Came here to celebrate a new job - what a cosy and romantic place! Beautifully furnished and such a nice experience on a winters evening thanks to the open fires. Staff were most attentive regardless of the full restaurant and were happy to recommend the specials board. Gastro pub and therefore on the pricier side, but this is to be... More

We live locally and have seen the many changes made to this restaurant over the last few years. I can honestly say this is the best it's ever been. The staff are friendly and the place seems to be a lot more organised with defined eating and bar areas. The bar allows dogs which is great after a long walk.... More

Had a wonderful Sunday meal here for our son-in-law's birthday. Very impressive with the pub/restaurant and the staff so welcoming and friendly. So much choice but wanted a Sunday roast which I had - it was delicious. Can't recommend this place enough and look forward to another visit soon

We hadn't booked a table (thinking it wouldn't be very busy on a Thursday night) and arrived at 6pm for our meal. It's a good job we decided to go fairly early as the pub soon filled up. We took advantage of the 2for1 pizza offer and were soooo impressed! The pizzas were with us within 10 minutes and we... More

We came on an impromptu diner out as it was such a lovely day. We wanted to eat outside. We found ourselves a table outside and met some friends so sat chatting for a while. When we went in to get menus as no one had brought us any we were told we couldn't eat outside, even though everyone around... More

Very helpful & knowledgeable service with special requests no problem. Perfectly cooked and served to unique requirements of party of 3. Steak exactly as requested, tender and flavourful plus sides. Duck breast exceptional. Nice friendly atmosphere. Timing must meet charcoal replacement between 4 & 5 pm.

Me and my partner visited today for a birthday lunch. We had provisionally booked for 14.30 but turned up at 1pm and asked if we could be seated sooner. The gentleman was so accomodating and had a table for us straight away. We had a lovely table in the corner nice which was nice and relaxing with plenty of room.... More

Booked for Mothering Sunday dinner with low expectations. From previous experience at other restaurants on this particular day we have always been disappointed because they are normally overbooked and levels of service tend to fall short. However, we were pleasantly surprised. Although there were still quite a few families with young children when we arrived, which you would expect, our... More

I went here for a last minute mid-week dinner just for a change and I really wished I hadn't bothered. Whilst the young lady serving did her best she was clearly pushed even though there were not many diners at 6.30pm. I ordered a dish which, unwittingly, i hadn't spotted came with mash potato. I ordered a side of new... More

We were in the neighbourhood and stopped here for a meal on Sunday evening. There was no problem in getting a table. The pub itself is very quaint with old world charm and low beams . All of the staff we encountered were extremely friendly and helpful. We both decided on the roast beef and what a treat it was... More
