A group of friends went out last week for lunch, there was a typical range of meals for a pub. We went for a range, I chose one of the specials and expected it to be good- Quiche Lorraine with salad and her by potatoes....More

Called in here for a lunchtime meal. Fisherman's pie; the mash topping had nearly dissolved into the filling. Not a lot of fish in it either. Beef in Guinness pie; also very runny and no substance to it. The veg that came with the meals...More

We had an absolutely fantastic Christmas dinner, where's the food was cooked to near perfection.. Very friendly waitstaff with a warm cosy atmosphere.. The pubside had a real wood burner and was quite cozy. We will be back over and over again.

After hearing great reviews, unfortunately we could not even finish our meals as were so dry, over cooked and re-heated food. The lady behind the bar was fantastic and so apologetic, shame the chef couldn’t show the same courteousness.

Questions & Answers
Hello, rather than leave a poor review I wanted to give you the opportunity to answer a question. My party of four popped in this lunch time having booked a table earlier and we ordered four baguettes. The service was not at all good, having to wait 50 mins and me having to ask how much longer we will be waiting for our order (one couple next to us got fed up and left). If we were time constrained this intended relaxing meal would have become much more stressful than it did as the waiting got longer. Can you tell me if you intend improving this as looking at other reviews it seems quite a problem you have. Also, do you prioritise serving reserved tables over those who come in having not booked? I must add, the food was very good indeed and I would really like to see you succeed but your in very real danger of getting a reputation for very poor service. Thank you.
