                                                            Absolutely lovely roast dinner for both adults and children. Really generous portions and a wide range of vegetables, including leeks in cheese sauce.

                                                            Quite typical English pub food. Nothing out of the ordinary but quite acceptable. However, very poor for vegetarains and do not bother if you're a vegan. A menu that lacks imagination but similar to most pubs in England. Service was ok from the lady serving although an item was forgotten. Bar server was busy on her phone which left me standing at the bar for 5 minutes before she looked up!

                                                            The restaurant had probably 5 occupied tables yet our drinks were forgotten, we waited 20mins to be asked if we wanted dessert in the end we asked twice more for dessert menu. When we couldn’t decide on a wine and asked ‘which one would you recommenced?’ We were told by waitress ‘I don’t know I don’t drink wine?’ Asked waiter/Barman ‘where are the toilets?’ to be told ‘I don’t know’ and he walked away, no attempt to ask someone else or help us look. When we ordered we asked for extra toppings as per menu option only for a more senior member of staff to come to the table and question if we really meant to add the extras. We made to feel a stupid asking for Brie on top of a steak. It wasn’t a ‘special’ request it was an option on the menu. Food was mixed, 2 out of 4 of us really enjoyed our food. Personally my chicken was really dry and the bun was burnt. One of meals came out wrong (new potatoes rather than mash) although this was rectified quickly. I personally wouldn’t return and I wouldn’t recommend. We were served by 3 members of staff and each as poor as the rest so the excuse ‘oh he is on a trial’ didn’t really excuse the poor service when we mentioned it. Can’t blame it being busy as there was 4 staff and about 20 people using pub and restaurant combined. Can’t blame one member of staff having an off night as we was served by 3 staff members.

                                                            The building has a lot of character and the staff were friendly and obliging but we found the food tired and disappointing, especially after the promising on-line reviews we had read. The “welcoming committee” of regulars in the bar were a bit intimidating.
