We had a groupon offer for a nachos & steak meal for 2. The pub is nice & friendly with the added bonus that the rugby was on when we visited. Staff were friendly and helpful and the food was really good. The steaks were good quality and the sides were all well cooked. Definitely worth a repeat visit at...

We bought a groupon deal for a nights accommodation for a family of 4. But to be honest this hotel ( hostel ) would only be suitable for back-packers!! We had music booming through our room until very late - we could feel the vibrations through the floor from the amplifiers! With two young children it was my worst nightmare!!...

From the friendly greeting to the large portions of well cooked food all four of us left feeling that we had made a good decision to visit this pub/restaurant. The four meals we ordered were all nicely cooked and well presented. The fish was really good and...

We stayed here after getting a groupon voucher, it was a bit of a drive but well worth it, the location is great, there is a beach with park and dunes across the road, a short walk to the museums and the city centre. The room was very spacious and clean, the only drawback with having a toddler was it...

Chips are chips yeah? Let's move on. The food was edible, the beer was Luke warm, the decor is dated and cheap, the price of food was except able for the standard, the beer over priced, would return with the boys for a beer run but wouldn't bring the family sub standard for an evening out

Huge portions for a very competitive £9.95!!! All fresh ingredients used! Service was extremely friendly!!!...
