    Just a lovely pub. Great food, great staff, great atmosphere. We had a perfect Sunday family roast and the staff were so accommodating to some of our party who have specific food requirements.

    we had excellent food and service but the noise from the TV showing the Rugby was unbelievably loud. There seemed to be 4 people watching it so not sure why they had to blast it. Was a shame.

    Waited awhile to order because lady was busy talking to barman,when food came the chips were covered in rosemary and the burger had no taste what so ever. I had to pay an added 1.50 for cheese but I wouldn't even see the cheese

    Our food was cold on arrival because it was served on cold plates. A table for eight was ordered but only six places were provided. We had to split into two groups. Service was very slow, and at one time rude. They must have realised that we were dissatisfied, as they did not charge for coffee or pit any service charge. As a regular Sunday lunch group, we have eaten there before and always have been pleased. Was it a change of manager, or just a lack of staff?

    We were a mixed age group of 6. I had promised the youngest pizza so it was disappointing that there are no pizzas on Sunday lunchtime. The online menu showed burgers etc as available but those were 'off' on Sundays. There was only a selection of roasts available with a few sides/starters. HOWEVER the food that was presented was tasty, good value and enjoyed by all. While I realise that its not possible to carry a full menu especially on a Sunday, it would have been good to provide the burger option to satisfy the younger diners. The staff were AMAZING. MD
