Visited as a group of four and were initially due to be seated inside. A quick chat with the manager and we were then placed on a table in the conservatory -no problem. It meant that we could enjoy the lovely weather whilst it lasted! Great menu with a range to suit all tastes and at sensible prices. The draught... More

Have known the pub for many years and was nice to return, but 2 hrs for a 2 course lunch is too long. Granted, it was Good Friday and busy, but still too long and not the service of bygone years. Disappointing.

Based locally and decided to take clients for a "quick" business lunch but took 45 minutes to be served our order of 2 ploughmans, a club sandwich and a fish cake!! All the food was good quality but had to rush to eat it so not really a great experience

Arrived to find that even though the booking had been received they did not have it transferred to their manual system and no table was available !! Whats the point of an on-line booking system ? Manager was not available to speak to me, I left my feedback,... More

I had heard such great things about the black jug, and this was our first time going. So I booked a table for an early dinner. The pub was extremely busy. We were served at the bar immediately, and every member of staff who passed by, asked if we were okay and being looked after. No one avoided eye contact,... More

Fab relaxed lunch guys! Thanks for your attentive service! Fish cake looked and tasted gorgeous and the spicy peppers were a great starter. Huge bowl of salad too. Will visit again

Have used this venue several times, mostly for pre or post cinema or theatre dinner. Staff always polite and helpful, atmosphere warm and vibrant, intereting menu for both food and drink. Altogether a very pleasant experience
