We visited this pub last year and planned to eat and drink here again as we were impressed last year. We weren’t disappointed as the good and service was excellent again.

From the outside the restaurant looks tidy with a menu appealing to most families. Surprised at the price of the drinks firstly and then waited for 50 mins for our meal, by this time we were getting hungry, food came and portions small (you know, the chips in a mug trick) and my fish was thin (so thin that its cooking made it quite rubbery). The kids had burgers, the youngest is 12 and was still 'peckish' at the end of the meal. In brief, expensive, small portions, poor quality and a long wait for food - I'd strongly advise going elsewhere

Would never go again, when husband went to bar to order bar staff less than friendly , we selected the turkey roast and pork roast , menu stated stuffing ( none) with the turkey , crackling ( none) with the pork , mixed vegetables ? Broccoli and a couple ( being generous there ) strands of cabbage , requested apple sauce ( when asked if there was anything else required) didn't come back ~ the gravy was good hence the 1 star , be warned

Went with friends on a Saturday afternoon with friend's sat in beer garden which was great. Good choice of drinks I am lager drinker but they had 5 lagers on tap which was great. Highly recomend to anyone who wants a drink in a nice environment.
