The lower had recently undergone a change of management but any concerns about how we would be catered for were soon dispelled. Ollie was a tremendous host. There were ten in our party for a christmas dinner. We were allocated a cosy room on the right to ourselves with a roaring fire and xmas decorations. It was a recently refurbished... More

After waiting for 10 minutes in the bar area with nobody asking us if we needed any help, we were eventually pointed to a table and then LEFT for another 30 minutes without menus or any kind of service. I eventually... More

Booked a table on a busy Christmas party night but the staff were really attentive, paying attention not to neglect us! The pie we wanted was sold out but we got offered an alternative that was made for the party and because it was already made a very generous reduction was made to our bill. Really fantastic service and fantastic... More
