    It was lovely but I must say I did prefer the old menu that had the selection of sandwiches and chips which is handy if you are meeting friends and having a snack. The new menu just didn't quite do it for me.

    Food was very good (pulled pork gyro and cheese and onion pie) including properly cooked chips which is getting rarer these days. Service also friendly. Could be a bit more variety on the menu (eg sandwiches) but otherwise an excellent choice.

    It was a lovely starter and main and good service up to that though really wanted desert and coffee but the staff seemed to disappear then and waited a while to attract attention, bar area a bit noisy so didn’t want to disturb bar staff , after a bit of a wait we just paid up and left . Friendly staff though & nice food so would go back

    Can’t fault the food one bit, taste and presentation was outstanding, my only criticism is that the pots of tea that we got was only half filled and it wasn’t hot and the dessert menu was a selection of about 6 desserts and 5 of them was chocolate based so a bit of a variety would be welcomed

    Lovely birthday meal . My cheese pot pie was the best I've tasted as was my molten chocolate dessert. Service was very good. My companion thought his fish and chips were bland. Maybe the batter could be better seasoned. His jam sponge was delicious

    First visit, would go again. Attentive service, great quality food. Steak pie was gorgeous with crispy shortcrust pastry (top & bottom!) Tables were a bit close together so noise level was bit higher than we'd have liked but it's a pub rather than a restaurant so to be expected.

    We had a lovely evening- food was good and atmosphere was good as usual. I was a bit dubious when I booked, as I could only get a high table. I need not have worried it was a lovely table in the quieter back room. 😀
