Always disappointing when a Local pub can't be bothered to make real food and use frozen chips and Onion rings for example we can all have those at home for 30p a portion not £4!

Great meal, warm and friendly atmosphere. The pub runs a carvery every day. Sunday is very busy and it is advisable to book. Generous portions and vast choice of vegetables. Vegetarians are well catered for with separate tasty onion gravy. Landlords are welcoming and make you feel at home straightaway. It is very well run and the food is home... More

Have been here a few times with large family group and big dog. Does a roaring trade for Sunday lunch. The landlord keeps everything moving and makes sure everyone is OK. Dog treats and water at back entrance with request for a small donation to dog charity. Plentiful portions and filling desserts. Easy journey from York and recommended for a... More

We booked a table for eight family members for lunch on a Saturday and we were easily accomodated around one table. My husband and I had visited here before on our own for a meal and thoroughly enjoyed it and so hoped we could offer a similar experience to family members. The service as before was friendly without being intrusive... More

My partner & I have been here before & eaten snacks from the menu but this time we decided to have the carvery. Soooo glad we did! It was absolutely delicious, lots of choices, not just the obligatory meats. Salmon, chicken in red wine, chicken in an Italian tomato sauce etc. There was an abundance of vegetables and even dauphinois... More

so we called last Sunday, this being our 3rd or 4th visit, the carvery is always good, (beef pork or chicken this week?) but you must book a table! look out for the leeks in cream and dauphinoise ? potatoes, yum.
