The website down and the phone disconnected! Thank you so much for not calling to advise you couldn't honour the booking (the number was left with... More

Don't know where to start. Just happened to pop in here as we were passing. Terrible service not one staff member smiled at me we were made to feel unwanted. Awful atmosphere. Extremely slow service and food cold. Asked for it to be taken back and the manageress was super rude. Never returning. I would recommend to venture elsewhere.

My Christmas was ruined after the lunch booking at the Inn was not honored. When I arrived with my wife and son we were not on the list. We were told that we had not given a deposit and had not left a contact number. Neither of these was requested during the telephone booking. Our name was correctly written in... More

One and a half hour wait for main course, no apology, rude service, poor food, avoid at all costs. One star and Terrible rating is too generous.

We had a lovely faultless family meal but my 14 year old un-streetwise son was left quite shaken after going to the gents toilets. He was met by 3 males age mid 20's, one was sniffing white powder from the raised elbow of the one of the others!!!! The lowlife scruffs hadn't even had the decency to go in a... More

The people shown in the picture aren't, I think, involved here anymore and the new team has really turned the place round. What last year was a dismal experience all round has been transformed into a very good pub to eat in. We found the service to be excellent, everyone working as a team and making sure food was delivered... More
