Bland cold food, slow service, Rude staff. Avoid this pub! Cash and Carry style food. Waited over an hour for our food, and the pub was empty. When it was served it was cold and bland. AVOID

We decided to pop in for a drink as this is our local however I thought the prices were horrendous we had 2 drinks £8:80. I nearly fell over. So only had the one and left. Very expensive on drinks but food is fantastic.

I came here with a group of 3. It wasn't hugely busy but the bar area had slightly more people. We were seated quickly, despite arriving early for our booked table, and drinks came over quickly. Our order was taken quickly, however, we had to...More

If you eat meat then you'll have no problem. If your vegetarian it's different however most times I've been the staff have not really understood what on the menu is vegetarian or not... Thankfully after speaking to the chef they generally come back saying what...More

The food choice may not be a lot but taste good. Been there few times and absolutely love the service. After food it's always better to have few drinks on a fine day and a nice path for a small walk and if you lucky...More
