    Walked in without booking on a Monday lunchtime, friendly welcome, seated in a cosy restaurant area with open fire, perfect as it was a very wet and cold day. Very friendly waitress, great knowledge of the food, went for the seasonal offer and was not disappointed, absolutely amazing lamb burger and the hot chocolate and cappuccino cake was delicious. Would definitely recommend and look forward to going again! (Which will be very soon as I left my hat there!)

    Dropped in for a snack and a pint on a quiet Monday. The "ordinary pub burger" was arguably one of the most delicious, well trimmed burgers I have tasted in 77 years. The young lady at the bar was absolutely charming and caught a perfect note of welcome and good service. Menu looked really interesting and the lunch deal good value. I shall definitely return for a more formal meal, of which I have high hopes. Many thanks for such a pleasant experience.

    Worst dining experience and family meal in a very long time, for what was meant to be a birthday and family celebration. Very overpriced for basic meals - would give no stars if I could. Service was very slow, with food delivered 65-70 minutes after arrival. Pie of the week was bolognese pie - more Dolmeo than home made sauce and Pasta Primavera included burnt/synged pasta and cabbage as a substitute for samphire. Will not be going back.

    After reading some recent negative reviews we were a bit apprehensive, but we had a lovely experience and the food was great. The mainly young staff were attentive and courteous and our group of 8, plus a baby were all pleased with our meals. The steak was cooked perfectly, veg burger and tofu halloumi style salad were very tasty. The coffee and chocolate brownie was huge, with large chunks of fudge and really tasty...enough to share between two. All food was hot, well presented and all adequate portion sizes and reasonable value for money. As an added bonus, there was live music and BBQ, with a mini beer festival in the large garden and the pub was lively, but relaxed and very welcoming. The building itself is attractive and welcoming. The ladies loos weren't plush, but clean and adequate. I'd definitely recommend visiting and seeing for yourself, rather than taking too much notice of negative reviews. Any restaurant can have an off day, but we eat out weekly and this pub was certainly one we would visit again.

    OK food and service. Pricey for what it was. Pie and chips: Nice chicken pie, but hard dry chips. Liver and Bacon: great liver, local too. The bacon appeared mostly not local, as in only a little bit of the promised bacon seemed to have reached the plate. Did taste nice. Perhaps felt a tenner too much overall for what we got. Might visit if in the area again, but would try other places 1st.
