A lot of money has been spent on the décor inside and out, but the quality of the food could be better. Portions were not big, but still quite pricey. Service could be a lot better; very hit and miss. This pub isn't making the most of itself.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon, and were a little concerned to see only two other cars in the car park, enroute we had driven past two similar establishments which were too busy to bother with. Decor is pleaseant enough, though somewhat a mismatch of styles. Two roast beef lunches - beef was sparse in quantity, over cooked and chewy... More

Had to go to a family wake this week. They held it at the fox and dogs. The food was very good. Better than your average buffet fare. A party of 100 people was well catered for. Service was top notch as always. Highly recommend this pub if you want a buffet. Excellent

This once dreary pub is now bright and welcoming since becoming an Ember Inn. I've visited on numerous occasions since it's latest reincarnation and it is without doubt in the best state it's been in the 30 years I've lived here. Popped in on a Friday with my wife for a meal and a drink. She had a burger which... More
