What a great pub! Visited yesterday evening on the year's first comfortable sitting outside evening. Sadly, they have just discontinued the Gale's HSB but the Fuller's London Pride and Gale's (Fuller's) Spring Sprinter were in great shape. As well as fine beer and very friendly staff the food was good, too! Partner had grilled squid followed by the trout special, and I had the lentil and bacon soup followed by leg of rabbit stew. Delicious! And sitting outside was a bonus!

Had lunch at this pub on several Saturdays during the summer. Great burger and chips in nice garden. Went back in mid-week recently (November) for dinner with mates, and again the food was excellent. Pie and mash, pork belly, fish and chips. Not cheap but good value. Friendly staff and good beer. Will def go back

We visited for the first time since we turned up to find the fire brigade in attendance. The two doors, at right angles and with a table in the lobby, made wheelchair access difficult; I don't think a full-size chair could have got in at all. We only managed thanks to a kind stranger who assisted. The bar was warm with a good fire. Orange juice was served from a second-hand pop bottle presumably to disguise its supermarket origins. A glass, at £2.75, cost nearly three times what a litre would have cost at Waitrose. The HSB was good, but at £4.00 a pint was the most expensive I have seen. The food: rough. My fish and chips had been chucked into the deep fat fryer before it had heated up. The result was that both were greasy. A small frozen cod fillet, small portion of chips and a dish of mushy peas for £11.50. Madam chose the ploughman's. The blue cheese, which she can't eat, was swapped for a cheddar of the type one gives to small children. Two chunks of bread, white and granary, were dry and eaten only because she was hungry. The ploughman's cost an amazing £13. My complaints "Would be passed to the chef". No apologies or excuses were offered. The HSB was good or my rating would have been lower. We won't be back.

This pub is now fantastic. The garden is great and the play area very,very good. We shared fish and chips ( fish was cooked extremely well), the 5 cheese board-4/5 different types of cheese with biscuits and grapes and apple, lovely fresh home made onion rings and a small salad. Really enjoyed it and was very happy as it all came in at slightly over 20! And we were stuffed.
Got to say the have really brought this place up to a very good level and is now probably our favourite local pub by quite a way.

THIS PLACE IS FANTASTIC. We had the pleasure of Saturday lunch with friends and our young kids at Easter here. The staff and ambience is wonderful, the food was excellent and the landlady really went out of her way to make us feel home from home, the Easter Egg hunt was very, very generous and the skittle alley is a very warm, welcoming room that's an excellent space for a private hire. Add to all this is one of the best outside play areas for the kids.

A quality, quality pub!
