    My family and friends had a gorgeous evening, the staff were friendly and welcoming , ?? Despite being busy, we were found alternative seating when our meal was finished and our group became smaller

    Lovely conservatory area to dine - right on high street. Happy that they offer some vegan dishes(shame no desserts) - disappointed that the food was cold on serving (not just the vegan dish) and also getting a coffee at the end of the meal proved difficult too.

    Overall the dining experience was good. We ordered the Roast Beef and the Roast Pork and some Padron Peppers to start. We did ask that the peppers would be served as a starter but everything came out together which was a little disappointing. The roasts could have been a bit hotter, food was just warm. We asked for some more gravy which was also just warm and a little watery. Would have been nice to offer some apple sauce with the pork. Service was very good both at the bar and at the table. We will be back as this is our local pub.
