We visited as a group of 4 for a birthday on a Saturday night. Apart from ourselves there was only one other group eating food, which didn't provide a great atmosphere for dining out. What didn't help was people at the bar shouting and swearing...More

Myself and my husband stopped for late lunch on our way to Doncaster from Warrington, greeted by the friendly and helpful landlord. Delicious home cooked food at very reasonable prices. We will definitely call in again if we are in the area.

Call in here sometimes at lunchtimes for a working lunch. Great food, huge portion sizes at really good prices. Would recommend for good honest home cooking.

Called on a quiet midweek lunchtime. Not many in and quickly ordered. 56 minutes later we received our meal - nothing unusual: just a curry and steak and chips. No complaints about the food, but if we had been told when ordering how long it...More
