Great meal, really attentive service in very nice surroundings. We were a party of 8 and I provided the meal selection ahead of arriving as we were on a tight time scale, all meals delivered on time and all the party were really pleased. Great overall experience - thanks team.

Good quality food well-presented. Two functions were also booked for this afternoon, so the staff were very busy and there was some delay in being seated but the manager had everything under control. A positive experience and we will be going again.

Excellent service together with excellent food. Good choice of menu with something to suit most people. I had a rack which was very good. One of my friends had the belly pork which looked delicious. Would recommend it.

Again the food was OK and the pricing fairly competitive, but the service is nothing to write home about, we always go when they are not busy but it still takes way too long to be served. On this occasion we were served only 2 of the 3 meals ordered!

Great food and great choice beers. Service was generally good from young staff. Natalie particularly good and attentive, switched on and aware of customer service. The extension area is lovely. Will return soon.

Don't think we will be coming for a return visit in a hurry. Table was booked for 1pm and our order was not taken until at least 1.30pm. When eventually our food arrived one starter was missing with no attempt to ask if another was required just a free dessert which by the time we got through our main course we had no time for. As for the main course... the chicken was cooked way too much that it was dried out, and the burgers were very dry too. Definitely not impressed sorry to say.

Waited over an hour for food. Had to ask someone to take our order after 35 minutes of looking at the menu and when the girl came to is, she was rude. That being said, food was lovely! I hope it was just a one off... the place has recently been extended so hoping they haven't given themselves too much to handle..

The food was good and reasonably prices. The service was OK but not anything special. We had booked a table and the place was empty and we still asked if we had booked and were made to wait before being shown to a table!
