The menu isnt as extensive as it once was, and the quality of the food is okay where it used to be excellent.

If you like poor overpriced food this is the place for you, avoid like the plauge even if you have a Groupon voucher - The Hobler down the road on the other hand is excellent, spend your hard earned money there.

We took my parents here for their wedding anniversary back in September 2010. The food was OK but the whole lunch was spoiled by the young Landlord negotiating with a wine merchant two tables away from us. After half an hour of that I felt sorry for the landlord, is mum (who was doing some of the cooking), and us. I also knew an awfu lot more about mark ups, how credit works in the licensed trade, and how a pub should be laid out to maximise profit. This was interesting but not quite what we wanted. The wine merchant continually referred to the pub as a gold-mine and so it should be. Our more recent visit - for drinks - was ok.

Bought a Groupon Voucher for this pub which we hadn't visited before - worried about it afterwards as the reviews weren't brill however the food was great! The menu had good options and we had a three course meal for 4 - mostly different choices and all were cooked to perfection.
Nice old pub with good food - give it a go.

Visited lunchtime with wife and friends using a Groupon voucher offering 4 three-course meals for £38. Not a particularly warm welcome, and service throughout was very variable. Customer service training would be a good idea here.
My starter, leek and Stilton tart, was excellent, but the meal went downhill from there. The "well done" burger was burnt to a cinder, I should have sent it back. Excellent chips and perfectly adequate salad accompanied it. Dessert was, allegedly, Eton Mess, but apart from pieces of strawberry on the top, a few pieces of chewy meringue and some red sauce, it was mostly cream, so very sickly indeed.
My wife had crab ramekin, which was OK, but at £7.50 it should be! She paid an extra £5 for lemon sole, but was disappointed at both the texture and flavour of the fish. For dessert, she made the same mistake as me by ordering Eton mess.
At regular prices we would have paid well over £40 for our two meals, but thankfully the Groupon voucher halved that. However, when you have had a disappointing meal, the fact that you have saved money is no consolation at all.
One to avoid until they get their act together.
