    First time dining there and made to feel very welcome. Lovely atmosphere, very clean, friendly. Everyone got what they ordered, cooked beautifully and we all enjoyed our mains and desserts. Prices were excellent value. Landlord discovered it was my birthday and gave me a free drink. Will definitely be used often from now on. Excellent.

    Meal was lovely and fair price. Service could of been better with taking away plates before main course come out and cutlery wasn’t on the table. Lady behind the bar was every welcoming and helpful.

    Lovely food and reasonably priced drinks. Only had 1 person on the bar on a Saturday afternoon and with the football on. Felt sorry for the girl. Rather rowdy due to football being on, but we didn't realise that so our bad. Overall I'd def go back, the food was really nice. They just need to sort out the staffing.

    One waitress came out eating chicken from kitchen, quite young, long brown hair. Slammed our food onto the table along with our cutlery. Kept staring at us and giving us weird looks as we left the restaurant. Very strange behaviour. This was on Sunday the 14th in between 4:30-5:30pm.

    On arrival, we were shown to our pre-booked table and told to order food and drinks from the bar. Although the food was served hot, it was of poor quality, with rock-hard, re-heated, roast potatoes. The meat (roast beef) was tasteless, swimming in salty gravy with a Yorkshire pudding and frozen veg. We ordered a side of "3 pigs in blankets " priced at £3.75. When these arrived in a small terracotta dish, there were 5 teeny tiny sausages (at least that's what they were supposed to resemble) wrapped in hard bacon. An absolute disgrace charging £3.75 for this!!At £12.50 for a main course, it was overpriced. Soft Drinks on the menu, 3 of 4 requested, were unavailable too. Won't be going back.

    Visited on a Monday early evening so was quiet. Staff were really welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. I had the Cambodian curry with chicken and it was really good. Will be making a return visit.

    After being showed to our table and no other communication for 35 minutes i went to bar, asked why no one had been to take our order to be told we had to order at bar. We were offered a free drink or dessert for the inconvenience, we took the drink as out first one was nearly finished. Buut surely the waitress could of said if she had made eye contact with us or it been printed on the menu. Then when food finally came out the lasagne was so hot it scolded my mouth. Asked if it was warmed up in microwave and was told only put under grill. I don't think so, it was far to hot to eat or enjoy. Will not be returning at all.

    Our hosts were great but the food was lacking. The parsnips were over cooked and the mash was only cool. The roasters were just shells ,with no potato inside. Won't be going back

    Over an hour wait for food. Live music playing next to us while we were eating. Staff were rude when asked where our food was. Pub was full of regulars standing by us while we were trying to eat. We just wanted to celebrate a family birthday but it was spoilt by the fact if felt like our table was in the middle of a nightclub. We planned to stay for pudding too but we just wanted to get out as fast as we could. Plus the staff made it clear we weren't welcome!

    Had lunch with friends on a Monday so the pub was quiet in fairness. Was greeted upon arrival by Jason who showed us to our table. Food arrived after a short wait and was delicious. We were left to sit quietly over coffee and not made to feel we should leave. Definitely worth a second visit.

    Gammon was really dry. One piece of broccoli and the tiniest amount of mash. Waiter not very helpful, didn't tell us how to order, ask if she needed anything else. Brought the wrong pudding out.

    The food was great and the service was amazing. The order came out quickly and everything was hot. We ordered 3 meals and they all came out together... It was a bit cold when we go there and the fireplace was just put on, the radiators could have been on, which would make it warmer quicker... The staff were really nice and helpful, it was really nice atmosphere and we would definitely go back. The only thing I would say, although the food was really nice, it could have been either cheaper or there could have been more of it for the price... The starter was lovely (creamy mushrooms with garlic bread), but the bread was 2 sticks... oh and last thing - not an awful lot of vegan/vegetarian choices... other than that, perfect place!
