The food was fantastic, good enough that we will be going again next week, portions were of ample size, and in fact a little large for my wife, but absolutely no complaints, parking was easy with plenty of space, and the service was very good.
All in all a very nice experience.

Pub was distinctly average overall.

They didn’t space us out well from the other guests even though the pub was half empty and even though otherwise they had good Covid controls.

A very pleasant roast lunch was had by me and my family. Very tasty with plenty of veg. We did miss the self service carvery that used to run however and hope it will soon be back.

I enjoyed it, reasonable priced food and good portion sizes. Very hot dessert though 🥵 sticky toffee pudding… not bad on the whole.
I’m happy, for a local spur of the minute ‘I don’t want to cook’ moment.
7 or 8 out of 10 😊

Food would've been lovely if it was hot. It took an hour to arrive from ordering and was only warm, kids meals were hot though. Disappointing. Also website stated midweek carvery, but failed to say it was only lunchtime, us and at least one more large table went for a carvery.

Went for midweek lunch. Some items on menu not available. Decided on the carvery roast although the large portion was not available, which seemed a bit strange. Food was served quickly, was tasty and hot. Staff very attentive. Excellent value.

Good homely basic cooking, staff were attentive and the ambience was nice. Not the best Sunday lunch but if you're looking for quantity over quality then for the price it's worth a trip out.

A really nice place to have dinner excellent food and friendly staff. The only drawback was a very poor choice of beer and cider. Certainly not a place if you like something out of the ordinary.

Lovely friendly local pub. We were a group of 5 adults 3 had roast which was very good. Veg served separately so easy to have what you like. More was offered if needed. Only thing to note is it comes covered in gravy so remember to say if you don’t want gravy!
Hunters chicken was good with large salad. Scampi large portion (12 I think) very good.

Was table service. Clean. Friendly. Felt safe Well done all round.

Food was bland, veg was covered in red cabbage water, no Yorkshire pudding when it's clearly advertised on the menu.
Overpriced desserts which had squirty cream rather than proper cream.
Service was quite good but had to wait a long time for the bill.
Overall ... I won't bother again!

Main courses were great. The desserts were not so good. Sticky toffee pudding was very powdery to eat. Felt as they were frozen and microwaved too much so not so great. Service was excellent. Dog friendly and nicely refurbished.

The food was very tasty, we had the large and the regular roasts but the portions weren’t that different other than two extra roast potatoes. All of the vegetables came in 3 little dishes between 5 people soo not a lot of it considering two of them were large roasts soo a bit expensive in my opinion. But the thing that let it down the most was that it was luke warm .
The staff were all really friendly as well
