Great to be dining out again. Great service, good sized portions. Overhead heaters not really effective for outside eating but at least an effort was made

Food was lovely, we all had roast dinners where the veg came separately at the side and a good selection, so my daughter got the veg that she likes. The rest was delicious. We had booked an outside table, which was in the marquee. Good for shelter if it were a rainy day. The only thing that could have been better was the service after finishing our mains. We wanted desserts but we sat so long at our table with dirty plates (approx 30 minutes), trying to catch the eye of the waitresses who continued to come to other tables, that we had to go into the pub to pay and left without desserts, choosing to eat instead on our sunny decking at home. This is the only thing that put us off another visit. We put it down to new staff and getting back into service after reopening, so will return in a few weeks time when hopefully the creases are ironed out.

The problem with eating outside is people think it's OK to smoke wherever you like . We were sat with a child eating and had constant smokers around us. We didn't really enjoy the experience to be honest. In my opinion I think smokers should be made to use shelter separately away from tables and have consideration for others. If eating outside is to continue then I think the management should consider non smokers too on a long term basis. Overall the place is lovely, can't fault the food but it has put me off eating again until you can resolve this or eat inside.

Thanks for your review Kelly. We have 2 zero tolerance no smoking areas with cover, heaters with clear signage which is more suited to people wishing to dine outdoors with us during this time. Unfortunately, whilst we have tried our upmost to accommodate everybody, we cannot simply ban smoking on the only area which we have allocated for this. As you can appreciate this is a new, difficult and trying time for everybody in this industry and a review such as this is extremely disheartening.

Ambience excellent, service excellent, drinks excellent, starters and desserts excellent. Steak was a big let down, very chewy for sirloin and over priced. Having eaten steaks at many top restaurants was disappointed, however would definitely return as other food going out to tables looked delicious.

Great food. My linguine was excellent.
Would have liked a drinks menu - hence 4* for service. Other than that brilliant.

Lovely food although whenever we needed something (drink etc) we’d have to wait 5/10 minutes before being able to get the attention of waiting staff.
Music a bit loud which in turn meant loud conversations around you.
Poor selection of ales available with only 1 non alcohol and the waiting staff really didn’t know what they had.

What a pleasant surprise to find such a fine pub in the hidden corner of Walsall. Inside of pub is spacious and few fire places - so cozy. They have their own wood burn pizza oven - we ordered pizza it was absolutely delicious AND massive!!!! beautiful flavour and fresh from oven. no wonder the place is so popular and need 3 weeks advance booking for weekend. Just great place for bite to eat over a pint. i tried their red wine - the concept is more like young wines from new world - easy medium body fun wine. it was reasonably priced too. Combination of good food and drinks - it can't go wrong. Staff were really helpful - nothing was too much problem for them - what a pleasant pub. I will definitely go back
