Ordered the fish & chips, couldn't eat it due to fish being slimey and uncooked. Complained to waitress, complaint was not acknowledged, no compensation, left pub dissatisfied and £12 lighter.

It's a bit pricey, the service can sometimes be skittish, but the chef here (2016-2017) produces excellent food. There is a carpark, bit of a tight squeeze to get your car down there but plenty of spaces once you are in.

Been twice in the last week - same thing both times and I could eat it for the rest of my life! Lamb with mash and red cabbage, all perfectly cooked and presented very nicely. The waitresses are all very polite and speedy and the atmosphere in the pub is warm, cosy and welcoming. Everything a pub should be!

Serves food all day, good range of bar snacks and meals, nothing too adventurous. Service was average as was the food quality, not particularly tasty, although portions were of a good size. If you need to fill a hole in your stomach then this is OK although it is a bit pricey for the quality delivered. wouldn't be my first... More

Came for Lunchtime meal, served right away and chose the Pie of the day which was delicious, veg was a tad bit hard however, still tasty though. Girlfriend had the falafel burger and said it was a good burger, would recommend, but the chips were godly. Personally the drinks were expensive for my own wallet, but the whole experience was...

Dropped in here on a very cold wintry day in February on the off chance that there might be a table free. Luckily they very kindly squeezed us in even though it was Sunday and fully booked. The Sunday Best is good value for money - three types of meat and all the usual veggies. There's also the vegetarian nut... More

I love this pub, granted it has an air of snobbery but still has never lost that true vintage pub feel. Some staff good, others not to on the ball. Overall a nice place to relax.
