My hard working daughters spent their cash on treating Mum to Mothers Day Meal, my girls are just 16 and 23. I did not 'voice' my complaint on that evening for fear of hurting their feelings instead opting to discreetly telling the chap behind the bar and writing my complain on reverse of the receipt offering my full contact details...

Didn't eat this sent it back, there was a huge puff of pastry and nothing of substance underneath, three tiny tiny pieces of chicken in a sauce, first time here, not impressed.

Hi, I am really sorry that you did not enjoy your chicken pie with us on your visit. This is normally one of our best selling dishes and we have very little complaints about it. Hopefully, when you sent it back the issue was dealt with and a replacement dish brought to you, staff training would be to resolve any... More

Not been for ages, but new menu appealed. It turned out reasonably well, although the Pinot Noir house red seemed a little stale. Food not too bad with reasonable portions. Staff were excellent

Great place to enjoy a light lunch, an evening meal or just a few drinks with friends.very friendly staff in a good relaxing environment. This place is family friendly and offers a very good range of food for adults and kids alike. The bar is very well stocked and a major plus is easy and safe car parking facilities.

Had lunch/early dinner on a Monday, surprised there wasn't a two courses for £10 or something similar. However what I had was excellent. Sharing starter of the baked cheese was lovely, plenty to share. Bread and celery with it. Really nice. I had the curry of the day and I have to say it was delicious. Really impressed with it....
