited 28/10 with family including two young granddaughters. Staff were really friendly and bought round a trick or treat bucket for the kids to dip in for sweets. Have to say food was pretty average and not as nice as we hoped. We were asked if wanted dessert. We said yes but could we have couple minutes to decide. Half... More

Went for Sunday lunch as a family - we didn't book, but after about a 20 minutes wait, we were seated, served quickly, and the food was with us about 20 minutes later. We ordered the 2 for 1 from the specials board, and I have to say, the food was excellent. 2 quality meals for £15, surely no one... More

This pub is in a lovey rural setting. Unfortunately the quality and value of the meals let it down. I ordered a well done steak that was at best medium rare when it arrived. It was taken back and came back well done after approx 5-10 mins, but when you are dining out with family and paying for the privilege,... More
