6 people booked for Sunday roast at 130. Only 2 left! All food took over an hour to arrive and bar staff were miserable. When food arrived it wasn't great. Won't be returning.

I am a local and have been coming here with chums, regularly for a couple of years. The food is reasonably priced and decent, there are plenty of ale, cider etc. choices. The landlord and landlady are lovely and the service is quick.
