First visit from out of area. Food was excellent. Staff helpful and fun. Was a busy pre - Xmas Sunday early dinner so was filled with kiddies for Santa's visit- a little loud but otherwise a great couple of hours! Definitely would return. Food was excellent for pub food - good restaurant quality. Large portion. No scrimping. Super tasty.

We were a large group for a Sunday, only bugbear was we had to preorder, good service and monster Yorkshire's - what's not to love about that. It was rammed, parking can be an issue
I'll be honest, this was a random stop and one of the best places I've ever been to, the service was amazing, the food was brilliant and well priced.

We’ll be delighted to serve you!

What's not to like...
…service was good, comfortable atmosphere, varied menu and food was lovely (beer battered cod and chips and sausage and mash – would recommend both) and reasonably priced. Friday night they had a live singer who was pretty good too. Will certainly go back.

This is my new favourite place to eat...
We recently visited again to try out the restaurant hidden out the back and again it did not disappoint! Great choice of food on the menu I had a lovely Doverdale and my OH had steak which looked delicious! Service was 5* as always…

Had great Sunday roast there.
The roast lamb was beautifully cooked. The chocolate brownie desert was amazing. The service was very good and fast and the staff friendly. The atmosphere was good and everybody in the restaurant seemed to be enjoying themselves.
