We were warmly welcomed and received fantastic service. The food was very enjoyable and good value for money. It’s a family friendly pub, but is a lovely atmosphere for adults also. We would definitely return.

Great food and the service was really good. Only minor issue was that we were sat near the door and every time it opened a cold breeze would come in. Obviously you can’t control the weather, but perhaps if the outer door was kept closed and a heat blanket fan used in the little lobby area would help to keep the heat in.

Lovely roast dinner, prompt service and lovely staff. The only slight issue is one you can’t control really - the noise level in the main dining area! There was a large party eating lunch who were quite animated & something about the acoustics in there means it becomes quite noisy & we struggled to hear each other talk at times. Otherwise all good.

A great venue for a birthday party for 50 people. A great space with additional outside seating. Lovely relaxed atmosphere. Becca and Chris (and the rest of the staff) were both very helpful and professional in all of our dealings. Would thoroughly recommend. Thanks for everything.
