The pie of the day was served with rock hard pastry and there wasn't enough sauce in the pie although the filling was good. The vegetable port was meagre and overcooked. The staff took no interest in our complaint and overcharged me on the bill.

This pub doesn't suit the area looks too refined and upmarket. It will cost a lot of money and don't guarantee great food either.

Went on a Wednesday with collegues. Service was very slow, despite it being half empty. I had the mixed grill, chicken was cooked but cold, steak was supposed to be medium rare (and it was on the inside) but Ive never had medium rare steak that was crunchy on the outside. One of our party had the gormet burger which... More

Four of us went here a week ago having never been before. It's just off the main High Street so easy to find. Liked the layout, alcoves here and there. Two of us had the fish and chips, one the huge belly pork and I had the cheese burger. All of us agreed the food was excellent, the staff attentive.... More

Very friendly pub. A bit pricey though so be prepared for a large bar bill if in a group buying rounds!! Apart from that worth a visit.

This is a great little pub that serves gastro standard food. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They always have specials on including a 2 for 1from the grill on Mondays and let me tell you the steaks are yummy. This place has a strong customer base so always advisable to call and book.

Love eating here as the food is always great. Lovely waiting staff but have been unlucky a few times to be served by the owner. Whether it's because we are not locals we don't know but she has never been friendly or welcoming. This puts a real dampener on what would otherwise be a great eating experience. We eat out... More
