Sat in back garden on a sunny Wednesday in September for lunch which was very pleasant. Hadn't been for years so will definitely be back.

Restaurant Response

Hi Vakii, Thank you for the feedback. Our menu changes all the time, sorry if the current menu isn't to your liking. I'm sorry you felt the service wasn't as good as it use to be, I'll be having a word to all the staff. Unfortunately we have had to put some prices up due to the suppliers increases due to the uncertainty of Brexit. We also had to do a small increase to handle the 300% increase in our Business rates bill. Hopefully if you do visit again we hit the mark. Kind regards, Heath

Three of us had the sirloin and all felt it was the best sirloin steak we’d ever eaten! The rest of the meal was excellent - our party of 6 had the oysters, mussels, burrata, duck, vegetable wellington, all enjoyed. Service was perfect, friendly and efficient. Fab pub setting, clean toilets with an accessible disabled loo which we needed, the only down side was that it was quite noisy in the pub.

Hi there... we came here for a birthday celebration on Friday. We’ve been here a few times and really like it. Overall good experience but Vegan starter salad was lacking in contents - more avacado & palm hearts - they were very small. Mainly lettuce. Vegan burger average and cold topping/ sauce. I have to say I was happy there was a vegan option. The duck was a hit with everyone. As were starters. The children were made a dish without diary which was nice but expected in restaurants now but without the bun & cheese . I thought the veg that was offered would be included in price - nope. The service was very hit and miss - not busy in pub and enough staff but felt we had to wait a bit and when we had no drinks we weren’t asked for more - had to try and order when someone walked past ... drinks forgotten , a while to take orders. A little vegan dish for kids would be good.
