    Nice settings. Food rather average - lacks imagination. My beef ale pie had heavy soggy pastry.

  • ((((( 15 November 2016 by Jean Owen from Faversham Kent

    Nothing really much to say. The meals are great. Once I had a roast dinner at 6pm. I wouldn't recommend that meal at that time of day, as the potatoes were soft & the stuffing was dried up, but apart from that, everything is fine

    Lovely atmosphere, clean and the staff were fantastic. My only criticism would be is that my dad ordered the steak medium rare and he said it was probably well done.
