Something must have changed in the management of this pub and it's resulted in a vast improvement. Essential this is a food led pub, and if carveries are your thing this one is as good as any, and you'll have to book.
But this is a beer website. Well they do have a couple of cask ales, not a particularly original choice but served up as they should be

Oh dear, what a mess of a pub. Clearly the owners havent got a clue about either running a bar or catering. They fail miserably on both counts. Although the beers were expensive they were also all but undrinkable, but the food side of things was even worse, possibly the worst pub meal I have ever had (although I havent ever eaten at wetherspoons). Over cooked shrivelled up meat and cold soggy veg. The service was also extremely poor; the girl seemingly in charge was about 16 years old and clearly the poor girl was way out of her depth and should have been doing her school homework instead.
The owners should be ashamed of themselves, and one can only hope this pub goes out of business soon.

odd place, carvery based business. Went on sunday walking past the A board that said food served all day, got drinks for my family went to order food and was told we have stopped serving!!!
Table next to us were complaining about the food, the man said even the peas were over cooked. We stayed to finish our drinks, and watched.
When our neibouring table ordered thier dessert the waitress assured the table the desserts were homemade, and when they arrived they clearly came out of a box.

If i was managing this pub I would also clear up the empty boxes of frozen vegetables from the back door.

A bland pub in all respects. Odd as I never seem to get the same change twice for the same round!!!

Went in as advertised as Under new Management'.Avoid like the plague.Pint of Becks and a tonic spritzer was �11.75....yes �11.75.My wife asked for extrs tonic as they only serve tiny bottles at �1.80 3@ �1.80 is �5.40..absolutely scandalous.
I went for a safe steak as specials board was n/a on several items.My wife had a prawn salad which would have been better presented by my 7 year old granddaughter,even the waitress agreed that it was awful..never again
