We had a family lunch a couple of days ago and it was great. The food might have taken a little longer than usual to arrive but was worth the wait. It was a bistro style pub food of a very good standard but what surprised me most was the excellent children's menu which even had a 5oz steak, all... More

We arrived yesterday about 1.45pm after completing part of the Sandstone trail. We were greeted by a very nice member of staff who took our order for drinks. Although the back dining area was very busy we easily found a seat and spent the next few minutes browsing through the extensive menus (specials board, pie menu and the standard menu).... More

Walked in and were seated straight away after the rain called our walk off. Excellent service from friendly staff in a lovely warm traditional pub. I had the huge fish & chip meal, it was cooked to perfection, my husband had the carvery which was fresh and not like some carveries nothing was over cooked. We will be returning again,... More

My favourite eatery. Clean, friendly and tidy. The food is presented beautifully, tastes fantastic and is of a high quality. The front of house staff are so friendly, efficiently and helpful. The atmosphere is brilliant and plenty going on. To top it off, best carvery for miles - must try!

Trying to email the pre-order, the server wether mine or the BP bounced the email back. Not an issue spoke to a great gentleman who had taken my pre-order.... More

So sorry to read your report it is quite obvious that on this occassion we seem to have crossed wires and some confusion and lack of communication on your booking I remember taking your pre order over the phone and also receiving your e-mail so quite do not understand how we managed to get your order wrong # thank you...
