I ate here yesterday 19.03.17 with my Partner. We had a late lunch and were able to get a table, although not sure if we would have done if we had been 10 mins later as lots of people turned up. Service appears to be a first come first served basis - but that's fine. The pub itself is very... More

Went there on Sunday lunchtime and was extremely busy. Staff are very efficient and friendly but you cannot book a table for lunch, so you just go o to a waiting list and got the impression 20 / 30 wait but limited seating area to wait for a table....drinks we found very expensive so be prepared.

Expensive accommodation so didn't stay so cannot comment. The Bar is lovely but the service is super bad. They seemed to be miles away with no real leadership. Food was OK but nothing special.

£15 for Sunday lunch, £9 for a child I thought was a bit pricey. The meat and vegetables were good. Roast potatoes a little overdone. Lovely pint of Landlords bitter. Limited menu for kids.

My partner and I were staying locally for valentines day and had heard about this pub for brewing it's own beer. Went in for a few samples. Although expensive, we were impressed with the selection. The pub itself had a lovely atmosphere and we spent time relaxing next to the open fire. Would like to try the food next time

I visited today with my father and had cod and chips for lunch. The fish was absolutely the finest / freshest fish I have ever tasted. Cooked to perfection. My father was equally please with his smoked haddock and poached egg dish. The fire was lovely, the staff friendly. Very excited to be putting in a date in the diary... More

A tad overpriced for the size of portions. My fish and chips (beautifully cooked fish, but only one piece) was not quite an adult portion. I counted my chips; not something I usually do. i had 14, and none of them were particularly large. Attentive, polite and efficient staff and so I left a deserved generous tip. Worth visiting for...

Good pub with lovely food. Very cosy when you want to get away from the winter weather. Try the sorbet!
