Due to Civid-19 we have taken to undertake regular walks and taking in a number eating establishments on our way round. We checked their web site and decided to book a table,
It was the best place that we had visited and intend visiting again (unfortunately due to the latest lock down not for 4 weeks) I would recommended to all.

Food was pretty good but overpriced. Small sized portion, couldn't get more sides as with a lot of pub roasts.
Awful service. Sat waiting for a long time on multiple occasions - was going to order dessert but put sat waiting for too long so got the bill. Then had to go to the bar to pay the bill as they took so long to come back.

A shame as the pub is in a nice area and had a nice atmosphere to it. Might give it one more chance as the food was alright but far better pubs around based on that experience.

Really good gastropub meal. We just had main courses - pie of the day (lamb), burger and risotto all well prepared with quality ingredients. Good selection of wines by the glass. Service charming as well as efficient.

Fantastic proper home cooked pub food. Our family group of 5 all loved the delicious generous meals. Extremely good value and very good service. The dinning room was a little cold but it was a crisp evening.

My sister and I ate dinner here recently. She had Pork Belly and I had Mussels. We both shared bread and Olives to start. The staff were attentive, taking our drinks order as we sat. Our food was , fresh and well prepared and presented. The drinks are a little pricy but in these times where we don’t drink much or go out often, I didn’t really mind. The Covid protocol was being taken seriously but with a friendly approach. We both enjoyed our experience and will return soon!

The Mussels in Cream and white wine starter very tasty and we had the Harissa Lamb rump with giant Couscous as one main which was both tasty and very tender.
The other main was the Goan Hake & Prawn Curry with Poppadoms which was delicious and not over spiced, so you could taste the fish and the very succulent Prawns.

We were too full for desserts I'm afraid!!

Lovely venue, however food over priced, disappointed with a very average scampi and chips, that quite honestly I could have cooked from my freezer. Maybe I made the wrong choice. Staff were friendly. Would I go back? Not sure.
