The renovated restaurant looks very good but unfortunately management is not paying attention where it matters -- the kitchen. We were there for over an hour. It took all of that time before the table of four on our left were finally served as we left. The table of 10 on our right were settled in with drinks when we got there, but still had not received any food well over an hour later! And yes they were looking ... woebegone.
My duck was overcooked, dry and tough.
The kitchen seemed a bad combination of under-resourced, inexperienced, incompetent. Will not be back!

Just had a drink or two there. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Great house wines. Just a great pub in a traditional sense. We really felt at home.

We are regulars and booked on line or so we thought for a proper sit down sunday lunch ...when we went downstairs however staff denied very curtly any record of our booking and told us we should have called to book no efforts made to try to fit us in ...after we ended up perched upstairs an email fantastically arrived saying they were full ...odd if they didnt get our email from two days earlier they had the address ..piss poor as we say in the old country ... pity as the food is v decent ...

Almost our local for donkey's years. Luckily it hasn't changed much and is the same pleasant non-twanky environment that is as reliable as ever. Pleasant decor, numerous options for drinking or eating situations (different bars, rooms etc). Food excellent, loos very good, parking possibly a problem at weekends. Nice to know its there and familiar. Please don't change!

We were hungry for British meat pies. Many pubs didn't have them on the menu. This pub did, so we went. Excellent. Can't say enough good about the food, service and atmosphere. Friendly people, huge, flaky crusted beef/veg pies and shoestring potatoes perfectly made. Individual salads are huge, should have shared just one. Super place.
