Came here for my sister in law's birthday meal a week ago. We had reserved a table for 8 which was all nicely laid out and waiting for us on arrival. The restaurant was busy but we were seen to almost immediately after coming through the door. The staff we had throughout the meal were attentive, and were very helpful... More

Nice relaxed surroundings, attentive staff, great menu and wine list...altogether an experience worth repeating....only drawback was lack of signage from the motorway which made us miss our stop on the bus...would not let that mar the overall experience though...very much enjoyed

Seven of us went for lunch today and left immediately after being spoken to by a rude male member of staff with a bad attitude. Our being there seemed like an inconvenience. It looked like a very nice place to eat and we'd had a pleasant hour the previous evening having drinks, but the place is spoilt by the attitude... More

A group of 7 of us went in for lunch after checking out of the Premier Inn next door. We had enjoyed a few drinks here after work the previous evening and the guy behind the bar was really lovely! Unfortunately the following day we felt unwelcome the second we stepped through the door, even sorting out a table for... More

Simple food well prepared and presented. Piping hot, tasty proper chops and lovely white fish. Nice cold draught lager to go with it. Quite reasonably priced. Nice touch is a toiletry basket in the ladies loo with hand creams and wipes, spray deodorant to use while there. Friendly and professional staff. Will definitely be back.

Varied menu of good pub food, at a reasonable price. Cosy, welcoming atmosphere. Suitable for large or small groups, including family of all ages. Quick, efficient, friendly service. Easy online booking facility.

Totally mediocre lunch. Shop bought patè was disappointing and peas had a hard shell. Used to be much better!

Breakfasts are large if required but continental sufficient for us. Evening menu varied as part of the "Chef and Brewer" group. Good value. The only warning would be that the morning toaster has a mind on it's own.
