Log fires are very welcoming on a cold wet winter night, the establishment has a bar that is nice for a pint and I notice that dogs are admitted to that bar. Food is well cooked staff are pleasant and helpful but service could be slow if the pub was busy.

Food is excellent served by very pleasant staff. The steak is especially good and served with salad or vegetables and home made chips which is quite... More

I'd been wanting to go here for a long time but wished I'd never bothered. The young lady who served us was great to be fair but her male colleague was not. I ordered soup as a starter and it was awful. Jellified almost like baby food. My partner's starter was not very hot. When the main came the mash... More

Stumbled across this place and it's absolutely lovely from the outside and beautiful within! The food was delicious, can't fault anything! Staff very friendly and nice, food came out in good time and all perfectly cooked. Will definitely be back if we're in the area... just wish we lived closer!

My spinach, leek and Brie quiche was dry, no taste, portion was also very small, my chips were dried up and the red cabbage was nearly black in colour. For the price I paid for thiis meal was far too expensive. My husband had the enchilada from the specials board and the difference was unbelievable. I was most definitely disappointed.
