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.

My daughter and her husband chose this venue for their wedding reception. We hired the function room , which we were told could accommodate 70. Although there were so many people standing and it was pretty cramped which was a shame. We didn't quite have 70 people there as a lot of people couldn't come along. The staff were helpful...

We stayed here for a weekend, the pub has 5 bedrooms which were very clean and comfort, although it is on a busy road so if you are a lighter sleeper I would ask for a bedroom at the back. The staff were so helpful and friendly, the food was delicious and I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

We visited here for a last minute lunch and we were very pleased with both the food and service. The restaurant was quiet and we were able to chose our own table. The waitress was very pleasant and attentive without rushing us along. Food was very tasty and nice and hot - I recommend the mushroom with Stilton on toast...

Met up in this friendly pub on Friday night and the food they gave us all was excellent , I had grilled chicken with bacon topped with blue cheese. It nicely presented and good value. I must say it was one of the best (if not the best) pub food I have had in a very long time - congratulations...
