customers are not welcome -- AVOID THIS PLACE
  1 / 10
Nice looking place and the food looked very nice, we called in for a few drinks decided to leave, not a friendly landlady, in fact I would go as far as to say that the landlady is horrible, quite abrupt and actually offensive. If there was a worst pub award this would be a winner. In fact I will do an internet search and see if we can nominate them.

But I am sure that she does not care less, because they are making a fortune from passing trade.

I have since told dozens of people about the bad attitude of the landlady and how unwelcome it was, i will tell everyone I meet to never go there. It was like being in a pub ran by basil faulty. I have since our visit been told that most local people dont go there because of the hostile landlady ( the barmaid was fine )


This place was a real disappoint because I had driven past it for many years and liked the look of the place and was thinking of planning a group visit there. As you may guess we will never go there again. There are plenty of good places to eat and drink and this is not one of them.

THIS PLACE DOES NOT WANT ANY CUSTOMERS.

excellent food
  10 / 10
We decided to go here for food as we were told the food was excellent.
And we were not disappointed, we both had the rib eye steak and both were cooked to perfection and very tasty. Homemade chips were lovely, and the cauliflower cheese was good too. the staff were very friendly and the food was reasonably priced.
Would recommend to friends and family.

Well worth a visit

We just had lunch there and it was superb. We both had t bone steaks and onion rings and mushrooms and chips. The chips deserve a special mention they really were home made. the staff were courteous and polite. We will definitely be going there again.

Good food, large portions, fair price
  8 / 10
Decided at last moment for my birthday to try out this place ... passed it many times.
Easy to find for strangers as on main Rd, though new bypass means Rd is no longer the main Wales to Birmingham route.
Plenty of parking opposite, alongside their beer garden - which is very popular in the Summer.
Menus is reasonable size ... with a large board of specials ... a few items were 'off' ... but as it's still Winter and mid week - fair enough.

I had duck spring rolls to start, a little disappointing as oily and not much flavorful, I had thought (wrongly) that it would be like Peking Duck wraps, not deep fried.

SWMBO had Steak Rossini .. which is probably the most expensive item, but still going rate at £17 ... It was a very large piece of perfectly cooked fillet ...

I had the 16oz RibEye .... extremely tender and very little fat ..... I'm not a huge fan of steak, but it was certainly very good quality meat, cooked to perfection.

We opted for some Onion Rings & Mushrooms as sides ... and probably shouldn't have ... steaks come with mushroom & onion rings .. so we only managed to eat about 1/2 of the sides which were huge portions.
The Saute potatoes also an immense portion.
In addition there was peas, carrot & swede ................ way too much for us to finish ... you will not leave here hungry.
Not a chance to get to deserts - which from menu looked like frozen pre-portioned items, with some fresh cheesecake & chocolate cake.

The bill - a warning for you, they do not accept debit or credit cards ... which is VERY strange in the 21st century .... there is an ATM, at £1.75 handling charge.
They will accept cheques .. but as these are being phased out by banks ... they made need to re-think ..... at least accept Debit Cards ?

Cost was £52 ... incl 4 soft drinks ... not cheap, but value for money.

There were 2 girls running the place, very friendly & helpful .... genuinely made you feel wanted - you don't get this in a chain restaurant.

All-in-all good food, large portions .... I would go there again.
