First time I have been here and it won’t be the last. Totally impressed with the atmosphere, food and service. Just could not fault anything. I used the toilets and it’s a long time since I have seen toilets spotlessly clean

Booked for a special family event. Food was cold, 3 soups sent back to be reheated. Meant to be spicy and everyone commented on no spice and added pepper. Mains were all luke warm but as service was slow we couldnt be bothered mentioning it. One main course was left in kitchen forgotten about and kids chicken nuggets were inediable. Service was very slow considering there were only 3 other tables in and the waitress commented she was busy!? Very dissappointed and its local so could have been a regular thing. High Tea menu good value just need hot food to match!

The staff were lovely and took our order quite promptly . However we had to wait at least half an hour for our food to arrive. Disappointing that there was no steak pie as the restaurant was very quiet.

Food was good as it always is when we go. Just a pity the mixed grill is now off the menu but enjoyed what we had.

New decor is lovely. Staff friendly. Food very tasty but a wee side salad or similar would have added to my bbq chicken melt and improved the look on the plate (I'm sure used to come with). The menu has been vastly slimmed down so not the same "different" items on offer as used to be. Looked like pretty much any other pub menu but without the "2 for £x offers you get elsewhere. Place was very quiet for a Friday night, both pub and restaurant, needs some advertising or big promo to pull people back in (though maybe it's just cos it's Jan and everyone skint?)

Decided last minute to make a booking for New Years Day Brunch. On arrival we were promptly seated and shown where to help ourselves to tea/coffee and juice. We didn’t need to wait long between ordering and food arriving. Both adults ordered the steak pie and chicken pie, and oh my goodness the portion sizes were huge and melt in the mouth delicious. My son had the macaroni, which he gobbled down with garlic bread and chips in super quick time. Given the amount of food we were served, this was an incredible value for money meal. The only comment I would make is the bunch said it came with free toast if booked online, and that didn’t make an appearance - to be fair, it would have only spoiled our appetite for the main event. Good wholesome food, we’ll be back.

Really impressed by the food, atmosphere and service here. I’ve been for two xmas lunches and plan on going for a third on Saturday! It’s such a good deal. Baby friendly with loads of space for a pram/walking around.

Excellent food as usual, the new look restaurant is amazing! We did have to flag down staff for more drinks & to order desert but it was busy so we understood. Thanks for a great afternoon.

We came on Wednesday a party of 5 and was instantly impressed by the updated restaurant, it looked far more spacious and better layout of seating. The disappointment was the time it took to deliver our meal (approximately an hour from ordering) when 3 of us had salads and one a baked potato !!! the salads arrived minus the sides of baked potatoes and additional salads which took another 15 minutes after the meal. This is the same issue we have encountered with the mains on previous visits even when there are only 5 tables occupied in the whole restaurant why does it take so long ............... An improvement on the service would make a huge difference especially as the food is good and with the make over it is really a nice place to eat

Another excellent meal! This is a great local restaurant for us as it's within walking distance - so no "designated driver"!. The only slight query is that the online menu is out of date - this meant we were surprised that the option to have chilli with the nachos starter has been removed. Great portions, hot, freshly prepared food. Although it didn't affect us, there were no "specials" available.
