Pub was very quiet.... so little or no real ambience.
Good range of drinks.
Lovely outside seating area I was unaware of.
Lovely atmosphere and overall ambience. Fantastic location. Food was great and reasonably priced. I would definitely go again and/or recommend it.
Amazing food as always, one day I will get the recipe for the raspberry milkshake cheesecake. Please???
The food was very nice and hot there was quiet a wait in between starters and mains but it was worth the wait puddings were quiet quick.The surroundings were very nice if I had to moan about anything it was the fact I booked through the central booking office and I had conformation back for 1900 hrs. On Sunday evening we arrived to be told our booking was 1930hrs. So they put us right by the kitchen and every time any one came through the entrance door we got a blast of cold air on our legs.
Warm welcome from friendly staff, good menu choices, generous portions, greta taste. And a good range of beers.
We took our puppy with us, the staff were lovely and helpful and couldn't have made us feel more welcome. Delicious food and ambience x
Very friendly service. Comfortable setting for a meal. 3 of our 4 meals were beautifully served , very appertising and excellent value. However the ham, eggs and chips appeared to have been put on the plate without any thought, it looked bland and unappetizing. It was well below the expected standard.
The pub is lovely and staff are very welcoming but our Sunday meal was luke warm and the beef very tough Pudding was lovely Will go again and hope the food is hot next time
Really nice food and atmosphere. Would have been 5/5 if service was a little better/faster for ordering. Saying that they were training new staff from what I could see.
Great pub. Loads to choose from.Went with husband had the shared platter for starters. Fillet steak was amazing and the sherry triffle best I have ever tasted. Great friendly service . Great for any occasion
The food was excellent, but spoiled by the fact that the service was extremely slow. It seemed like we waited about 45 minutes between courses.
We booked from a set £20 for 3 courses menu but when it came time for dessert 2 people ordered cheeseboard and after waiting another 15 mins were told there was no cheese. As they can not eat puddings they could not order anything else off the menu, so we were told that we would have to pay off the normal menu as we had not had the 3 courses (mad being charged more for eating less!!) After words were exchanged the waitress said we could still pay the £20 for just the 2 courses and then over charged us anyway. Further exchange of words with the manager and finally paid what we should have been charged once he altered the bill twice!!
The services was really bad, such a shame as the food was excellent
A great menu with wonderfully prepared and tasty food let down by poor service.
Visited the establishment on Sunday and despite booking several hours earlier, so they knew we were coming, we were taken to a dirty and sticky table. Our drinks order was taken and we were then advised that they only had the lamb and vegetarian roasts left – not great for a Sunday! The two drinks we ordered took almost fifteen minutes to arrive during which we had another member of staff ask us if we would like to order drinks – when we said we had already ordered she checked her phone and noted that she could see we had ordered. Surely she should have checked this before asking. The mains did arrive in good time and were extremely tasty and well prepared – 10/10 for the food. As the food arrived my partner asked for some mayonnaise – this took over ten minutes to arrive by which time my partner had finished most of her meal.
As we finished our main course the plates we cleared away and our waitress asked if we would like to see the dessert menu – we advised that we would and she kindly said she would bring the menus over. After fifteen minutes of waiting for the menu to arrive (during which time the same waitress passed the dessert menu to other tables) we gave up waiting and decided to leave.
As we paid the bill we were asked by the waitress if we had enjoyed our meal and we voiced our opinion on the slowness of service. This fell on deaf ears as the waitress didn’t offer any form of recompense or ask if we would like to speak to the manager.
Such a shame as it is a lovely country pub with some great food but it obviously needs new management, or at least someone managing the floor, to raise standards.
