Fish and chips overdone but edible. Forgot my veg, had to ask for it. No one asked us if we needed drinks when delivering food when both had empty glasses. Waiter stood outside kitchen texting on phone when tables needed clearing.

I can honestly say this was one of the very best places I have stayed and eaten in. Friendly, warm and very comfortable. My dog Gracie was made such a fuss of, which of course she fully deserved!!
Will return.

Food was very good, we had delicious nachos for a starter, and 2 types of burger for a main.

Only minus point was the cost of beer. It was £6.50 for Birra Morretti and around £5 for Amstel.

So overall 4/5, well worth going just order a coke or something if you don't want to get stung with drinks bill.

A very good little pub. What it does it does well. Attentive staff and the food was as it said on the menu all served on time hot and presentable. If you want decent pub grub done well with great well kept beer then this is the place. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars for the service is because the waitress forgot some of our order but maybe she was new! However she made up for it in her apology and how she dealt with it. Overall I plan to visit this little gem again and I have no doubt that the continuity of standards will remain both in the food and service. A very enjoyable night thank you all.

Menu was a little bland and not the same as shown on this app. When we asked for a the specials we were handed some slips of paper with 2 soup options and that was all. Very surprised the only steak on offer was a gammon steak. The food we ordered was nice, but we were underwhelmed by the quality, especially given the price we paid.

Found the menu choices quite restrictive however the food was tasty but not outstanding.
Despite it being early and the pub was not busy service was slow and we had to go to the bar to say we wanted desert and to pay the bill.
Also initially the wrong bill and the error was only picked up because. I asked for an itemised till receipt.
Have been before for lunch and enjoyed the sandwiches which were very tasty so would recommend for lunch but not dinner

We’ve had some good meals here in the past, but unfortunately this visit didn’t live up to expectations.
The menu on the booking website was not on offer,, neither were the service times accurate…..
The actual menu on offer was very limited and disappointing.
