Just sampled the taster food for the new menu and highly recommend every dish. Personally I would have the black pearl scallops to start, steak & mushroom pie or wagyu burger as the main and for desert we loved the raspberry milkshake cheesecake. Staff were very friendly, the atmosphere was pleasant with a mixed variety of people and the place looks refreshed and cosy. Highly recommended. Thank you and look forward to seeing you again.

Having not been to this pub for a good few years after a poor experience, I booked earlier this week to give it a try for Easter Sunday. I wasn’t expecting much to be honest, but I was very wrong! Having just had a refurb, it was welcoming and friendly on arrival and fairly busy (a good sign in my book). The roast was one of the best I have ever had in a restaurant. Vegetables cooked nicely and a good size portion - neither too small or an overloaded plate. There is clearly a very good chef/kitchen team there. However what made it for us was the staff and especially our waitress Erin. A young lady (18 years old) who clearly have a smart and mature head on her shoulders; friendly, efficient and with high standards. I will certainly be going back and hope Erin is still there as she’s a true asset to the company. A lovely lunch had by all.
