party of 7 ladies of a certain age visited this week for lunch on recommendation of a friend. We could not have been more delighted. The young, enthusiastic staff were quick and cheerful, also very efficient. The food was nicely presented and tasty plus the wine was very well priced. Obviously, this will become a regular meeting place.

Have visited on a few occasions, one time we had the steaks which were lovely, another time we went for homemade pie and chips etc and that was not so tasty. Also been there on one occasion when the whole of the entrance stank of urine which put us off going back. very much hit and miss.

I had the misfortune to call into this pub for a meal at 8pm, while the meal was fine for the money, the experience was completely ruined by a group of small children running around screeching.

Where to start. Been seeing this place slide for months now and it's not getting any better. Ordered the all day breakfast for my daughter and the sausages were cheap disgusting and greasy, the table was sticky and we had to ask for it to be cleaned, very very long wait for food. Toilets are filthy and just a general... More

Had a very pleasant evening last night. A good social pub without the usual hen and stagg tourists and a bottle of rose wine was only £7.24 so good value too. The bar staff were friendly and very efficient and will go again for pre drinks when going on to the theatre etc.

We had a burger and a pint meal in the Washington and really enjoyed it. Good value for money. The pub was showing football so was busy and this led to a good atmosphere. Would certainly visit again
