We had a lovely meal with good choices on the menu; for us especially choosing the granny portion which was still more than adequate! At the time we visited there were plenty of seats, some in a lovely conservatory. There is also a really nice garden, which I'm sure is enjoyed by families. Staff really helpful. Parking available

Having visited this pub a number of years ago didnt know what to expect . Seemed fairly busy . Quite a big menu but over priced for pub grub. Food was ok but nothing special. Delicious ice cream sundae though.

Good food and friendly atmosphere with good staff, affordable dishes and quickly service. It is a good family pub as caters for all ages It is not up market but very honest venue and easy to stay. The food speaks for itself and serves man size food.
