It was Very quiet , so i am just basing my review on the service and food as i don't know what it would be like if busy . The young lady that served us was excellent, she had a good sense of humour and was very efficient at her job . We placed our order for drinks and food , drinks arrived within in a couple of minutes, our meals arrived about twenty minutes later and it was well worth waiting for , my wife had the lasagne with chips and garlic bread and i had the hunters chicken it was lovely hot and so tasty , the portions were excellent,. I will definitely be eating there again as it was value for money and a great eating experience

Not the most expentensive menu so choice is limited and as they had stock issues with several menu items not available choices were more limited. The pub wasn't busy so would expect the service to be better and sharper.
Food supplied was OK but not brilliant. Large portions are OK but the food needs to be better.

We ate early so not very busy. Carvery had just started, had to wait quite a while for the vegetarian option, not particularly hot, just very basic pub grub.
Someone came in with a dog, I personally don't think they should allow in an eating area
Staff were very helpful and attentive.

This was a meet up place halfway between my home and where a friend was on holiday so just found on Google maps. Didn't think the menu was very imaginative but actually the gammon dish was very good. Excellent fries and we were given green beans rather than peas which I'd say is a bonus!
Pretty quiet and friendly waitress.

Had better Sunday lunch. No mash potato, well overcooked roast potato, generic gravy. On the plus side, nice meat, dog friendly.

Service was good however the menu was limited.
Most starters were not available, no prawns or mushrooms so we all had to have brie wedges.
Carvery was good but presentation could be better
Desserts were excellent and waitress was very good so will be back

We had a lovely time, found all the staff very helpful and accommodating. Two of us had the carvery and were very impressed. The third person had the hunters chicken of the normal menu and thoroughly enjoyed it.
