So it's a standard pub made to feel like a old treasure .. but in reality it is just a theme. On the plus side the staff were great, the bar man was attentive and they seemed to manage the place well.

Booked for family of 10 ( incl 3 kids) for Easter Sunday. Good selection on menu both roasts & others , plus kids menu. Very attentive & friendly service from waitress. Very full after main course but chose great option of coffee & small pudding for dessert- delicious pecan pie. Would recommend. ☺

Thankfully The Walton Fox was across the road to save our evening, with an excellent meal and great service especially... More

Went on the opening night after the refurbishment. The place looked amazing. The food was beautiful. I had the blacksticks fondue and a pizza. I know the rest of my family loved it too. My MIL was almost licking her plate clean.

I visited for the first time this week and have to say I was more than impressed with the level of service and the quality of the food, I had the chicken and mushroom pizza which is definitely worth a return visit for.
