    We had to ask for menus after sitting at table for 10 minutes . I had pre booked a high chair but had to get it myself.drinks were very slow although the place seemed fairly quiet. The roast beef was so tough we had to ask for steak knives to cut it . We asked for the toddlers ice cream to come out first as he was getting fidgety ; it came last! We were served tea with no milk . The tea had gone cold and had to be replaced by the time I found a waitress to bring some milk. We have eaten her on several occasions but will never go back

    Our table wasn’t ready when we arrived. After ordering 7x roast dinners we were really disappointed when they were all cold and had to be sent back. New member of staff serving us - she coped really well! Like the offer of additional roasties & Yorkshire Puds. The puddings were delicious

    Such a lovely evening. Staff, amazing (as always). The menu isn’t so long that it addles your brain trying to choose, but definitely interesting enough for all! Lovely atmosphere, and the team make you feel like you’re the only people in there. Attentive but not in your face, friendly but know when to step back and leave you to enjoy. The attention to detail from the chefs should also be applauded. Genuinely love this place.

    Took a work colleague for dinner, great atmosphere and the staff were exceptional. However the food - from the specials board - wasn't up to scratch. Disappointing, and a shame for the waiting staff who were really excellent. I know it's a good enough place that this may just have been an off night though. I didn't complain at the time as it was a work related dinner (and I'm British).

    Went to enjoy Traditional Sunday Roast...Atmosphere is nice, table for 2 in the bar. Out of 2 starters the tart was not fulfilling the expectations visually, out of beef and pork roasts - beef was ordered well done- but arrived rather dry, next time I'd order raw! Yorkshire puddings: too hard , I'd change the recepe as i prefer them soft. Lovely pub though!
