Staff friendly and helpful. The carvery meal was OK but not hot enough,(Luke warm by half way through)... Hunters chicken tough and served with peculiar soggy chips and wrong mix of vegetables. Gents toilets need a spruce up and hand dryer out of order. One basin tap very loose and wobbly. Sorry I have to give such comments but it... More

I can't complain about the meal it was on top form. Very disappointed to hear the way management spoke to the young waitress who done a excellent job serving us all evening.

You know, I really don't like giving negative reviews but you have to be honest with readers and tell it as it is, otherwise there's no point. But I have to say, it's much harder when you've previously given a glowing review of the same restaurant and know the licensee to be extremely sociable,very friendly and welcoming, as this one...

We called in for a off the cuff lunchtime meal and to our surprise found that the carvey was on. So we both had a Monday lunch time roast and it was fantastic. Lovely country pub and friendly staff.

We often pop to this pub for a family gathering as it's so easy to get to. It also serves a delicious carvery with all the trimmings, lovely choices of meats, vegetables and sauces, and the service is great, always friendly and smiling and they always make time to come over and chat to us. Highly recommended.

The best thing about our visit today was that it was warm in the pub with a log burner going. The carvery. What a disappointment. Only two meats, roast beef and chicken pieces. I had the chicken that was greasy and the amount of meat was minimal; mainly bone. Vegetables were few, carrots, green beans and peas. Roast parsnips undercooked... More
