Visited today for lunch, the food was outstanding! Had the pork, sesame toffee apple and black pudding starter, with steak for main. Fellow dinners had roast turkey and the tempura prawns, all amazing. The service was fab, the pub is lovely and cosy. Highly recommend....More

Service really really slow and inattentive, lamb steak like rubber, starter with black bean sauce (apparently) but not that you’d notice. 2 hours to get two courses out isn’t good enough when there are plenty of staff and the place isn’t rammed. Will be in...More
