What a wonderful delightful pub. Staff very accommodating and a lovely feeling of homeliness. Food was lovely and a great portion size and a great selection on the menu. Very reasonably priced and would definitely recommend!

There was 8 of us in a party. It was very nice to be in a traditional pub and we were made very welcome and they accommodated our delayed ordering very well.. The pub was busy with a nice atmosphere. It was a standard 'pub' choice menu, but everyone enjoyed their food and all 8 commented on their dish being... More

There is no doubt that this is a nicely decorated pub which is comfortable to enjoy a pint in. However we booked for a Friday night dinner and were not impressed with the run of the mill menu. No specials on offer, just the predictable offer of lasagne to gammon. Garlic mushrooms were watery and bland, the chilli was way... More

Why make the dishes so big. You don't get quality by serving more crap food. The cheesecake was tasteless and dry and 4 inches high. The beef was ok. The coffee came eventually. It was pretty poor alround. I've worked in kitchens and restaurants. Give me an hour at this place and i'd point out everything that they can improve.

After passing this pub on many occasions we finally called in for a meal. A good welcome by the staff, not an overly large choice of beer, but staff are knowledgeable about the ones they have and let you sample them to make sure you are not dissatisfied with what you get. The menu is also brief, compared to some,... More

Came here on Saturday afternoon with my partner for a drink. The exterior looks recently done up and the colour scheme seems to be like Farrow and Ball greens and greys. The smoking area has little areas with fairy lights which looks like it would be nice in the evening. Going in, the decor inside doesn't much the outside but... More

First time we have dined here. There was four of us, food was outstanding, could not fault it, bread and butter pudding was delicious. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Would advise to book though.
