    We came here on two consecutive nights. The first night was fine. The second night the service was shocking. Had to constantly try and get a waiter/waitress attention. It took an hour for them to take our order. However for a very brief spell a very good male waiter came on shift and tried to make things better. He was very good and efficient. I tried to see a name badge but couldn’t. Unfortunately he disappeared quickly. You have to buy your drinks at the bar when considering the price of the meals I think this should be table service.

    The steak pie was as good as usual but the belly pork needed some crisping up. We felt a bit rushed as the main meal was ready straight after the starter although it was kept warm until we were ready. We prefer ordering the food when we're ready to eat rather than table service and making it more of an experience. The waitress was lovely.

    Had to listen to screaming football fans Not the quiet family meal we were hoping for. Table service for food but not drinks which is disappointing, Steak and ale pie was nice, So was the Burger which was quality meat cooked perfect. Not the home made chips though they were under cooker very white and possibly frozen so they let the meal down, But the deserts were good, Overall for the price we expected it to be of a high standard which it could be if a few changes were made which might explain why it wasn’t very busy on a Saturday. Staff were very helpful and polite made us feel welcome.

    Even though it was relatively quiet we were left for over 30 minutes until I actually walked over to ask someone to take my order. Food was not good quality, I ordered steak and ale pie, and the meat was extremely tough, the child's pasta had no flavour. If you can be bothered to go out for food I would recommend doing so.

    Food was ok, service was ok but it should of been as restaurant quiet at time of visit. I booked table on line and when we arrived they wernt aware of who we were. I couldnt put my drinks and food onto one bill and pay at the end it was a pay as you go service. Our meal was for a valentines evening , yet the restaurant didnt do anything to show it was an event , nit even a valentines menu? The restaurant could of done with some background music as you could of heard a pin drop? The restaurant was very clean and treny looking. The bar had run out of sav blanc wine? Even though not many people in? This is just my opinion, but all of the above i would eat there again.

    After a 6 hour drive and setting up our van in very wet and windy conditions, we were tired, wet and hungry. Had booked the table for 8pm but turned up early and were seated straight away. Fantastic staff, food was on par and a lovely relaxing atmosphere with a large glass of red. Thank you

    Lovely food . We have been staying here for a new year break. The staff are really helpful. There were a couple of things unavailable on the menu as they have been busy and are soon to close for a winter break but the staff were really helpful offering alternatives. Food was delicious and fresh and really good value for money. The Venue has undergone a refurb over the last few years and is decorated really nicely.

    Pizzas and loaded fries were tasty and great value for money. I do find it a bit bright for evening dining and although I like dogs and own dogs. I really don’t think dogs should be on the seats or up at tables ! That’s my personal opinion
