Had really enjoyed Sunday lunch here a couple of years ago, it was really quality food. When we returned this week for a belated birthday meal my burger was big & tasty but I couldn't eat many of the chips as they were so hard...& sharp. My husband felt the same; his liver & bacon was great but then the chips spoilt it. My father in law's lasagne was very homemade & meaty & came with garlic bread and salad & he enjoyed it but our son's linguine pasta with prawns was too creamy for his taste & didn't come with anything so he wasn't very happy. Overall it was average due to the chips being nearly inedible, a shame as it could be great.More

Well, where do I start? Me and a few friends rode our horses down to the pub, which we have done several times over the last few months and spent quite a lot of money. Majority of the staff love the horses and always make...us feel extremely welcome. However, the woman in charge tonight, called Tyler, refused to serve us and stated horses were banned from the premises. Not only did she make us feel very unwelcome she did this in front of the whole pub, which might I say, made us very embarrassed as we have never had a problem before. She said someone had come previously with horses and left their poo, which their poo contains grass and hay which grows naturally. We will never ever be returning and will be telling everyone in the area how we have been treated.More

In mid August we had a wonderful Sunday lunch here. A three meat roast, a roast beef roast, a child’s Sunday lunch and some vegetarian roast dinners. All cooked beautifully and served by friendly and efficient staff.

Good food, efficient & happy serving staff. Good menu. Feels safe after COVID-19 restrictions have stopped us all eating out. Always enjoy eating here. Good to be back.

The staff were so friendly. One of the best places I have been for service. I have a food intolerance and they were so helpful regarding this, along with the chef. The food was lovely. The interior of the pub is nice and clean. Would...definitely go back and highly recommendMore

Had not visited this lovely gastro pub since late 2018. Superb food, vegan friendly, beautifully presented and great service. Went last night for dinner, as it was my birthday. Superb atmosphere. Holly the manageress is really a fantastic host, ensuring that customers are well taken...care of. She is so welcoming and caring. Thank you for a memorable evening and will be back soon. Do book though- did so online and was very easy. It is very popular.More
