During your meal did the member of staff on shift come to check that everything was ok with your food. Is there any particular reason as to why you should have left after... More

Service was excellent, Andy, who I think was the stand in bar manager, was very attentive even though he was working the bar alone, the experience was lovely and the new chef did a good job considering he...

As you would expect as it is a pub, it was noisy it was also Saturday evening. However, the service we experienced was very friendly. We received our meals quickly and the portions were very large.

Did they actually have anything here? Not got half of the main menu. I ordered a Chilli Con Carne it was two for £10 but it was a very small portion. No jalapinos on as well. There was no comparison to my mates steak pie his portion was a good size. Although the chilli con carne was nice but after... More

Fabulous meal, ordered xmas dinner but due to supplier problems (not the fault of the staff) had chicken instead of turkey. Staff very apologetic and couldn't do enough for you. Staff friendly and welcoming. Xmas decorations fabulous. Made to feel part of the 'family'. A little gem in Crookes.
