We had an enjoyable Sunday lunch in the garden with friends and our three year old twins. The garden and play area were lovely, the service friendly and the roast beef outstanding. There was quiet piano playing which was nice. The staff kindly found and kept safe our son’s triceratops which we lost.

Unfortunately our experience wasn't good. Food took a long time to arrive and when it did ours was already quite cold. It tasted ok. We had the roast. My daughter became ill after eating her children's meal that evening and was sick a couple of times in the night.

The food was lovely, got cold quick but you cant’t help the windy outdoor weather :) the only criticism is the service on the drinks was very very slow. Everything else was very good.

All the servers were lovely except for the manager on duty who was successful in bringing down the mood to our whole experience. I've bn in hospitality for over 12years and never spoke to a customer the way he spoke to me. Unfortunate as we live local and would have liked to become regulars within walking distance.

Hi Candy, Thank you for your review. I believe you booked in for our breakfast menu at 11am, and produced a "Welcome to the area" Complimentary drink voucher that we donated to all new residents. This voucher was only to be used on draft drinks, however we made a special exception for you as you wanted a Gin and Tonic. You then were disappointed that you were not allowed to have "a double" for free. You actually spoke to the owner who would be happy to speak to you again regarding any issues.

We had booked but had to wait 10 mins to be seated . Slow wait for the drinks to arrive as they were very backlogged on drinks orders. Lots of glasses stacked up so clearly they could have done with more staff.
The food that was served was very nice though. But we left quickly after as was too long to wait for another drink.

Really enjoyed our first visit and would definitely return. Was understandably busy and longer than usual waiting times but you have to cut pubs some slack given the current situation. There was plenty of staff and the quality of the food was excellent. Recommended!

We had a fantastic meal for my mums birthday, the staff were helpful and friendly. The food was amazing and I’d definitely go back. My two boys loved the kids playground - a good family pub which catered well around COVID requirements. The sun was shining too

Great pub for families. Food was amazing, though a slightly higher price point (not that it wasn't worth it). Service was a little slow, however considering the restrictions that's understandable.

We called ahead about vegan options and were reassured there were plenty of options however when we arrived 12:30 on Sunday there were no vegan steaks. The vegan kids option was chips and peas and the quinoa stew was impossible to eat without sharp knife and spoon (not provided). Next time will try vegan burger but really hope vegan steak and better salads and kids’ options are available.
Love the venue and staff in general but vegan food could be better. X

The roast dinner was missing cauliflower but had the cheese. I requested no potatoes instead more of other veg, I didn't get any. Almost an hour for the food to arrive between drinks orders.
