We were a group of 9 dining on New Year Bank Holiday. The food and service was excellent and all were satisfied with their meal. Three of us had steak, which was cooked exactly as ordered and the accompaniments of mushrooms, tomato, peas, chips etc were delicious also. A good value meal.

A very warm welcome with friendly staff and management. The food was good and plentiful and the ambience is very relaxing and cosy. The place is buzzing, but not crowded and a delightful find.

This was our 4th visit here in the past year, conveniently it's within walking distance of where we stay. Accommodating staff & lovely food. Disappointed that the menu was the same as our last visit but that's a small criticism. Will definitely come again.

We were 4 adults and a toddler visiting at lunchtime. Scampi and chips for £5 was excellent value. The sandwiches came with chips and coleslaw and were very tasty. The children's menu seemed expensive in contrast but we just had an extra plate and she shared our meal. Service quick and friendly. Recommended.

Thanks for your review, dont forget the childrens meal also includes a colouring pad and crayons and a drink as well - perhaps its not as expensive as you thought! However I am very pleased that you enjoyed your meal and thanks for coming to see us. All the best David More

Dinner with friends, fish and chips for most of us as we fancied a lighter meal. Warm rolls to start which we lovely. Great to see that they have realised that not everyone drinks pale ale.

We ate here two nights on the trot. Very good food presented very well by excellent staff who were pleasant, professional and friendly. The beer, Adnams, was excellent. The landlord and staff were very helpful with everything. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

We went as a group of 10 for lunch, including two 90+ yearolds with walking frames, and we were not disappointed. The lunch menu had things on that were a bit above normal pub food, and very reasonably priced too. Service was great and the food excellent. The only thing I would say on the downside was that the toliet... More
