We tried 2 country pubs for late lunch on our day out but both stopped serving food at 3pm. We drove past the watermill and noticed a sign outside with food served all day, We parked in the car park and went in, there were plenty of seating areas to have food. We were then shown to a table in... More

Waited a further hour for our main course. we overheard a... More

What a good idea; not sure what you want or can't make up your mind? Then just have a bit of all of it! We booked here for Sunday lunch and having read some of the recent reviews; I was a little concerned and was prepared for the worse. The reality couldn't have been more different; the service was spot... More

Birthday celebration with family, the staff were very friendly and welcoming, the food was good value for money, good service despite being a busy bank holiday weekend, would recommend for a group of friends, family for a meal or just a drink.

Visited here today with my sisters, had the sausage and mash wouldn't recommend. On the menu it said it came with mustard mash, cranberries, deep fried sage, caramelised onions and rich gravy. It didn't come with cranberries, sage or onions. The mash was very gloopy and cold in the middle and the gravy tasted like instant granules and was also... More

The goo took a fair while to come and when it did, my 3 friends had their food and mine was nowhere to be seen. After 10 minutes when they were half finished, we asked where my meal was and it...

This was our second visit, the last one was terrible (food dripping in oil/greece) but due to its great location we returned - what a mistake. Visit started badly with irritation from waiter having requested a high chair. We were informed of a 45 minute wait but after 1 hr asked politely where food was only to be spoken to... More

After a 6 mile walk so we delighted to find this place ! Served food all day. Busy but found us a table quickly. Reasonable service. Food very average. Three kids meals ok but adults meals over heated uninspiring food. Wouldn't return except for a quick snack.
