Me and my mate where on a walk and half way back to Newmiller Dam, when we stopped at the pub for a pint......The limited staff where really busy dealing with food bookings, however the manager who was also busy sorting guests into the restaurant, found time to serve us drinks outside, and chat about the pub. After a while he asked if we wanted another , we said yes and HE bought us 2 more Guiness.....we weren't expecting that, however a lovely gesture by him.
That kind of service is rare these days

The girl who took us to our table was very polite and said she would close off the door next to our table & divert people through another door as two people were sat quite near so when anyone came in & it was a bit too close, however a chap who seemed to be in charge told her it was a fire door and had to be left open? He was a bit short and looked at us as if we’d requested this.
Anyway the service was good and the food all arrived all at the same time and was really nice apart from the onion Bajees which were very dry and not much taste. The desserts were lovely except we ordered the eaten mess and then the waiting staff said it had sold out ( to be expected on a busy sunny day). All in all a good experience and good value for money. We did laugh though as we left, my son in law sat waiting for the bill and the manager or owner saw us leave and shot back in thinking we were leaving without paying. Sign of the times I suppose.

Been many times before and always had a lovely experience with great food. Can't say the same for this meal purely because of the arrogant manager or owner with the bright white hair and matching skinny jeans. Was rude from the off, embarrassed the staff repeatedly in front of customers, and refused to allow us to be sat in the sunshine (as requested at time of booking) because "all the other tables were booked", they clearly weren't, over 20 tables free and remained empty the entire afternoon. Absolutely no reason for it other than a power trip, if anything did them out of business as we would have stayed for a few hours longer drinking. Aside from that, all other staff very helpful and polite and food was as good as always.

Lovely food, lovely pub, shame about the RUDE manager with blonde hair (name eludes me). Atrocious customer service from him, great from everyone else there.

Booked lunch for four. We sat in the rear garden under an umbrella with heaters and it was ideal. There was a normal and a tapas menu and we ordered from both. Service was excellent and we all enjoyed our meals. We will come again
