Went for food , restaurant prices for pub food , found staff really couldn't be bothered, not rude but we felt as though we were being intrusive by ordering food . Food portions were very small and quality was very disappointing. Was told to sit at a certain table but the pub was empty so decided on our own choice... More

We had an ok meal with reasonable service. It's definitely better in the restaurant than the extension side. There's more atmosphere. I'd travel up the road to the Robin Hood though.

Our children booked a table for a late Mother's Day treated for the ladies of the family. The grandchildren made full use of the well equipped garden as it was a nice sunny day. Whilst waiting for their meal they were given crayons and pictures to colour in. The food was good, staff helpful and a good choice of menu.... More

Met up with family in Hampshire for a light Thursday supper. Great atmosphere, friendly staff. I had the surf and turf which was yummy, and my brother's girlfriend had the lamb shank which she highly recommended. It was a lovely spot and great grub - would highly recommend.

After a 6 mile walk my friend and I had been looking forward to hospitable service and when we arrived and ordered at the bar, we were served by a surly looking Barmaid who said had we booked a table to which we replied no we hadn't but we were going to be sitting outside. We paid for our meals... More

We visited this attractive pub for the first time last Sunday to suss it out for a party the following Saturday. We had the roast beef which was beautifully cooked, as were the vegetables. The puddings were also good - lemon sponge and apple crumble. On Saturday we went to the Golden Wedding celebration and really enjoyed our meal. We... More

I took my wife, daughters and their partners to celebrate my birthday. Warm cosy pub with excellent food, especially the T-Bone steaks. This was our third visit and best yet.

Saw good reviews, but probably wouldn't return. Food was good, but neither of us could think what we would have ordered had we returned.

Dear R F, We were pleased to read that the food at your meal was good but disappointed that you do not think there are more appealing choices on the menu to tempt you back. We are currently working on some changes and hope that we will make a menu where there is something for everyone. Kind regards. More
