Enjoyed my meal with friend. I had monkfish Thai curry and friend had the fish risotto. Both plentiful and delicious.
Great table with privacy to chat and friendly and helpful staff.

The food was a huge disappointment.
Had to send one dish back but it was replaced by a Thai curry that tasted salty and dull.

I had the fish pie, which was absolutely delicious, whilst my wife the cheese soufflé, which she said was also excellent.
The service was very friendly but just took a few minutes longer expected… no big deal.

One of the best Sunday lunches I've had out - good portion size, delicious food and they were happy to provide extra gravy. Such a lovely pub, looking particularly beautiful at Christmas time. The staff were friendly, professional and efficient. A great experience.

The food and service were up to their usual high standard but I was disappointed to find that a 10% 'service charge had been added to my bill? This is one of my pet hates! I usually tip between 10 & 15% ,unless service has been poor, so it's very irritating to find that a restaurant has presumed that it's OK to just add this charge....it isn't!

Responded on 11 December 2021

We just want to clarify that the reason we now do this is because of the huge increase in people using contactless card since the limit was increased. Contactless payments don't allow for people to leave a tip, and we had a lot of customers expressing disappointment that they hadn't been able to express their gratitude to the staff. We clearly state the service charge on the menu, and also that it is discretionary and you are able to ask for it to be removed if you feel it is not deserved.

Went there for the roast dinner. Beautiful cosy pub just off the High Street. It was full, buzzing, log fire on, very cosy.

Good selection of lunches, we opted for the roast beef and chicken. Lovely big yorkshire puddings, nice portion of good quality meat and the food was served nice and hot.

Negatives: Only 2 roast potatoes. One small veg dish between two people isn't enough - especially when there was a lot of roast onion?! Not exactly a roast dinner vegetable?! Overall the veg was lacking. I spotted a smidgen of pureed parsnip on my plate, and a dessert spoon size of cabbage?!! A bit bizarre really. Why bother with such a small amount? On balance a good freshly cooked roast, but the veggies were lacking. We did ask for more - they obliged but again, it was mostly roasted onion?! Where were the carrots? Swede? Peas? Cauli? So many veg choices out there.. why serve red onion pieces?!!! Well priced overall. I would expect more plentiful vegetables next time. I would return.
