Please note we may need to vary our opening hours and food service times given the time of year and the unpredictable nature of our Great British weather! To get the most up-to-date notices on our re-opening, keep an eye on our Facebook page. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Worst Sunday lunch we have EVER had!!!!! The mozzarella and cheddar bites were greasy and you could taste that the oil they were fried in was old. We had to request cutlery, serviettes and condiments. The Sunday lunch itself was inedible; very little meat, the...Yorkshire pudding was like cardboard, you could have played squash with the stuffing ball, the roast potatoes were greasy yet didn't appear to have been roasted very much......and we didn't bother with the rest!!!! Incredibly over priced, £41.00 totally wasted on inedible food. Will never visit this place again.More

We are a dog friendly pub, all we ask is that they are kept on a lead. If we have loud live music on we would ask that you keep the dogs to the heated outdoor areas.
