Visited a couple of weekends ago, after not being here for many years. It definitely seems more food-led than it used to and has possibly had a bit of a refurb since I was last there.

It was a nice sunny day so busy outside in the beer garden but less so indoors. I fancied trying the cider but apparently they had a fault with the chiller so none of the draught (keg) beers or ciders were available, so cask it was to be. As is typical of Greene King food led pubs, the cask ale selection was not very exciting, but my two pints of Old Golden Hen slipped down nicely.

March 2016. Party of 13. Pre-booked & pre-ordered. This public house continues to evolve from the traditional dingy, dark, drinker's paradise of yester-year to a modern light and nice decor ed eatery. The menu is comprehensive and every food stuff you would expect from a pub is available and the prices are reasonable for the area. The quality and quantity of food available was very much as you would expect and very tasty. Only issue was that the plates were not pre-heated and so the temperature of the food was affected. Not a problem if you are a conveyor belt eater but if you like to savour and take your time then the meal could be cold by the time you are finishing the final morsels. More a comment than a complaint. Deserts were also the traditional expected and those who partook were happy enough. Drinks available were standard and reasonably priced. Service was courteous and efficient and would certainly consider returning again.
