My mates and I came here on Sunday for breakfast before going to a classic car show. This was my 1st time here. I ordered a Sausage & Egg bap and a large coffee which came to just over £4. The bap came with 2 sausages and 1 runny egg. It was made fresh and served hot. Would recommend.

I have visited this pub on a number of occasions. I last visited a couple of weeks ago for my daughters birthday. As always the food was great with a nice relaxed atmosphere. The menu has changed slightly and although still nice the Surf and Turf has not been changed for the better. They now have sloppy fried onions instead... More

Thank you, for the lovely feedback. There are two surf and turfs on the menu. The ultimate one is served with the peas and onion rings and the regular served with fried onions. If you would prefer the regular one with onion rings and peas just ask and we can swap some if the items if the dish. More

Had a lovely meal with my husband and son. We all had steak that was cooked how we wanted it and was lovely. I had chocolate fudge cake for dessert and it was amazing, never seen such a big bit of cake for one person. Prices where good. Will definitely go again.

27 of us had booked lunch for a family get-together. I was expecting average food and service but it turned out to be great food (at a great price) and excellent service. Very friendly and courteous staff. Good choice of food and it was all well presented and consumed with no complaints :-) I would definitely return in the future.

went for lunch with a group of friends and it is most certainly the last time I'd ever go to this place. Its dark, depressing, food is horrible, overcooked, stale and staff are miserable, unfriendly and unwelcoming!

We had heard stories and were ready to be disappointed and we were; there was no 'humble pie' on the menu! We were in a party of 15, all of whom were well pleased with the service (prompt and friendly), the food (Imaginative combinations in generous portions, fresh and hot) and the price (about half what we had paid recently...

To be honest I would classify myself as a bit of a food snob and the thought of going to a chain pub for lunch isn't something I often do, preferring the country pub menus, however after some discussion with my wife asking- if I would prefer to clean out the loft or go for a quick lunch at the...
