Was a little worried when we went into this pub for food. We entered, having walked through a group of men having a cigarette right outside. The bar area felt very "locally" however the bar man caught our eye and greeted us warmly and directed us to the restaurant area. A large selection of tables, many of which had been reserved. The friendly server said choose a table that side, which we did. A good selection of traditional pub fayre with a few specials too. I had the half moon burger and partner chose the pie of the day. It was table service and we did have to wait a little while for a drink. It would have been nice to have been offered a drink when we were seated but that's only personal choice. There were enough people eating to know that we had made a good choice in eating here but not enough to be crouded. My burger looked appitising and tasted good although I felt there was a little too much chargrilled flavour, but yet again that's personal choice. My husband said his pie was good, it looked and tasted homemade. The red cabbage which accompanied it along with parsnips and peas was lovely. It would have been nicer if the same member of staff served us throughout the meal too to give a more personalised service but this isn't always possible on a busy early evening. A good value meal which came to £33 for a pint of larger shandy, pint of coke and two mains.. I would recommend.
This is a warm and welcoming pub/restaurant with a good menu of well cooked reasonably priced meals. Recommended.
We called in on the off chance for the Sunday Carvery. Despite only having Gammon and Turkey left the Meat and vegetables were excellent, probably one of the best Carver's we have had. Real Gravy too.The Value at £10 a head was very reasonable, would recommend and come back again.
