We both decided the have the Mussels and bread at just under £9.00 each. The food came reasonably quickly but when it arrived we... More

I've been there many times, it hasn't changed in a long time and the outside is starting to look dated. Could be a really nice 5 star place if someone put there midn to it, was nice and cheap as we attended the thursday carvery, would go back as its local and the staff and well mannered and friendly!

Staff - miserable, surly, abrupt. Food - dried out, not fresh, improperly cooked. Drinks - beer was awful; wine just about average for one, awful for the other. My wife and I had the misfortune of eating here one evening recently. We ordered a steak and a roast of the day. Our meals were dreadful. First to the steak meal... More

Firstly we were sat in the bar and not the restaurant for the meal. When meal came out there wasn't any veg. When we asked for veg and gravy we received a frosty reception. The lamb was fatty and inedible. The potatoes and turkey were frozen. When we asked to speak to the manager we had to wait 15-20 minutes.... More

Decent food, typical high British prices. Ribeye steak was ok but not great. Service was friendly and the beer is good. Dessert was very good.

Had the 2 for 1 lunch, we had bread crumbed plaice, which had good portion of chips and salad. We enjoyed the fish, good value for money. The sweets were £3.95 and can recommend both the spotted dick and the treacle tart, really tasty, good portion at great price. Staff were friendly, efficient and attentive. Very pleasant lunch at an... More

The food is well presented and tastes great! A somewhat limited menu but what is on offer is well worth eaing. We sampled pork and apple cider pie with peas and mash and braised liver in onion gravy with bacon, mash and peas. It contrasts favourably with the overpriced restaurant menu.
