It was a wet, windy rather miserable day and we had booked one of your garden rooms to celebrate my birthday. No problem we kept cosy in our heated pod. The staff were great as they went back and forth to get our food and drinks in the rain, with smiles on their faces and having a joke with us. We were all surprised that the food stayed hot. Well worth a visit!

Had a meal here back in August food was fantastic and service was brilliant. Thought with it being so good in August we would book again for my 40th Birthday, unfortunately food wasn't as good and although the pub wasn't as busy as it was back in August the service was alot slower. Big let down on my special day.
