This was overall OK. The food was good and plenty of it but very noisy place especially as there was an England/Scotland match. I know huge screen TVs are the norm in a bar, but in a restaurant where people are trying to eat and hold a conversation?

We tend to like to go for a late lunch; after the lunch rush. Service is slow due to the staff talking to the patrons and ignoring checking of orders. You are supposed to queue up at the bar and place your order with a table number and pay as well. Seems reasonable enough, except the local local 'bar flies'... More

Visited with family for pre theatre meal. Atmosphere was nice, food menu choice was good typical pub food but reasonable priced. Kids menu was fab - starter and main with a drink at a very reasonable price. Service for food seemed a little slow and wasn't that busy. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Would visit again but give ourselves... More

They used to have the best veggie burger in town but had the new beetroot burger yesterday and it was so meat like and gelatinous I had to double check the menu that it was actually veggie. The other food was however really good. Really disappointing for me though as I do like this pub, as long as we have... More

Used to be one of the best, if not the best, 'estate' pubs in town. It's gone downhill massively. Beer was average and served in dirty glasses, the head all but disappeared after a few minutes of being poured. Staff not overly friendly and the place looks a little tired. I also noticed it was very quiet for a Saturday... More

Great beer, but awful grub. It's slop that's microwaved. They keep a great pint but fail miserably with their food.

We came here for lunch at a pretty slow time (2pm). After 30 minutes, we waited for food to no avail. Once I complained about the wait, we were told the cook had lost our ticket and had been given it again (I doubt this to be true, as there were 10 customers maximum at this hour, with half of...
