Decent enough meal. All had roast lunch & all meat choices were tasty & tender if a bit limited on meat portion size. Had to return first desert of apple crumble as it was served lukewarm. It was changed & the next one was hot although by then the rest of the party had all finished their deserts.

Both bar and restaurant service was slow and poor. Main course poor. Plenty to improve on. Two sweets were o.k but third sweet, profiterols were bought in with what we thought to be squirt cream. Will be a while before we return.

My husband and I arrived at 1pm for lunch with 6 friends. We had booked a table, there was a good selection of meals and they were not overpriced. The food was very good and the staff were very friendly. I would certainly visit there again.

We have eaten here many times, the staff are always helpful. The roast is very acceptable. But I would recommend the liver and unions with mash and peas (my personal favorite) The ale is always on song.

Acceptable pub lunch with nice staff and wide selection of real ales. The prices are reasonable. Big suggestion: have a small portion of food as they give huge platefuls

An excellent sunday roast dinner when you can actually choose the size of your plate, small or large. The small is always enough for me but of course on the large plate you naturally get more meat. there are always several meats to choose from , beef , turkey , pork and lamb. The lamb is always delicious, soft and... More

We visited on a Sunday lunchtime. We hadn't booked & there was 4 of us. The lady who was extremely polite advised us there would be a 15/20 minute delay as they were very busy. We were led to a lovely decorated dining area, very light & fresh. The staff were so attentive & the food was absolutely delicious! Fantastic... More

We really enjoyed our lunch and found it really good value for money. The cost of a bottle of wine was very reasonable too. Would highly recommend it.

This is a traditional village pub which has a restaurant area and does very good, simple food, that is cooked fresh to order.

The bar area has recently been refurbished to a high standard, and an extension has created an additional dining area which is disabled friendly.
