Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Work nearby so popped in for lunch. Went for a jacket potato with cheese and coleslaw. Simple enough. Waited about 20/25 mins but didn't mind as otherwise it would have been a ping ping microwave potato which it wasn't. Mine arrived - no coleslaw! I asked the lad who brought it and he said oh we've run out ! He... More

Lovely pub with great atmosphere. Typical old style country pub, just got to love it. Food is average, drink selection is ok. That's not why we love it but the atmosphere (again...)

We have visited this pub on a couple of occasions in the past and never really been disappointed before, however yesterday was a different matter. The service was average and a little slow, but the Sunday dinner was inedible. Actually, it was the meat that was poor - the rest of the roast was fine. The lamb was fatty, we... More

After some good visits - when it's been quiet, went for a large family gathering Bank Holiday afternoon. Lack of staff but ordered expecting a wait. However after 55 min they decide to inform us they had run out of one of our orders. So how much longer would we have waited?! No manager or supervisor available to look after... More

A good old fashioned style of pub, oldie worldly which makes for a good atmosphere. Service was good but not the quickest I've had. The food was delicious, certainly no complaints! For 3 starters, 4 mains and drinks, the bill was around £80 which isn't bad considering the quality of food. The menu has a great choice, there is a... More

Not sure whether to class this as a pub or a restaurant to be honest. Some very good real ales including my fav Joseph Holts. Beer in excellent condition, just a shame the barman had absolutely no idea how to pull a pint, shirt jerky yanks meant the ale had to fight to show it's quality! The food is certainly... More

Firstly some positives - the staff were friendly, the pub is nicely decorated and in lovely surroundings, and there are good, well priced drink options. However, the food is terrible. We ordered our starters from the specials menu - some salt and pepper chicken strips. What was special about these, is they'd never actually touched salt or pepper. What we... More
