    Amazing food, much better than a standard pub. Animals and outdoor play offered a little extra something for kids. We didn't understand why it was so quiet on a Saturday lunchtime! Only negative was that there is no baby change facility in the men's toilets.

    Unfortunately our waitress forgot to come to our table for our drinks order although she did apologise - our two dessert choices / rasp sorbet, lemon sorbet were not available. Our bill was issued and we had to point out that our drinks were not included in the total !!!! Perhaps we shouldn't have been so honest. It was a pleasant evening (an anniversary) but there were some minor unnecessary issues as mentioned above

    There were only one other couple in restaurant, and we only ordered two main courses, but we still had to wait an hour for the food. No explanation was given for delay.

    Superb food and excellent service spoilt only by the shouting and swearing from customers in the bar a few feet away. I was embarrassed for my wife who had to be constantly bombarded by a string of f-words throughout the meal. I realise that this is probably beyond your control but the close proximity of the bar to the restaurant with no intervening doorway suggests that this is probably a regular occurrence and not something I could recommend to friends. I would however reiterate that the food and the service was excellent. Kind Regards. Ronald Brown.

    Went for a Sunday roast. Food was awful. Yorkshires were cold, veg tasteless, nut roast vile, pork was the end piece of it and hard. The children had burgers which contained onions/peppers so the children wouldn't eat them and they weren't cooked in the middle.

Place looked like it needed some tlc food was ok chips very greasy yet other tables had nice chips no people skills for the waitress and she needed a longer skirt not the right length for working where she does and not appropriate being a family pub. Would not go back and would not recommend
