Such a friendly welcoming on arrival. Led straight to the table that I had booked online (hassle free) great social distancing when taking orders and bringing us our drinks by leaving it on the table next to us. The garden is really beautifully done up and I’m looking forward to my next visit

Would like to see more alcohol free cider and beers on the menu. Burger was really well cooked and the garden area was lovely. Staff were very polite and friendly - would’ve ordinarily left a tip but not sure if this was an option on the card machine. Felt very safe being there but hand gel station was empty which was disappointing.

Love this pub. The staff are always friendly, food is delicious. The atmosphere fun and happy. Very family friendly garden. Even in there covid times they have managed to preserve this atmosphere, which other pubs haven’t seemed to be able to.

I love this place! Such a special touch to hang a happy birthday bunting for my son! Food was fab and the organisation was great with clear instructions on how it was all working!

The chicken burger and chips and Beef burger and chips were lovely, as was the Eton Mess desert. The staff were super friendly and polite. Couple downsides, our food & drink orders took a very longtime to come out, but they were very busy. And the area near the toilet smelt very badly of drainage, not sure if there is anything which could have been done about that.

Fantastic visit again. However some nob head customers moaning, you were rammed busy and trying your best on the back of closure due to corona. People should just breath and relax everyone was working as hard as they can. I heard some lady moaning that their table was wrong again. Jeeez it’s a table just sit down have a drink and chill out.

Ordered desserts was waiting for at least 20 mins only to be told no ice cream left so very disappointed I wasn't told earlier and had to have the bill readjusted as there was a drink we didn't have on bill

I have been here twice with my baby and mum friends. You have been so accommodating! Finding 8 high chairs, allowing us to move tables to put a mat down for our babies to play on, seating us undercover outside. I will continue to come here as the garden is wonderful and you are so family friendly.

We often visit here for food and drink, sometimes with friends and often with our family. Excellent service as always and especially during these strange times, we were made to feel very comfortable. Food was fantastic.

Fantastic and friendly service, the waiters really seemed to care and be putting in the effort. Food was great as ever, only minor gripe would be that it would have been nice to have been told that soft drinks weren't included in the 50% offer when ordering.
