We had a very long wait over an hr before our meals came. The food was nice but the portions were very small

5 of us came here for a 70th birthday meal. We were seated in the restaurant behind the bar area and it was very nice. Right next to a large hot radiator which was lovely as it was very cold and dark outside. We all had starters and mains. All very good indeed. The service was excellent.

We went for a family birthday. The service and food was lovely. The value was very good and we signed up to Chef and Brewer and got a voucher for free starter or desert. We would certainly come back again

A very average meal with cheap food, the gammon was horrible, fatty and grisly. I usually like this pub but a bit put off this time.

We choose to come here as the food is always delicious and the staff are friendly, nothing is too much trouble. A special mention for Martin, who was an excellent host this evening, quickly sorting a bit of a mix up with a starter. A credit to you.
