My friend and I had a lovely lunch today thankyou. Great service from very pleasant staff, good selection of food and we were both very pleased with our choices. These days, for myself and I trust many others, Covid measures taken by establishments are a...huge part of venturing out anywhere, and we were not disappointed, everything had been taken care of, toilets spotless and smelling of bleach - all good. Wouldn’t hesitate to return or recommend.More

I only had a Nacho starter but it was tasty and a big portion! My friend had a flatbread main course and throughly enjoyed it.

We visited for the first time tonight, as we were staying on the caravan site next door. The outdoor bit was well organised and tables spaced out, we ordered via the QR code on our table and our drinks were brought out promptly. Our starters...arrived shortly afterwards and they were ok; we were 3 adults and 2 children in total and I was very disappointed at the size of the children's garlic bread (it was smaller than the palm of my hand) and the greasiness of the other child's nachos. Our main courses were brought quickly after this, the waiting staff then cleaned our starters away and they brought us salt and vinegar sachets as requested. The steak looked and tasted lovely, the other 4 meals ordered were distinctly average. If we'd been served them in a Wetherspoons, I'd be happy, however we paid £92 for this meal and the price wasn't justified. My scampi was OK, it came with a large side salad and chips and sadly most of the scampi was soaked with the balsamic vinegar off this. The child's pizza was also OK and she ate most of this. Both the adult and children's burger were dry, the bun on the child's burger was either stale or frozen and left uneaten, along with the whole of his extremely dry burger patty. The plates were collected when I was at the loo and the only comment made about our rather full plates was to question if we wanted a doggy bag. The staff and covid measures were good, the food let our visit down and I doubt we'd return if in the area again sadly.More

We visit here all the time and love it! Food is always amazing and the atmosphere is great, it is also dog friendly which is perfect! Since re opening the service has been a little slower but the quality still great and staff all wearing...masks and hand gel available. Will continue to visit as alwaysMore

Have been here a couple of times since they have reopened. Ordering is done through scanning a QR code and all feels very safe - particularly if you are eating outside. Food is decent- I’d recommend the fish and chips or the burgers - and...staff are friendly. Dog friendly pub as well.More

We went here the other week. First time since it re opened. Great to see the place back and had a few drinks which we enjoyed. Got home later and pointed out a couple of things on Facebook messenger regarding challenging people who don’t wear...masks as sign outside stated they must be worn. I got given some cop out reply and was then blocked from any further comments. I have tried to contact them by email and no reply so far.More

Ridiculous situation where you quite rightly have to book by phone first but they don't tell you while booking that you should bring a mask if you want to walk about inside the bar to toilet etc. Then when you turn up a little madam...acts all stroppy when you say you've not got a mask with you. Slow service. Ridiculous having to ask for each abs every condiment while having to estimate how many you will use. "yeah can we have 2 red sauce, one salt and 6 vinegars, and 5 peppers". Ridiculous. Food very average. Won't be back.More

Our staff are scripted when taking bookings informing everyone about masks however due to compulsory wearing in just about every other environment most people carry one at all times now! Also due to safety of our customers we do not have salt & pepper or...More
