I had belly pork to start, in some places you get 1 or 2 pieces which is barely enough to taste, here there was 5 good bite sized chunks that you could tuck into without it been over bearing. Main course was the Yorkshire Burger, cooked pink as requested. It came with fries and salad and again a good sized main course. It was good food without been to fancy or pretentious, perfect for me and we will be back very soon for more.

Good was nice and well presented but our experience was marred by woeful service. Forgot our drinks order twice and left without menus for nearly half an hour. A shame because it was a nice, warm lovely looking pub.

Arrived 10 min late for a booked table but still had to wait 20 min to be seated at a wobbly table. One of the mains was cold and had obviously been sitting in the kitchen for a long time. Pudding took a long time to be served. Obviously over booked for the staff on duty, will try again at a quieter time.
