Bar full of dirty glasses. Staff ignored me and served several people before me and only to get barred without even having food or drinks. I’ve visited this place twice now and both times have been unpleasant. I will certainly be avoiding it from now...More

Very disappointed to see how awful this pub has become. Dirty, slow service and no ales, despite a discount for camra members.

First pub I have ever visited that allows you to taste the beer but not the wine before buying. Great customer service definitely not!!!!!

Fantastically polite and quick service. Six meals were delivered within 15 minutes all done to perfection. Staff were very friendly and the place was very clean. Wonderful, would definitely go again!
