Yes I would recommend it’s a lovely pub & restaurant but over priced & you pay extra for choice of veg, drinks are expensive too, service very good tho.

The only negative we had was the wine. The Rioja on the list was unavailable and we were offered a
different one. This was fine until, on receiving the bill it was £9 more. We did not mention it as we
were with guests and just let it go. Hopefully, it was a one-off error. That apart, the meal and service
were very nice.

Lovely food. Maybe a little overpriced for a Sunday roast. Would it really hurt to Chuck a couple more roasted spuds on. Would definitely eat off the main menu again

Hi, I would like to say this was properly one of our worse dining dinner ever, the sharing board starter we good we enjoyed that we was hoping our mains would be on the same standards but when the mains arrived they was an absolute disappointment my lamb came pink and full of fat lams on it while I asked for it to be cooked medium as I hate eating pink meat I can’t even watch pink meat in front in y dinner table my misses pork belly turned up cooked pink and full of pig hair in the skin the chicken breast was away too dry I didn’t complain as we don’t really like to complain but this time I feel like I just wasted £110 the desert apple scramble was ok but the cheese cake didn’t test anything like a cheese cake it was a very disappointing evening and we will definitely not return I will also tell my family and friends how but experience we had on this place and it was our first time dining there we heard the advertisement on the radio and we thought we would give it a go but now we wish we never did as we don’t have money to throw away.

I was extremely disappointed with my cheese potato topped pie. It was served in a small dish and bore little relation to any other pie I’ve eaten. It was not only very small in size but the filling was only average. Shockingly, it was served with no additional vegetables and looked lonely, silly and isolated sitting atop a large empty plate. I was obliged to pay £4.50 for a portion of green broccoli spears. Later that day, I suffered from a fairly violent stomach upset. I cannot be certain that the meal was to blame but that was the only food I’d eaten since a slice of toast at breakfast. I will not be returning to this pub.

Poor service by irritable staff who seem poorly trained.
We were given the wrong menus to start.
Water was spilled all over me by a waiter who plonked down plates in such a gussy that’s my glass of water ended up all over me.
The wine glasses were not topped up even once. I had to get up every time to go and fetch our bottle of wine from the ice bucket some way away.
A service charge was included for a table of 2 despite abysmal service. The food can be described as cooked.
Don’t go there!

We had the most amazing food, beautiful flavours as a vegetarian that doesn’t eat fish either I would’ve liked maybe one other option for the main, but less said food , staff , ambience was first class.

Had a lovely meal, good service with helpful, knowledgeable staff in a relaxed welcoming atmosphere. Only downside was the automatic adding of a “discretionary” 12% tip. With no option to add more or less.

Lovely country pub feel with excellent food, service was with a smile and comfortable, relaxed environment. Restaurant prices (rather than pub prices) which matches the quality of the food so no issues, their is a good range of cheaper options (circa £15 per dish) and then the more expensive Steaks plus sides which are circa £30 - £35 per dish. So all options covered, highly recommended.
