Lunch was well cooked. Tasted good but not enough of it for the money. But then that's what you get in a tourist area. Place was clean. Staff friendly. Free on site parking. Food didn't take too long to arrive.

Things have really improved in the last couple of years. The food was always pretty good but now it's served by smart youngsters who've got an idea about customer service. Some great lunch dishes, always generous portions and served quickly. We keep going back.

Dropped by for lunch after a journey up from North Wales. Great food! Had a burger, which came with delicious chunky chips. Proper chips! The burger was made from fantastic quality meat, and the ciabatta bun was fresh and soft too. Also served with a nice salad, coleslaw and relish. Beautiful and idilic location, and the pub is just as... More

We were staying in the area and wanted an evening meal. We popped in on the off chance as we had only just arrived in the area. We were seen to immediately and seated next to one of the windows looking out over a fantastic view. My wife had the steak and ale pie, my son had chicken fajitas and... More

We called in for lunch when passing as we hadn't been there for maybe 20 years. Went for the 2 course option. Food and service were good. The only thing that lets it down are the number of flies, we counted 10 on one window. Highlighted this to be told "There is nothing we can do about them".
