Food was over cooked, which was a shame as the flavours were good.

We booked a garden party to celebrate the 1st communion of our daughter. A section of the garden was reserved for us. The food was wonderful, there was a fantastic relaxed atmosphere and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. We took off one star for service as the communication about the party during the planning stage wasn't great, we had to chase the staff to answer our emails or phone calls. However, on the day, everything was more than perfect and everything we had asked for was there, they had even added some flowers on the table as a little extra. So thank you and we would certainly recommend this place to everyone.

Food was definitely average, no where near as good as it used to be - barely any chicken in the fajitas, boiled rice instead of the nice spicy rice used to have. Service was slow and sloppy - order came out wrong, almost finished my meal before my drink eventually got to me. Pub was practically empty (probably something to do with the average food and poor service!) Very overpriced for what you got.

Arrived at 19:30 and we did not start eating until 21:30, food arrived burnt, dry and lacking in presentation, and was extremely over priced. It was very hard to get staffs attention throughout the night even though the restaurant was half empty. A complaint was made regarding burnt food, and a staff member proceeded to pick the food up off the plate and walk away with the food inbetween their fingers, rather than taking the plate away, we couldn't believe our eyes. It felt like staff had almost given up. Despite this, atmosphere was lovely, and well presented.

Generally i love your restaraunt and it is always my go to place when having guests but fathers day was really poor. Im not sure if it was just due to the large table but the food wasnt as good as it normally is yet it was more expensive and the service was really slow however the staff were friendly as ever.

I was a bit disappointed to be given my roast beef dinner to find it was missing roast potatoes & yorkshire puddings (these have been mentioned on other reviews) - it felt like they had run out as the portions on identical plates varied greatly, the paté was also served without butter. Our table was squeezed in & I was constantly being knocked by waiting staff & people getting to the other table. We ate our food & got out as quickly as possible. This was definitely not worth the £60 paid for our two meals & drinks. The waiting staff were all very pleasant & friendly but the food has put me off returning in the future, a cheap cafe roast from up the road is much better quality & value for money.

Menu is very good and a very large gin selection! The only issue was that they ran out of sparkling wine/prosecco when we got there, as well as beef burgers. Service was good and a nice atmosphere. The drinks were quite slow to come but we did order cocktails and a range of drinks. Drinks were relatively cheap and large portion sizes of food. Would definitely recommend!

It was the first time we'd eaten at the pub and it was lovely. It was steak night which such good value. There was only one moan about the evening, the bar staff need to learn to put cucumber in Hendrick's gin and NEVER pour all the tonic in the glass, it should be given separately.

Nice food and decor but loud swearing by a group at the bar was off putting as we had kids. Service was ok but slow.
