Very friendly service. Really pleased we booked in advance as they were full. The starters were quite expensive but the rump steak meal I had was very reasonably priced. Wished I had ordered the sticky toffee pudding like 3 of my friends as it was so good. My husband liked the beer options.

We were given a friendly welcome on arrival, and my gin and tonic was delicious. The menu was extensive, posing quite a tough decision. I had soup and duck and my husband had whitebait and steak. We could not fault our food, or the atmosphere. It was great to see the pub so busy, testament to the food and service!

We met here for a family lunch for 5. The board in the carpark explained it all - 'fully booked - reservations only'. We weren't disappointed by the level of service and the quality of the food and size of portions. 3 roast beef , one nut roast and one seafood platter which was enormous. My daughter did say the...

We held one of our regular family get togethers, at this lovely old pub, last Sunday. We were probably their most awkward clients as an accident on the way meant that half the party was delayed by an hour. Despite the fact that they were fully booked, the staff were terrific and we did not feel pressured at all. I... More

This place is one of the oldest pub and very cosy and warm . The food top level and prices very reasonable. The service is very good and valorise the work of the Chef. This pub-restaurant is already well known but it very justified !

Visited here with my grandparents and we had to wait 30 minutes for our starter. I appreciate that they were very busy (Sunday lunch) but I was disappointed that they didn't inform us that there would be a hold up with the food. When the mains came out they were very tasty, I had the roast lamb and it was... More
