Went with the family, nice atmosphere and steadily busy for early in the week. Service was pleasant (though it was quite slow). Food was good value for money, good portion sizes, nicely presented and it tasted great.

No matter how busy it is on a Sunday, food is always served piping hot; great waiting on staff who always serve with a smile and a great selection of real ale. This Sunday was no exception absolute quality. You can't go wrong with the Rifleman; an absolute hidden gem.

I had not been to this pub for a meal for some considerable time. And it was a bit of a gamble for me to suggest it to the company that I was with. But I was so happy that the gamble payed off, because the food was absolutely bang on! The food came out on piping hot plates. All... More
