Booked a table for the 13thDecember through you a week before we went for 4 of us. After driving there , which took us an hour, we were told we could not eat there as they had a party of 60 arriving soon for a Christmas Party! They sent us to the Smokers Inn about 2 miles away. The food was ok but it was not what we booked for and we're very disappointed. This was a present for our friends Silver Wedding Anniversary and we feel very embarrassed and unhappy.

The service was great, no complaints but the food was not great. The fishcakes were described as having too much potato and the peri peri chicken was very dry. The chips some seemed o be undercooked and others were soggy.

Having been there a few months ago when we had a great meal and great service we thought we would give it another try. We had a Groupon deal which was excellent value. Once again the food was lovely. Lots of choices for starters and mains but only 3 choices for dessert. However, what will stop us from returning is the appalling service and horrendous attitude of one of the female staff. I have never experienced anything like it. I don't know why she was particularly unpleasant when we paid the bill but it certainly left a bitter taste to the whole experience. Never again!

Wasn't cosy and a group of very loud drunken youths spoilt the atmosphere of the evening with no obvious intervention from the management. We were served by a very nice young waitress who seemed nervous about the youths. The starter was delicious but the main course all came separately over about 10mins. So overall not a good experience.

If you want a typical Sunday lunch make sure you check what is on offer. On the Sunday we visited we weren't told by the server that there was a Roast meal option. We understand that a new menu was in progress to rectify that problem
