We are not a ‘fancy pants’ establishment. Not in the least. We offer good quality, home-cooked, locally sourced (where possible) food. 90% of our menu is made on the premises. Certainly not ‘Pub Grub’ but not ‘Gastro Pub’ either. It’s good value for money. However, our standards are high, very high. Not only in the quality of the food that comes into and leaves the kitchen but also in the presentation, the delivery to the table and overall customer service. We’re definitely not ‘Silver Service’ either but all of our staff are attentive, smartly dressed and will always go that extra mile wherever they can. These are just some of the reasons we were awarded the Taste of the West GOLD award in 2019.
We are a dog friendly establishment, very dog friendly. However, please tell us at the time of booking so that we can place you in our Bar area , as opposed to our Restaurant.

    Two unruly and very loud children in the restaurant. Parents did nothing to curb their behaviour. Was much nicer once they had left. However, we still had an excellent Sunday carvery.

    We had an incredible meal here on Saturday, the service was fantastic & the food you could not fault. The steak I had was cooked to perfection & the stilton sauce was amazing. Great value for money with a great choice on the menu & the specials board. Can’t wait for a return visit.

    We come here quite often and have never had any issues, but unfortunately when we went on the 13/02/2024 for my father’s birthday it wasn’t up to the previous standard. Most of the food was good but I had the special of Flat Beef Rib which was advertised as falling off the bone and came with bacon and mushroom sautéed cabbage. When I ordered I asked if I could have the sautéed cabbage without the mushroom, which wasn’t a problem…but about 2 minutes before we received our main courses they came and told me that the cabbage is already made so they couldn’t remove the mushroom, this immediately told me it was not being made fresh for each plate which I would have expected from this establishment and being that half the table had mains already I couldn’t change my decision so I was offered red cabbage and peas which just came splat dashed on the plate and wasn’t appetising at all. The beef was quite tough and the mash wasn’t creamy, was very disappointing. Then to add insult to injury they charged me for a whole bottle of white wine instead of 250ml. I would have recommended this place but after my last visit I wouldn’t.

    I've been searching for something that I don't like about this place. More on that later. This is an extremely busy pub/restaurant and you can see why. The locals obviously know a good thing when they see it and I totally agree. The service was top level, the food brilliant and the hotel really nice. There is a large car park, seating out front and lots and lots of tables inside. The carvery was exceptional (so often they can be disappointing) I had a burger which was delicious and the kids meal my granddaughter had looked great. Special shout out to the waitresses who were brilliant, especially with kids. I also saw them go the extra mile to seat a family with someone in a wheel chair. What didn't I like? Well the sugar in the bowl was happy shopper/Litchfield stuff (I don't take sugar) and there was a noisy road out the front (which you can't hear from inside) So full marks from me. I can be difficult to please so feel it is ultra-important to recognise when someone has got it right.
