There were 8 of us that ate here the other night, we hadn't been here for a long time but were really pleased to see that the food was still really good. My brother decided to have the ice cream sunde which was the only thing that left a lot to be desired. It was small & tasted like garlic... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us Angela. We were pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit here, just sorry to hear about your brother's Sunde. I have passed your review onto the kitchen so they can work out how or why it tasted of garlic! Look forward to serving you again :) More

Nice place to eat. Seems to be popular with locals. Good menu of pub style grub. Had a nice steak wrapped in bacon. Lots of beer choices.

me and my friends had a booking, and you would expect some helpfulness from staff whether we were a booking or not but we weren't treated very well. Friends were completely ignored by the manager at the counter who moved to a separate till when they were next in line and offered no apology or explanation. We were all sober,... More

Hi Angus, I am very sorry that you had a long wait for food. I remember you and your group only because you arrived 45 minutes late for your booking just after our other large group who we had booked in 30 minutes after your original booking time so that there wouldn't be a wait on food. The kitchen was... More

I'll state straight off that this isn't my usual type of place to eat at, we were given a voucher as a gift. We usually eat fresh homecooked meals and when we eat out we usually expect to eat food that tastes even better than that. This definitely wasn't. The chicken caesar salad I had was okish, but the schnitzel... More

Thank you for your feedback. We were sorry you didn't enjoy your experience at our establishment. We are also very surprised to hear you didn't enjoy the Ceasar and the schnitzel, which are our 2nd and third most popular dishes. They are both made fresh to order and the schnitzel cooked for your order. Our gravy is homemade and we... More

The best pub meals anywhere by far. Good value also, staff are friendly & welcoming. Good selection of beers, nor sure on the wines(wife's dept.). My favourite is the squid rings, wife's chicken filae. Reduced prices on Mondays also except public holidays of course.
