Great garden, good service and nice atmosphere. The blankets provided for the colder evenings were appreciated! Glad it's open again!

First time in a pub since before first lockdown and a lovely experience. Friendly greeting on arrival. Nice table in the sun. Great to see how busy it was with nearly every table busy in the garden. Well worth the visit

Great setup in the garden, being both COVID friendly but also having a warm and relaxed atmosphere. Loved the booths, perfect for our family of four! Excellent food (especially the pizzas!) and an all round top first visit back to the pub.

Was the first time I’ve been here. Loved every second! What a fabulous place, great surroundings, lots of attention to detail, fabulous food and service with a smile and delight which is a rare quality. I’ve already booked to return to sample a roast dinner.

Please sort out the service system by implementing a QR code scanner for ordering. This will improve efficiency of bar staff both in the orders and producing the drink as it was extremely inefficient with the current table service

Great to be back at my local. Lovely use of the outdoor space. Staff as ever were polite and accommodating. Due to the number of people the service was a little slow - that’s nit picking though. Thanks
