Beer is decent here. The food is OK too, but highly priced for what it is, which is bog standard country pub food. The atmosphere is quiet if not slightly genteel.

To be fair they were perfectly happy (when asked) for us to leave the car in the car park while we had a hike, so some credit for positive customer service.

service was below average and the food leaves a little to be desired compared to the price don't have the gammon because you'll leave more fat and rind on the plate than actual meat for the 8oz as stated overall 4/10 and not to be visited again unless its the last place on earth for a meal and a drink

We went when it was quiet, and the service was a bit random even then, main courses were average but it's worth visiting for the Thwaites a gander's at the incredible revolving dessert showcase!

We have been going there a number times over the years. The food is now back to good quality, but on the last couple of occasions you end up choking on other peoples fag smoke while eating. Do get me wrong we do not mind normal levels of smoke but this place is bad.

It is a very smokey pub and its disgusting when you are trying to eat your meal that you have paid good money for.

You find people from the restaurant 'chainsmoking' at the bar in between courses along with the 'regulars'. All this smoke ends up where people eat the bar snacks due to the low ceilings.Surely they can have a non-smoking section for those are not eating in the restaurant ????

We wont be going there until after the smoking ban comes in which is a real shame as the food and beer are VERY good, but you are minging with smoke when you leave. Hence the 4/10 rating given.

Agree totally about the 'moaning' Landlady. No guard dog required there !!
