We enjoyed our evening.
Had the fish and chips. Chips lovely but the fish was overcooked with soggy batter
Lovely place in beautiful area. Very clean and smart pub with good menu. Food was great and friendly service.
Food and service were very good, possibly could have done with some background music to improve ambiance. Car park useful but pitch black.
Visited here 22nd September and was not disappointed. Greeted by a cheerful fellow, tasteful decor throughout and the food was just heavenly! I had the slow cooked pork belly dish and it was so flavoursome! Plenty of crackling which was fab, a real treat! My other half had the salmon dish and he loved it! Only regret is that the 22nd was our last night and wish we discovered this lovely establishment sooner! We will be back!
Lovely food and great care given to COVID safety.
the restaurant tables were well spaced out, the food was very good, the service was a little below par.
Lovely lunch sitting outside in the last of the summer sun. Great food, good sized portions.
