i could not work the app to order drinks and food online (but that was probably due to IT issues my side). for the food (we had two burgers meals and two wraps meals), there were too many chips (which were over salted), and the meals could have done with a salad. the burgers were delicious and very filling, and the steak wraps were really tasty!

The best fish and chips I’ve had for ages , beautiful light and thin batter. Lovely sit in the sun outside, second to none service. I guess the voucher I was issued at Christmas is still valid ?

Great service, lovely food, we were seated away from the main area on our own so felt a little isolated as it was quiet on that bad weather day, the food was top notch so a little more expensive than normal pub grub.

We are locals and haven’t been in for a little while having really enjoyed the steak nights previously, the menu and food have developed well. Service was attentive lovely meal we have already recommended to friends excellent as the culinary bar is raised again in a village with a few good restaurants. We particularly loved the cod starter with scotch’s egg and the 3 ways pork main course both stunning

Excellent Sunday lunch with generous portions and good choice of vegetables. Only marked down to four stars for atmosphere because it seemed a little quiet because of people being wary of public spaces because of Covid. We will be back!
