Unfortunately trip advisor do not give you a ‘good’ option. The experience here wasn’t ‘very good’ nor was it average. It was good. Having said the above and whilst the food was indeed good and that’s what really matters, be aware of their misinterpretation of...Tier 2 rules. You cannot order a drink before you order food and you cannot have one afterwards. I think they’ve taken the legislation verbatim rather than understanding the point of it. I would even suggest that it’s financially motivated which I’m afraid also means I would not return once the restrictions finally come to an end. It is a shame.More

Food excellent; the Lebanese BBQ chicken perfectly cooked, lovely paprika chips and coleslaw. The roast beef was a huge portion with several vegetables and a large Yorkshire pud. Table service only because of lockdown. Limited choice of beer and wine, probably also due to lockdown,...but, enough to make a good choice, including a brilliant Barolo. Will definitely be back!More

Went here pre lockdown. Food was very good and service was quick. The staff took great care of us and will definitely back post lockdown. Keep up with the terrific work.

Not been before, last meal with a group of friends before lockdown! Was lovely, the food ordering took quite a while, we waited a good 30/40 minutes to have our order taken but the food was amazing. The presentation was superb. Was gutted they had...no white chocolate cheesecake, was looking to forward it all day, but the sticky toffee pudding was just as lovely. Understandably a few items on the menu were sold out, I seemed to pick everything that wasn't available, but it will only mean I need to return and have the pork belly and cheesecake on my next visit! Staff extremely friendly and polite. Fabulous visit.More

Food was amazing, restaurant was packed out so must be a very popular place! Was our first time here and would definitely go back! Just a shame they wouldn’t send me home with free white choc and ginger cheesecake as it was incredible and the...best I’ve ever had!More

Visited for the first time today and will definitely be coming back. We had lovely roast dinners (lamb and pork belly) and sticky toffee pudding. Drinks are pricey but the service is outstanding. The pub itself has been renovated beautifully and is really well organised...to suit current distancing guidelines.More

Good food, good beer, good service. What's not to like? To split a hair, the aioli that came with the excellent Whitebait could have done with a bigger garlic punch - although this is a matter of personal taste. Would happily eat here again.

Always a favorite of ours for lunch & evening meals. Friendly attractive pub with a good selection of ales & wine in comfortable surroundings. Garden area to the rear with parking but car park is on a hill so for those less sure footed or...when icy use the roads close to the pub at the front of the pub. Never been disappointed with the food as always good quality & served well. Menu includes good vegan options. A good idea to telephone ahead of time for more vegan availability. Well worth a visit.More
