Back room lacking Indy any atmosphere, would ask to sit in other area. Food reasonable but very plain and a little over priced for what it is. Service friendly an good.

Great food and service. Glad we booked as it was really busy - always a good sign. Have eaten in the garden and bar areas before but never the restaurant. Highly recommend for a great Sunday lunch

the service was absolutely appaling on Sunday. It ruined my mothers day lunch with my children. we had to ask for our starters to be cleared away. we had to wait 20 mins for my children's vegetables to come and had to ask for them. By the time they arrived the children had finished the chicken roast. we never had one check back to our table. considering you was recommended as the best place to have a dinner we were very disappointed.

Maybe it was the wrong time to go but at l for a 7.30 booking for five of us on a Sunday evening we were put in room on our own and pretty much forgotten. Had to call for service and the vegetarian but roast was served roast potatoes and parsnips all looking and tasting very burnt and brown. Covered in brown gravy. Very disappointed as were trying to show off your lovely old pub to our friends from Hinckley. 😞

On a very busy Sunday, our first visit. Food was good but the vegetables offered with Sunday roast could be more interesting, we felt. Puddings were excellent. More staff definitely needed although staff who served us were efficient and pleasant. Lovely surroundings and quirky pub!

A lovely lunchtime with open fires & a cosy atmosphere. The two barmen/waiters couldn’t have been anymore helpful or friendly

Lovely food, excellent service. Unfortunately choice was low on the menu as we visited later in the day (19.30). This was disappointing as the booking was taken and we’d have hope for the same options as guests served earlier. Also we found the lighting very bright in the dining room which didn’t really help the ambience. I ordered a trio of sausages and got 3 of the same without explanation. What we did have was excellent quality and the staff fantastic, it’s just a shame it wasn’t perfect

Had a lovely night great service, apart from forgetting my blue cheese on my burger and ran out of crem brule. But a great place will come again 👍
