Absolutely incredible meal, really enjoyed all aspects of it. The yorkshire was the best I've ever had and probably the best I ever will. The potatoes let it down ever so slightly, they were a little on the hard and cold side. Everything else was perfect. Thank you so much, we will definitely be back! (Hoping for a window seat sometime in the coming months!!)

Waited a long time for our booking to come round and really enjoyed it. Service was really attentive but not stuffy in any way. The ham croquettes, roast beef and gravy were absolutely delicious. My husband would have liked a bit more pork (especially in comparison to the beef) and the potatoes were disappointing, no crispness at all but other than that very enjoyable and great value for money!

A wonderful little pub with friendly staff. The Sunday roast is not only incredible value but super tasty. Always inventive with the starters and desserts. Tender pink beef with lots of variety of veg. I love this place and we come whenever we can.

What can I say? It was an absolutely fab lunch. I went along with 7 friends and had such an enjoyable time. Lovely "proper" pub. Staff were great. The food was amazing - beautifully cooked roast beef, fab yorkies and roast potatoes and veg. I'm just so gutted that I tried to book again for a couple of month's time and there are no vacancies until next August!

Great food. Did the obvious service gestures, of having the condiments on the table and providing extra gravy, which so many other pubs and restaurants don’t. We’ll certainly look to come back.

Would be nice to bring back the proper crackling with the pork roast I had a couple years ago.
