Thursday Steak night 2 meals and bottle of wine for 29.99 very disappointing on this occasion! The meals were very minimal hardly filled the plate, would of been nice to have side salad included or veg, could have gone to the next pub up the road and got far better value for money. Need to improve on this to attract us back.:(

As a party of 12, we had to wait a long time for certain starters to come out. We weren't given a spoon with the soup so we had to ask for cutlery and ask for the accompanying bread. We also had to ask to order drinks, bottles of wine and prosecco which weren't even opened for us. Mains arrived, again we were waiting a considerable amount of time for two meals to arrive. We then waited even longer for the veg to arrive and when it did it arrived cold! The veg got sent back to the kitchen so we had to wait even longer at which point our mains had gone cold. We were that hungry that we didn't dare ask for the mains to be reheated as we didn't know how long it would take! One guest had a slice of turkey that was actually burnt! There wasn't even cranberry sauce on the table! A couple of desserts were reluctantly ordered and when they arrived we waited about 10 minutes for cutlery so they could be eaten. One of the staff asked how our meals were so we told them a the problems and they did say they would take 25% off the food bill. The staff came to take payment from us before we had even asked for the bill. Whilst it was nice of the staff to acknowledge that there had been problems by offering 25% discount, we had the festive menu so realistically and from a catering point of view it is very basic and straightforward! Simple things like cutlery being on the table and the food actually being hot and edible. The staff weren't attentive at all. All in all it was a rather disasterous evening and I definitely won't be returning.

Only negative was the loss of the gluten free separate menus as it was not clear what range of dishes where on offer. Other than that the food and service was excellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed the lunch with our friends and like us they were most impressed with the meal and service. Your Christmas Fayre menu was very appetising with superb choices. Give our compliments to the Chef and his team. We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends. Have a good Christmas.

Very welcoming and shown straight to our table. Drink service was prompt. A good menu covering all tastes. We had Sunday roast and the meals were hot, vegetables perfect along with the succulent turkey . Roasties golden and crunchy. The was a good choice of sweets and they were extremely good too . Very satisfied

Have been here many times in the past. The food is generally good and Sunday lunch was fine. I have to say that on this occasion we were disappointed with the service. We had to wait 45 minutes to be served with food, a long time for a party of two. When we eventually caught somebody's attention to order a second round of drinks we had to ask if we had been forgotten. Our roast beef dinner was served shortly after that.

Service was quite slow and food wasn’t as nice as it used to be. Took ages for the drinks to come and food isn’t as nice as the wayfarer etc although I believe the Lewis partnership think they are contenders with them.

The pub was quite busy for a Wednesday and I’m not sure if this was because guests were staying or if it always like that but it was great to see. The food was excellent as was the complimentary bottle of Prosecco due to it been my birthday recently. Lovely touch thank you. I must say that the whipped chicken liver parfait was very tasty the only thing I can add would be a little more bread and this be served on the side rather than under the parfait itself as I prefer it that way. (Critical I know but I like things the way I like them) the caramelised onions were very tasty too. Steaks were cooked perfectly and my sauce was more tasty than the hubby’s to the point he said he would order the sauce I had and ask for more peppercorns to be added. Overall very nice and will definitely return. Disappointed Rebecca has left, but happy for her on her new role within the partnership.

We have been enjoying lovely meals and service here for years. Sadly not this time. Table not ready on arrival, manager extremely inattentive (bordering on rude), bar staff inept, food mediocre, table not cleared between courses, kept waiting for service. Do not blame the young waiters and waitresses who were doing their best with presumably little training, Overall, decidedly poor. £52.52 wasted. Will not go back.
