Visited earlier this month, with my daughter -both of us ordering Sunday roast beef. The beef was the toughest most rubbery meat I have ever eaten ! I'm fairly sure it was Beef -just uncertain how it was 'cooked'! We would have sent it back, but being hungry and having waited a fair while for it to arrive, we ate... More

Friday evening with my wife, for a quick and somewhat inexpensive meal. Must say that we weren't disappointed - the food was okay (in fact I would describe it as slightly more than okay), the service was fine for a pub, but the ale was first class.

This pub seems to fall between two stools. It's not sure if it is a pub which serves food or a restaurant which allows people to go in for a drink. Unfortunately the prices reflect the latter. The prices are quite expensive for the type of standard pub food it serves. The food is generally good, and the service is... More

Amazing Sunday roast, brilliant service, great atmosphere. Would highly recommend. I was visiting friends for their little boys 1st birthday. They had organised a buffet for friends and family to get together on the Saturday afternoon which was brilliant. Then we went back for a roast on the Sunday. Very impressed.

We've eaten here several times, and the previous time we said would probably be our last, but as it is local to us and we saw their menu has 'improved recipes' we said we'd try again. Oh dear. What a mistake. I had a burger, which was ok, and my partner had the lamb stew which was dreadful. The waitress... More

Visited with family for dinner, wanted to go to another pub initially but the other pub was rammed, so decided to give Moss Trooper a go, huge mistake! The decor of the pub looked lovely, seating was comfortable enough, also shows football, staff also seemed cheery and friendly. We sat ourselves down and looked at their menu (standard jwlees pub...
