It is some years since we last ate here.The restaurant and staff are still as pleasant as we remembered and we were surprised to find it half empty having anticipated difficulty in obtaining a table.
We found the bread served with olives,olive oil and balsamic
doughy and the olives rather tired.
The burgers ,served in large buns,were not piping hot and contained rather less fairly bland tasting minced meat than we remembered along with a little salad and a slice of well cooked mmsmoked bacon
Perhaps our memories had painted too rosy a picture but we left with full stomachs but expectations dashed

It might not look much from the outside, in fact just a normal pub. Just wait until you try the menu, it’s extraordinary grub...

(Yes, I know, it rhymes!!!!!)

Have been threatening to visit for a long time after it being recommended so called in on our home nearby Shugborough.

Good friendly welcome and reasonably priced lunch menu. Food was excellent as was the service and hospitality - why did we not visit before ?

Booked this restaurant at short notice for a 70th birthday meal, after another restaurant cancelled our booking. At the time of booking, I also advised the lovely lady I was speaking to that one of our party was Vegan and asked if there were any options available. She promised the chef would try their best and boy, did they! When we sat down to eat, the Vegan member was offered several off-menu choices for both starters and mains, which was fantastic! Aside from that, all the other guests' food was also fantastic - fast service, really well-presented and everyone had empty plates at the end. We had dropped off a surprise birthday cake earlier in the day, and the staff brought this out for dessert and had added candles to it, which was a lovely touch. They even stayed to sing Happy Birthday! We were so surprised at how reasonably priced everything was as well, so much so that my partner and I checked the bill several times before paying, just to make sure nothing had been missed off! Cannot recommend this venue enough!
