The pub is friendly and has some nice open fires, also nice in the summer as plenty of outside seating. I've eaten here a few times, the food is ok, some days better than others. The business park tends to use the pub quite a lot so drink prices compared with other pubs are on the higher side. They do... More

We called in to this charming pub whilst on holiday. It was excellent from the friendly staff to the delicious food. Our welcome was warm and friendly. The pub spotlessly clean and the food amazing. It was in fact faultless. Our puddings were so good. It saddened me to read a review of people moaning about people smoking out side... More

Good, hearty, pub sandwiches and decently priced. Dogs welcome in the bar area. Bigger meals available. Open fire makes it warm and cosy. Friendly staff. Toilets and fittings in there could do with some 'fixing'.

We visit here occasionally and everytime it is good. The food taste great, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. A good selection of drinks on offer. Also a great place to come on a Sunday afternoon and watch your favourite sport on the tv with a bowl of chips and a pint!

Been a year since I visited this place, last time was disappointing to say the least. This time no different, food was bloody awful, atmosphere was shocking! Will give it another year before I go again. Barton's Mill is about 3 miles from there, I'd suggest head that way!!

We popped into the pub for a beer and a quick meal early evening. The pub was very attractive inside and outside with lots of seating and a range of hand pulled beers. Service was good but the meals were only average. I had a burger which was tasty but it only came with a small number chips, so I... More

Fancied a Sunday roast lunch with the family. Most places were full. Ended up here. Food was average. Some of the veg was cold. We're fairly sure the roast potatoes were cooked from frozen. Staff seemed uninterested. We had to find one to get the bill, then the waitress came over and just read out the amount rather than give... More

Hi Nickyisgod Sorry you had a poor experience. We will look into the poor service on the day. I assure you our roasts are all freshly prepared and cooked in house, trimmings and all. I will make sure to chase up the chefs as to why items are going out not up to scratch. We would love to make this... More

It may not be the cheapest place to drink compared to town, but I can walk so save spending £20 on taxis. Friendly staff, good atmosphere, nice locals and nice outside seating. Bar staff are always great, I'll mention Tom as he is good fun and can give friendly banter while staying professional. Marlon and the team are doing a... More
