Fantastic location for family celebration. Russle was friendly and could not do enough to make the day go smoothly from sourcing music suitable for the occasion to running the bar and ensuring everyone’s needs were met. Food was lovely as usual and Tina was also in hand to ensure everything went to plan. Could not have asked for a better day, everyone commented how lovely it was. Thank you all.

We were given a great table. The ladies were super attentive in taking our order and bring our food. The food, I had the port belly, was amazing! And lots of it. Great value. We were shown the bistro which is very smart. I think this pub is better than the more fussy and expensive Bull Inn up the road.

Delicious food, gorgeous setting however forgetful service. Had to ask for drinks, poppodoms weren’t brought out and the owner was very standoffish when I asked why a table were served their food before us even though they arrived at least 45 minutes after us. This is the third time I’ve visited and each time the service has been very slow.

From the moment we arrived we taken care of beautifully, the young lady who served us was very attentive and knowledgable about the menu. We shared at the sharing platter to start, followed by the giant Scampi and a lovely Burger, the fries were delicious too! We wouldn’t hesitate to return!

I came here for a meal with my parents, as they were visiting me from Scotland and Cornwall. We had a beautiful meal and the service was amazing. This is our local pub and we have been in a few times for a drink, but we will definitely eat in here more often. We all finished our plates and it was the perfect end to a lovely weekend. Thank you.

We were able to book a table for 9 at very short notice and were treated like royalty from start to finish! The Bistro is beautifully decorated and has a very warm & relaxing atmosphere. We all enjoyed our food, and my niece was apparently the first ever Vegan to try the vegan cheese board!!! - and she was delighted with it.

Not really sure what to say. Nice traditional pub surroundings and enjoyed our visit but we were told as soon as we arrived lamb roast was sold out. There were 5 of us when the 5th dinner arrived it didn’t have any veg. We were then told that they had run out of veg so gave us an extra Yorkshire and some extra cauliflower cheese. The potatoes were billed as fresh duck fat potatoes, but tasted of school dinner potatoes. For desert we ordered sticky toffee pudding we got served syrup sponge as they didn’t have any sticky toffee. Management deducted cost of puddings from the bill. We did enjoy the atmosphere and would visit again, but would only visit early otherwise may suffer fate of running out of food again
