We got caught out cycling in the rain and stopped here for lunch. Lovely warm atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent service. The best ham, egg and chips I've ever had. Washed down with a pint it was a perfect stop.

Went for meal on a Friday night and the place was fairly empty except for a few odd couples. The food was cooked from frozen, chips were soggy and overall the meal was very poor. Decor in the bar looked 30 years out of dare....More

We booked a group of 21 people into the pub conservatory area for a sunday meal. It went seamlessly thanks to pre-ordering and the pub's efficiency. Highly recommended for such a big group.

Thanks for your review and we are delighted you both enjoyed your visit. We look forward to seeing you again soon! Just to clarify, we don't really call them "chips", we say "handcut chunky fries" which is what they are..deepfried handcut potatoes, fresh! And delicious!
