We popped in on our way to Scotland in the very early evening and found the place almost empty. We ordered and the meal arrived and as I said it was ok but not particularly special in any way. Previous reviews had led me to believe I would be somewhat taken aback, and I was, but for the wrong reasons.... More

We nipped in for lunch and the welcome was nice and friendly. We ordered some chips and a salad. We asked for a slice of bread with no butter. They charged us £1.75 for the slice of plain white bread. It was nice enough bread, as bread goes, and it's not like we couldn't afford it - but it did... More

We arrived 2:30 to meet up with 2 friends. Sat in a booth in the main bar but there were plenty of seats (some also booths) in the restaurant area. Log burner wasn't on today but I was glad as I'm always hot - especially when eating and drinking. We only had main courses - 3 beef, I pork. All... More

Food was good, even although they had ran out of a couple of items. I would stop here again, but don't expect the Ritz.

Steak pie and chips and gammon steak with a fried egg on top along with three pints came to £20.50 along with free overnight parking in their large level car park. Food was plentiful and well cooked. A bargain we thought, staff very nice... More

Called in for a drink as we enjoy the pub but the Carling and Coors were both rotten. It was like the lines hadn't been cleaned in weeks. The barmaid changed the first pints but the second were just as bad. Also, they have the worst designed baby changing facilities I have ever seen. a fold down table over a... More
