It was a lovely atmosphere and the staff were very attentive.

Mixed review. One starter delicious, other bland. One main overpriced but reasonably tastey, the other "wierd" combination of hot and cold. No dessert. Wine overpriced at £9+/glass without being previously advised. Value questionable. Offered feedback and very gracious response and offer for free return which was appreciated.

My impression of this pub was 'bang average'
The waitress wasn't particularly engaging and was disinterested at best. I booked on a Sunday, where I ordered the highly anticipated 'wellington' only to be told it wasn't on the menu. (once all the other food was served to the table) The 'cauliflower cheese' was a dish of cauliflower with cheese sprinkled over it and grilled, and the 'jugs of gravy' didn't exist (much to the annoyance of the children).
It's certainly not a must go again experience!!!

Responded on September 7, 2020

Thanks for getting in touch, we value all feedback. Unfortunately some of our prices may need to be a little higher to help us and our quality food producers rebuild after a difficult few months and we hope you can understand the need for this right now. We only use the good stuff, so our cheeses are all artisan and our meat free range. We do look at our competition and feel we are well priced for the quality. We are glad you enjoyed, appreciate your support, look forward to welcoming you back.

First evening out since lockdown and was most enjoyable.
Only 4 stars for food because the chips were barely warm. Crab, however, was delicious. Surprised that staff were not wearing masks?
Will definitely return.

Its nice to finally get out a again! Oh that's a shame about the chips Margaret. We owe you a drink- book with us again via our reservations team and we will make sure you receive a drink on us. The government doesn't stipulate that we have to wear masks- although they are available should the team wish to wear them- we look forward to welcoming you back. See you soon!

Fantastic service, amazing tasting food and a nice location. If I could change one thing - it would be to offer Lobster Bisque more often!

Drinks took so long to arrive,they took them off the bill.
Starter took 45 mins and was only a salad
Waited an hour and 15mins for dinner to arrive which didn’t and we were then offered dessert,hence another bottle of bubbles taken off the bill.
2 1/2 hours after being seated dinner arrived only to be well over cooked and returned,this was also taken off the bill accompanied with lots of apologies.

I went to this pub with my wife for a Sunday roast lunch. The food was good as was the friendly and courteous service excepting they had to be reminded to bring the vegetables and a side dish after serving the main part of the meal.
All dishes are prepared and cooked on thee premises to include the baking of all bead to include gluten free bread. Sadly for my wife, a Coeliac they have not mastered gluten free Yorkshire pudding and strangely can't make Gluten Free cauliflour cheese unlike local compitors who make such on the premises. The pub is perfect if you do not have a gluten allergy and pretty good if you do. We did not eat desert so cannot comment on that. Mycwidf did enjoy a start course of Gluten Free soup though.
A good dining venue.

I came hear a few years ago just for drinks and saw the food and really wanted to come back and dine but never too the opportunity until last night.

It was a very nice experience over all, straight away we got seated right next to another couple when the place was relatively empty but the waitress kindly moved us to a place where there was a bit more of a buffer between people. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the place was well lit and the meal was very nice, however I think they could have provided a better variety of salad to go with my steak.

Over all I would definitely consider coming back for a meal.

Christmas meal - Unfortunately everyone at the meal thought their food was warmed up and chewy. The cheese desert was minimal and apple powdery. Ice cream not nice and overpriced. Not value for money. Disappointed all round and surprised by Chequers. Sad to write this but feel it needs feeding back as it wasn’t just one persons view.
