I booked a meal for 17 people for my Mum's birthday, when we first arrived we were disappointed as we had been allocated 2 separate tables but the staff resolved this for us very quickly and we all very much enjoyed our family get together. The food and drink was very nice and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend.

Having to wait over an hr for our food was not a good recommendation for you. I appreciate you were very busy. But it was a pity, that although we had pre-ordered, the food was not on time. Adding to this your staff were very welcoming. I would love to come again. Provided you could re-assure me that we would get a meal at a reasonable time.

We visited on Sunday for our wedding anniversary and to treat our children. The childrens meals were fantastic and excellent value for money. Myself and husband did the whole 3 course meal thing, why not! The waiter took our food order and we asked if we could have the childrens meals with our starters as our children eat rather slow and figured that they would probably only be around half way through their meals once our main course arrives. This sadly was not the case. After waiting near on 15 minutes for our starter plates to be cleared and a further 45 minutes for our Sunday roasts (simple meals to be had on a Sunday) to eventually arrive on our table, our little angels had long finished their main courses and had started to show signs of boredom even before we had picked up our cutlery! I did approach the lovely lady behind the bar and asked if it was normal to wait such a long time between starter and main courses and she was a little shocked and assured me that this was not a normal occurance. She then swiftly suggested I talked to Gilly who was the manager. Being new to the pub, I had no idea who Gilly may be and so decided that nearly spending the whole afternoon in the pub was quite enough without having to wait around any longer. With this, we left feeling unsatisfied with the service but the food we would recommend...... If you are prepared to wait an unusually longer period of time!

This pub has been very nicely refurbished and we received a warm and friendly welcome. The meals were very good, generous portions - my only comment on the chicken & mushroom pie was that is was very full of filling and would have benefited from a little more sauce in it.That aside, it was very tasty. On the menu, I would have liked a little more choice on the sweets - possibly a cheesecake. Overall, was very happy with the evening and would visit again. Thank you.

Sadly the wait was too long, 1 hr 45 for a roast dinner and when it finally arrived it was disappointing - kitchen had run out of some veg, chicken was dry and the roast potatoes were rubbery. Restaurant wasn't busy and there were no apologies or excuses for the long wait. We were offered free desserts as an apology after we complained but we declined- couldn't bare the thought of waiting another hour for them to arrive! Staff were pleasant and did take £20 off the final bill which was good of them, but sadly too little too late.

Thank you for specially setting up a table for us with enough room to fit the buggy in when we couldn't eat outside because of the wasps!

First class service, so welcoming and could not fault anything. The attention to detail and overall experience was very good indeed. Just wish we lived nearer so we could call it our local.
