Nice rural pub with plenty of parking. Food served all day. Plenty of choice on the menu plus good daily specials. Love the log fire in the colder months.

Food is really good, Chicken Parmo, excellent, best i have had any where, bar gets busy for bar meals, as so popular, restaurant serves the same food and the price is the same but book a table as also is very popular. Staff are great.
Also great for just a drink and a chill out, nice in the cold weather when both fires are lit.

Visited on previous occasions for evening meals and Saturday lunch and all ways been very happy, so decided to try Sunday lunch as our usual place was booked up. What a disappointment it was Yorkshire puds not cooked properly still soggy roasties not crispy, the mash tasted like Pom ( instant mash) it was a real disappointment, never to go again

A group of us from work went on a Friday to celebrate a long service. We hadn't booked a table but managed to get one with no problem.

We ordered and the food came quickly, it was all lovely and served by really polite staff.

Everything was going great until a woman with two male companions asked how long we would be as she wanted her usual table. We said we didn't know to which she replied that it had better be f-ing quick. We ignored her and carried on eating but we interrupted several times by various men asking us to hurry up. It was obvious that they were all regulars as they seemed to know the bar staff very well.

We finally finished eating and ordered more drinks which was met with copious amounts of swearing from the group who were now feeling the effects of the alcohol they had been consuming.

We all decided to ignore them and eventually they got the message we were not moving and moved away from us.

This was the first time we had been and although the food is excellent we wouldn't choose it as a venue for future celebrations due to the rudeness of the other customers.

Hi, thanks for the review and I'm very sorry to hear about your experience in our pub. Can you please email on a.neil@me.com the date and time your party was in and also where you were sitting as I am desperate to get to the bottom of this.

Again, I am very sorry to hear about your negative experience,
