My husband and I ate here at the weekend. We used to go regular many years ago but hadn't been for a while.

The decor had changed and was really lovely. We were spoken to straight away and seen to our seat and ordered drinks that came pretty quickly.

Our waitress was Sophie, she was lovely and really on the ball throughout our meal, kept checking we were ok and whether our food was to. We even noticed another table have an issue with their food and the way they handled and rectified the situation was so professional, it really showed how much this restaurant cares.

We will absolutely be back, the food was amazing but it was the service that we passed comment about. We'll be celebrating a few big birthdays soon and will definitely be considering spending one here.

Thank you for a lovely experience.

Really nice Sunday lunch, good service and tasty food. I had the slow cooked lamb shoulder which was good and really liked my sticky toffee pudding desert, food was well presented and good kids meal choice. Victoria was really helpful and accommodating.

Had a really nice lunch with good food and pleasant friendly, staff. Would liked to have stayed for a dessert but meal was completely ruined when a couple arrived with a dog which was allowed to sit on a fabric chair close to us. The dog was given a chew which he ate and salivated over, on the chair and at one point sat up with his front paws on the table. A member of staff brought the people drinks and food to their table without ever commenting on this obvious breach in health regulations so we paid up and left.
As an animal lover who has previously owned dogs I do not have a problem with them being in the pub/restaurant, but not sat on chairs at the table!

Hi,

We are glad you enjoyed your food and the service you received on your recent visit.

We apologise that you were put off by dogs being on the chair. We are a dog friendly pub however the care of the dog is down to the owner. Usually if we notice anything like this we will speak to the owner however on this occasion we didn’t and for that we apologise.

If you would like to discuss this further please call us on 01543481217

Kind Regards

Always use this pub as venue for special occasions and just for dining out. Great atmosphere and always had excellent service. Got to know regular staff, Sophie is a star, always pleasant and interested in you.

Good alternatives for guests with special dietary needs.
