Whoever recruits staff at this bar/restaurant knows their stuff .Staff are welcoming , friendly and efficient . Unfortunately on this occasion the food did not quite match their standards . Faggots were bland and this couldn't be hidden by tasty gravy or improved by average mash and peas .Others in the party were unimpressed by overcooked chips . Hopefully we... More

Have eaten here several times over the past few years - it's never been bad. But never brilliant either. Reasonable value. Menu a little limited but everything cooked pretty well. Works well for families but doesn't really go out of its way for them. More of a couple and adult groups place really. Nothing bad. But nothing outstanding either...

Visited on the off chance and was impressed. I had the fish and wife had the burger. Fish was fresh and well cooked. Burger, according to my wife, was excellent Friendly staff and spotlessly clean.

All options of Sunday roast were tried and none a single complain. Everybody seemed satisfied. I had the nut roast, so I will just talk about what I had. The dish had the... More

We called in on Easter Monday. It was extremely busy as two staff had called in sick. We were quickly served. The two staff were friendly. We had two fish and chips which was delicious.moist fish and crispy beer batter. Two others had rabbit pie which was also very good.
