I ate at the pub on Sunday 24th January with 7 other people.

Since we arrived at 12pm we were the only people in the pub, but it took ages to be asked for our orders. After a good 15 minutes I had to walk over to the bar to get the waitress to come over to the table and take our order. We asked what the Sunday specials for the starters were. The waitress said "I can't remember, I will have to check!", which was not a good start since we were the first customers to ask. The same response came when one of us asked what the Sunday Special desserts were.

I had the Sunday Roast. The portions were big. The beef was tough as old boots, whilst the Yorkshire Pudding was good. English peas were cooked from frozen, the mange tout was undercooked, the Roast Potato was slightly oily yet the new potatoes and carrots were good.

I asked for English Mustard, and a jar of mustard without a spoon was served to me, so I just had to stick my knife into it, and then pass it on. Like being at home!

The nicest part of the meal was the Cappuccino cake served with ice cream. Nice texture and big portion. Their coffee was weak and slushy.

The Sunday Roast special 2 courses was £10.95, which is good value for money.

Overall, I was fortunate that I wasn't paying the bill.

Fabulous pub with very good quality ales and delicious food. Well worth a visit.

Ive enjoyed this pub on the 2 occasions i've visited. Decent range of ales and a good food menu. I'd ditch the radio that stands on the bar in the main eating room though.

The pub itself has been decorated well. The food is well presented and generally locally sourced but disappointing. Frozen garlic baguette which was still cold inside :( Overcooked mussels, many with cracked shells and a thin watery sauce........oh and they don't do home-made chips.....they're those tastless frozen ones. Shame really but plenty of other good food pubs to choose from in the area :-)

Country pub that received the dreaded refurbishment after closure last year. I'm glad to say the pub hasn't been ruined, indeed it's a great place to drop by. As with many country pubs these days, food plays a mjor role in the operation, but not to the detriment of drinkers. It's a long, narrow pub with 2 rooms, the main room is now very smart but with no loss of character. This is the main place for dining, although you can just as easily enjoy a drink here. There are comfy sofas as well as traditional furnishings, all under a low-beamed roof with exposed brickwork and lots of trinkets to keep one interested. A small, seperate room at the end is called 'the Library' and is surrounded by bookshelves with old books, creating a very pleasant and rustic effect. The tap room is primarily retained for drinknig and games, with pool and darts. the real ale situation is very good, with Youngs Bitter and Special (rare in the area) , Copper Dragon Golden Pippin, Tetley Bitter and Mild, and also Black Sheep. Tries both Youngs and Copper Dragon, all excellent. Friendly chatty new owners and service The food looks extremely reasonably priced considering the smartness of the pub, (7-8 for most dishes) and I intend to return to sample it. Really enjoyed my visit- glad to see this place reopened, even gladder to see it in this guise; long may it continue.
