Booked with no problem, seated straight away and staff quite attentive, food and drink orders taken with relative speed but it went downhill from there, waited over 90 minutes for food, most food was good but some problems with one of the deserts, although they...More

Having enjoyed previous visits, disappointed. Two diners, one starter and two main courses. All arrived together! Specifically asked for gravy in a jug but it arrived all over food. Returned chicken and leek pie as inedible, replaced with cod and chips which was mostly batter...More

After receiving awful food and service at the back end of last year, we thought we should return to see if this place should be reinstated on our regular list of half decent places. Not wishing to tempt a situation as bad as last time...More

I went for a meal with my sister who was down for b/h weekend. Really enjoyed our food, vegetables crunchy and not overcooked and we both cleared our generous plates of food. Good table service, and excellent value for money.

Egg mayo sandwich looked like mush in cheap bread-refused to pay. The 'red cabbage coleslaw' with the pulled pork was clearly cheap shop bought coleslaw-it was horrible-I picked most of it out. The couple next to us returned their sandwiches as soon as they got...More

Popped in with some colleagues on a Monday night, place was quite quiet but we were greeted well and found a table easily. Food came quick and was well cooked and tasty as well as decently good service. All in all quite good.

Do you have a customer service charter that addresses customer complaints? E.g. If a customer (husband and wife) complained about poor value for money whereby the quality and quantity of the food was not nearly as expected would you offer them a full/part refund or dismiss it whilst suggesting they got what they paid for?
