    I ordered the fish n chips after previously having it at the salhouse lodge ( same group I believe) my main came and the plate was swim with more frozen garden peas than I’ve ever seen ..then a huge pile of oven chips that we awful ..the fish was not fresh ( definitely frozen) you could see that once the batter was lifted ..not much taste at all ! Our table was right by the door ( table of 4) although only 2 of us and my nephew was knocked so many times he moved round ..in doing this he was sitting in an open fire place !! To many tables crowed in ..very close together and because it’s a dog friendly pub ( which is great ) the experience of dogs around your table isn’t for everyone .. one table had their dog sitting on their lap at the table ! The staff we vet pleasant and welcoming..would I return !!!! Maybe just for a drink outside .

    Good service. We were able to be seated a little earlier than our booking as the table was ready. The food was plentiful and good. Food service was very quick. The only slight negative I have is that we had our dog with us and we were seated at a table in the middle of the room, where staff / customers were walking past. This isn’t ideal when with a pooch. Ideally we would have been seated at one of the more tucked away tables to avoid having to continuously move the dog to allow people past. When we booked, I did make it clear we would have a dog with us

    We visited on Easter Saturday so the place was very busy and very noisy. We were seated immediately and our order taken within a few minutes. The food was served quite quickly and was absolutely delicious. Service was good, all as usual. Very good even on a really busy day.

    Great menu selection, lots of local produce. Service was quite slow and we had to ask for someone a couple of times. There was not enough car parking for a busy Saturday night, however a lovely member of staff came out to try and help us find a spot. Otherwise excellent, lovely cosy country pub.

    Always lovely food, friendly staff, cosy ambience and beautiful location. Plenty of scrumptious options for starters, mains and desserts. I’m often tempted towards the vegetarian choices and, so far, have not been disappointed.

    Had the roast beef Sunday lunch...amazing! Lots of very tender melt in the mouth , pink beef. Lovely fresh, crunchy veg and lots of gravy. Service very attentive and efficient. This was our third visit but certainly won't be the last. Highly recommended.

    We chose the venison steaks. Whilst generally tender these were definitely on the well done range. Diners should preferably be given a choice of how the well cooked the meat is. As usual the portions were large and a bread and olives shared intro with the main course was more than enough for us.
