Called in on a Friday night around 5pm. Wanted to sit outside in the sun overlooking the golf course. Lovely setting. No we had to sit near the serving hut in the shade. Only 4 out of 15 (approx) tables were occupied. Husband wanted a...bitter - no bitter - only lager. He ordered a lager but was not impressed. We should have left and not ordered. A table was vacated at the side of us and two glasses removed. Did they wipe the table, disinfect it - NO. They showed someone to that table within minutes. Another couple sat in the shade. Tables in the sun still empty. We drank up and walked through the bar only to find that they were pulling IPA and also Abbotts Ale. Husband was not happy. Did not eat there so can not comment on the food, but the standard of service and hygiene was not good.More

This was my/our first visit since the recent lockdown ended and I have to say how much myself and friends enjoyed it. Staff as always were very friendly and went out of their way to help with anything. It has been such a difficult time...for this industry and it’s important to give credit when it’s due. Thanks we will return.More

Shown to our table and given menus. Ordered drinks. After a long wait, I approached the bar and asked if we could be served please. I was told that there were only two staff on duty, one behind the bar and one waiting on tables....Meals eventually arrived but were cold. Chips were served separately but covered in salt! I am on a low salt diet due to hypertension. Surely the addition of any condiments should be at the customers request! The restaurant was not at all busy and as more customers arrived they too were complaining about the lack of service. We will not be returning.More

Booked a table for Sunday evening,looking forward to the roast sirloin of beef.Received after some time my glass of red wine only to be told no roast beef,no roast pork,only turkey which I reluctantly ordered.(Would have had white wine had I known)Wife ordered salmon on...a bed of spinach and mushrooms with buttered baby potatoes. Counted 1 piece of mushroom with the salmon but to be fair after complaining were given a side dish of mushrooms.The potatoes were not buttered but we're fried. The stuffing advertised with the turkey roast was tiny and solid and inedible for fear of damaging my teeth. Altogether not a great experience.More

Booked a table and advised that would have bikes with us and required an outside table. Went to the front door to comply with all COVID procedures. After checking in was advised that the Acting Manager would not open the back gate to allow us...to take our bikes round the back to the garden area, where we had been allocated a table. The pub's booking sheet even had a handwritten note on it saying that we needed to take bikes to rear garden, but I was still refused access. I advised that we would be unable to stay if we could not take our bikes through to the garden via the back gate or through the side door of the pub if necessary but the Acting Manager refused again. We had no bike locks with us so we left without service and went to another local eatery for lunch and a few beers. Completely unnecessary situation due to the laziness of the Acting Manager - will not be visiting again.More
