A friend and I lunch here regularly. The menu is good and the food is always great. I would recommend this restaurant for lunch or dinner. On our last visit, a Friday lunchtime the restaurant was quiet the service was good and the food lovely. We will be back.

Attended for a Friday evening meal. Restaurant was full but staff very accommodating. Extensive menu but unfortunately not a lot of what was on the menu was actually available. Service was slow and we had to ask to be served several times. The food we were served was to a high standard and tasted lovely. Great food but service needs... More

Not been here in a while and a long time since I'd eaten there. The bar was quiet apart from a group who were getting ready to eat. We were advise get our order in before the group which was sound advice. Food was lovely if a little over priced for what we had. The pub is nice and a... More

We stayed here whilst visiting our niece. This is a wonderful place. Our accommodation was a very large room and very well decorated. Breakfast the next day was a delight. The staff are great and helpful. Can’t wait to go and visit our niece again and stay here.

Swift service from the outset. Presentation and taste of food was great. Starters arrived quickly and the main was delivered as they were finished. A good mix of mains, all tasted great and the meat was all cooked to taste. Dessert: fondue!! Great meal, all were bursting at the seams by the end.

Visited here for Sunday lunch with my family and was not disappointed. The staff were helpful, friendly and professional. There was a good choice of meats for lunch and they refilled the gravy pot if needed. The portions were just right and they were happy for my mum to have a child's portion as she doesn't eat very much. The... More

We've had many a meal here over the years. The food is very good & the staff are always friendly & helpful. One of the great advantages at this place for me is they have a separate gluten free menu which has a great choice of starters, mains & desserts. One member of staff I would particularly like to mention... More
