Had a great meal with friends. Food was lovely, hot , very tasteful and plenty of, even other meals seen being dished up looked amazing portions.
Our waitress Laura was very friendly. Quiet but lovely friendly atmosphere.

We parked our Motorhome in the car park and had several excellent evening meals. There was always a friendly atmosphere and good food. My wife and I will visit again.

Was not very good last time I came 2 years ago and thought I would give the benefit of change to see if things had improved.
Sadly if anything it is worse.
Food was at best average and therefore overpriced.
Service was indifferent and even after splitting the order, there was no apology.
When I paid I said that the food was decidedly average and I barely received an acknowledgement and certainly the individual showed no interest in determining the issue. I paid and left.
Barely warm food, a split order and indifferent staff delivering over priced average food means no return from this reviewer ever.
Avoid if you expect decent well priced food.

We stopped off here for coffees. The table that we chose to sit at was not clean and despite my wife asked one of the waitresses politely, if she would clean our table replied that she would do so in a minute and then started cleaning another table, which wasn't required. My wife then had to ask another waitress to clean the table. The Americano that I ordered was bland and tasteless and the same could be said about the service too. I don't think we will be coming back here again.

This was one of my favourite places to eat and holds a special place in my heart as I had my first date here with my now husband. We hadn’t been in a while as we had read poor reviews on this site and after having some awful meals/ service at its sister pub in telscombe cliffs we didn’t want to waste our money!
Well all I can say is if this place did go down hill it has definitely pulled its socks up! We had an amazing meal, the food was piping hot and very tasty. The guy at the bar was extremely helpful and brought our drinks to the table, the waitress was very efficient and polite. So give this place a go if like me you have been avoiding, we were NOT disappointed at all.
