The food at this English themed pub is good but not remarkable. The beef and venison pie special was very good but the fish, chips and salad were average. The food and beers are reasonably priced and the pub has a nice atmosphere.

This is a themed pub (faux English) which offers plenty of space inside and out for diners. Beer is standard but rather flat and, for vegetarians, the menu is restricted to salads. These are ok but some elements are rather overloaded. Cooked meals looked pretty reasonable and the fish and chips which was tried by one person was perfectly acceptable.

The 3.5 star rating of the restaurant is spot on - it provides good pub food in a nice setting, the drink list offers some good local wines.

We went there for a quick and hearty meal, and were not disappointed. We had the steak pie, some beers and wines. It was all well priced, and the portions really generous. It’s a pub, so we didn’t expect the same as we would from a restaurant. Good fare, nice selection of on tap beers, and fairly priced wine. I would go back

We booked a tale for 2 about 90 minutes before needed and it was reserved when we arrived. The sharing platter of meats, cheeses, bread crackers and dips for 2 was enormous and would be suitable as a main course. My wife had fish and chips and I had the Guiness and steak pie, both were large portions and we could not finish them with the large starter.
Suitable for children with large open air and internal dining areas.
Prices are reasonable for quality and quantity of food. It is opposite to a Motel ,where we are staying but this was fully booked
