Went here late June for a meal and a couple of drinks, very friendly and helpful staff but our table was sticky from we are guessing the previous customers so asked the staff to clean it, but also the glasses and plates where both smudged like there dishwasher stopped working half way through the cycle. Nice food (I had a burger and she had the pie, both delicious) and pleaseant but probably would look to dine somewhere else next time.

Mixed feelings about this place. Nice traditional pub atmosphere. Ordered a Diet Coke it was flat and didn't really taste of much. Bar lady soon bought a replacement that was equally as bad. We both ordered roast beef. Veg and potatoes lovely, beef clearly pre cooked and pre sliced prepackaged. Yorkshire was like a brick... A pathetic portion of leeks in cheese sauce which from a presentation point of view looked awful but tasted okay.
When we came to pay the bill, I commented to the bar man about awful Coke, he came out with a load of rubbish excuses saying it was just the way it came out and I should have asked for bottled!!!!and didn't offer to refund the Coke which I thought was a bit poor. Service was good but won't return or recommend

We ate here at the weekend for a special occasion and, once again, had an excellent meal.

All of the food was of a high standard, in particular the wonderful pizza's and the homemade tapas. This was all supported by the fantastic service we received from the very friendly and helpful staff working there. We are pleased that this is now our local.

Thank you !!

I visited here a long long time ago but my, how it's changed.

Lovely atmosphere, lovely staff. Oh and the Rosies cider..... I hope it's never taken off!

Kid friendly, dog friendly and all in all a great place to chill and relax
