Outside of the Restaurant, you can enjoy a variety of refreshing drinks from our relaxing Bar area. Sit outside with a vibrant, fruity cocktail when the sun is beaming or place yourself in front of the fire with a glass of mulled wine at Christmas time.

Had a fantastic meal, great service and lovely background easy listening music.
Lovely meal as always, we both had the shoulder of lamb with roast potatoes carrots and butternut squash and thoroughly enjoyed
The food and the service was excellent. The tables were well placed apart.
Myself and my partner visited for lunchtime meal and drink for the first time. Our booking was easy and efficient. The pub was adhering to all the guidelines for the corona virus and we felt safe. The service was excellent and our server was very well informed of the choices available. Overall the food was served quickly, very tasty and well priced. All the staff were welcoming and in particular the landlady was most courteous and friendly. Check out the toilets which are super clean and stylish!
The food isn’t great at all, out of 5 mains only 1 of us actually liked the food.
The ambience and staff are nice but just not that great food
Always a great meal and relaxing atmosphere
Great service, timely and friendly. Well priced wines and a wide choice of dishes. The lamb was delicious, starters were large and tasty.
The Powell was not what I was expecting at all. My partner has warned me several times about the pub and yet everything was lovely- food, the staff etc. He really had to eat humble pie :) we will be back!
The food was amazing and very good value for money. We didn’t feel bloated and miserable but had a good dinner. The other customers were friendly and amiable and the staff were chatty and informative....
Not really complaining but on the night there was no gas for the draft beers and short of Gin choices and got a plate of knifes and forks and told to pass around, I know we have the COVID situation but other restaurants managed to set the table, having said all that it’s a great place to go and there is normally a good atmosphere.
A truly wonderful experience with excellent food which was thoroughly excellent value for money.The service was very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We were down in the area on holiday for the week and if we had found this place earlier we would have gone back again!
Took my family here for my dads 60th for a lovely Sunday roast. The food was fab, service was fantastic, didn’t get the name of the waitress serving us that day but she was amazing, so accommodating, nothing was too much for her. Would highly recommend to others.
Lovely service. Sunday roast was amazing! Asked for more veg between 3 of us. They was more than happy to bring more straight way. Very pleased and will be returning again. Very soon!’
Great service, great food, really lovely pub. The cauliflower cheese that came with the roast was incredible.
Fantastic food, fantastic service. We will definitely be returning.
The food menu had all you'd expect from a pub and was done excellently. The service was also friendly and professional. It was a pleasant experience overall.
Fantastic meal, great customer service with polite, friendly staff. We will definitely be returning.
dined here last night and it was fantastic. delicious food, great service and very well priced. the best vegetable stroganoff I've ever had. my partner loved his pie too - loads of meat in it!
Very nice meal, friendly staff and great value
New Chef very nice meal good sized portions well cooked
bar and restaurant with a fire in each one. Food was gorgeous!
Good service and good food an a pleasant relaxed atmosphere
Everything was delicious but the squid starter was very minimal. We only got 4 small pieces and for nearly £8 you would expect more!
What a fantastic meal,
Great value and very attentive staff
Steak night is a must do.
Last minute booking just wanted somewhere local and never lets us down good food and service
The meal was excellent. Staff very friendly. My only criticism would be that it was'nt overly busy but the service was very slow.
Great food great service very good value for money .
Had the Camembert for starter which was lovely although very salty, it was massive too, so my friend had to help me eat! Followed by the Salmon which was excellent! Too full for a dessert !!
Great quality food and very reasonably priced
The staff are lovely. Food was great my veggie daughter was really impressed which is saying something as she lived in Brighton where she has a huge choice. Would recommend to anyone.
First visit and very pleased with everything. Will definitely visit again.
A lovely bar with an excellent restaurant. All meals delicious and served beautifully. Book a table, you will not be disappointed.
Nice friendly staff and good quality food all at a good price
Very reasonably priced food, but excellent quality.
Very friendly staff and chefs. The food was very enjoyable just as much as the atmosphere. This was for a special event and we weren't disappointed
We had a steak dinner, chips, mushrooms, peas and tomatoes with a bottle of wine for 2 for £30. Excellent value.
We walked in and was met with a warm and welcoming feeling followed by a relaxing atmosphere then showed to our table and ordered special for the day and would do it again mmmm
Really lovely food and good price have booked again
Service was great and the staff were very friendly.
