Excellent food and service at this local popular pub restaurant We come here for the great food and well kept ales, plus a selection of fine whiskies. Nothing is too much trouble and they are always willing to oblige. We have to remember to book early to avoid disappointment.

Called for lunch recently with friends and had the pleasant restaurant to ourselves. A little chilly when we arrived, but luckily, the sun streaming through the windows warmed the place up, and we had a peaceful meal. The menu was extensive and the food was excellent. The landlady was extremely friendly and helpful. Parked the car right outside , so... More

We visited here during our visit to Branston Hall, the restaurant there is a la carte and not our thing. We walked into the pub just as the food was finishing being served but we were still able to order and thoroughly enjoyed our meals Friendly stiff, lots of locals bantering which was amusing to hear Recommended

Nice atmosphere but the back of the pub is littered and messy, and the garden is unkempt, tables falling apart, dog mess in the grass etc. needs some TLC.....

The pub serves good food although the standard of service is erratic. The waitress forgot about our group and we had to ask for menus. The food Shen it came was good however the lack of baby changing facilities means it is not a mother and child friendly pub.

The menu is extensive, which could be a bad thing, but not in this case: the food was delicious and there were quite a few vegetarian options. The service was a lot more quick and efficient than some pricier places I've been to. And, most importantly, it wasn't expensive. Great value for money.

Thank Louise W
