“The food was good the service was good, had plenty to eat and drink,out celebrating my mum and dad’s 50th wedding anniversary.” March 2017


“Called in unexpectedly, having not wanted to wait 30-40 minutes at a ‘chain’ restaurant and am very glad we moved on. This is a proper unpretentious British pub with good quality food, pleasantly presented and plenty to eat. They were willing to change the food slightly to our request and there was no delay in it arriving. We have already decided to return next month and think I will be back to sample the Sunday Lunch too. Also the recommended local bitter was very good indeed.” March 2017


“This is one of the best ‘local’ pubs I have visited. We were there for Friday lunchtime and then again for Sunday lunch. At both times we were welcomed by enthusiastic staff to the tables we had reserved in the bar area. The choice of traditional pub food and a selection of specials was better than expected. I liked the selection of local fish dishes. The value for money is exceptional and then the availability of cask ale makes this a special place to eat and drink. This is not fine dining but a very good traditional pub with great pub food.”  March 2017


“10 of us arrived for a late lunch with no notice and were warmly welcomed. A delicious pint of Harveys ale and tasty Thai fish cakes went down a treat (and very reasonable too!) Thank you”  February 2017


“Really good food, staff attentive and friendly. Even though the restaurant is always busy have never had to wait too long for the food. Jan 2017


I went for Sunday lunch, on the 5 February, two of us had Sunday Lunch which was excellent, one other had liver and bacon, which was also delicious. The staff were very friendly and the young man serving was as always, very pleasant and very good at his job. Deserts were very good potions, and atmosphere was good, children looked welcome. All in all we had a lovely lunch! Thanks very much!”  February 2017


“Went for lunch and then dinner the following day as in the area. All staff were very friendly and attentive. Good quality, traditional pub food. The staff took care of a friend is a vegan, whilst having a good selection of meat and fish. I had fish and chips – lovely fresh fish. Very traditional interior. If you want a lovely traditional pub then this is the place.”  January 2017


“Went for lunch on a Wednesday. The place was buzzing. On entering the pub, we were welcomed by the staff who were pleased to see us. Good choice of drinks available and a menu to suit most tastes. Despite being busy, our food was served after a short wait. All the staff know their roles and are professional in their manner – a real change from a lot of places we have visited! Well recommended.”  January 2017
