Very accommodating to my 21 month old son. Most places you play hunt the high chair, waiter bought one straight over. Ordered pate between husband and I to start. Asked for extra toast for my son and plenty came out with extra plate. Sane with mains, but extra veg, potatoes and plate for our son came out without asking. Roast... More

Had two meals here recently and enjoyed both. The menu is fair value and imaginative and quality of food was matched by great cask ale. The pub has a number of rooms and is connected to the restaurant next door. Even on a Monday night it's ticking over nicely It's a good location too, just close to the Castle

We were let down originally by another place but found this pub had a function room and could accomadate 16 people upstairs. It was very busy for a sunday lunch but the menu was extensive, we all chose a sunday roast. I thought the service would suffer as a result of being busy but it didnt, all the meals came... More

Seven of us went for an pre booked evening celebratory meal. The table was set in a corner with very little room which necessitated staff passing meals over the table as they could not access three of the table settings. The meal was very average. The staff did very well in serving in such a limited space. Will hesitate before... More

Renewed our acquaintance with this delightful pub/restaurant last Saturday afternoon and, after a few pints of the well kept Purity UBU bitter, were persuaded by the landlord to have steak and chips. A superb recommendation and one of the best steaks in a long time ! Top quality Chateauneuf du Pape to accompany; all outstanding ! And the apple pie... More

It was fine, typical pup type place, food was fine at a reasonable price, although i'd thought not enough food, i had the 6oz steak and all it came with was chips couple mushrooms and a grilled tomato, i normally do not eat grilled tomatoes.

Well kept beer,friendly service and the fish and chips were good.Think the chips are not home made which is a shame as they were slightly better than the ones we have had in the past.Always a lovely atmosphere.

Good choice of Sunday lunch food, but very limited in gluten free options. I avoided a starter, but I had Chilli con Carne for my main course. Vegetable portions were large and had a selection of firm vegetables. (I do hate mushy ones which are so often served in some restaurants). I had sorbet in the end as the options... More

Popped in on the off chance today, Sunday, due to a competitor not being open until 12 noon. What a pleasant surprise! Lovely pub charm in a cosy, friendly and very clean environment. Great service and great food. The mini fish n chips are to die for! Generally Sunday lunch is offered although there is a lighter/mini menu on the... More

This was one of the few places that would accept dogs (provided they stayed in the bar area). There was also good access for 90yr olds, either from Castle Hill - stopping on double yellow lines - or from pay and display car park (refundable) to rear. The service was excellent and I enjoyed my lunch - the restaurant having... More
