Enjoyed our visit to this restaurant, although probably not enough to go back. It's has a cosy pub in the hills atmosphere, but could use some updating and better house keeping. It was quite full the evening we went, and we had a long wait for our meals. The staff were friendly and the food was fine - nothing wrong... More

Have eaten here a lot, as it is our local watering hole. A lot of the regular meals are quite good, if you're feeling like a steak, parmigiana, etc. Then occasionally the specials board have some really nice food too. However, there are some meals that have been a real miss. In particular was an over cooked pasta dish I... More

A good dining experience overlooking the running stream at the back of the beer garden - heaps of pub artifacts to look at with a fireplace which makes it super cosy and creates a good atmosphere

This is a funny little pub. Overpriced food and sometimes slow service, But the drinks are fair. It's a great layout, in that there are lots of different sections to set up camp. Quiet, dark corner? Window seat? A seat at a barrel? Beer garden? They've got it all covered. The staff are nice, and it's really family friendly. Tuesday... More

Bangers and mash. Three HUGE pork sausages made with meat, no fillers or breadcrumbs, served with a goodly portion,of mash and peas. A real working man's size portion. I never made it to the third assuage. The platefuls in the rest of the party bore out the size of portion was normal. Cheery staff and a lovely setting with a... More

This is a charming place, both inside on cooler days and nights and outside on warmer afternoons and evenings. Enough choice on the menu to please everyone and a good selection of beers bottled and on tap

Great pub food not too big, at great price- including the drinks. Classic English pub: could think you are in the Cotswolds!

Stopped in Sat arvo for a drink most impressed and then returned for dinner that night. Need to book as the place filled quite fast. Fantastic feed suggest go hungry as the meals are very generous and delicious. Live music was a bonus.
