I would not recommend eating at this venue. Disappointing - basic menu - overpriced. Staff not very helpful. Did not stay for a meal.

Went to this pub two days in a row! The food is amazing for a pub restaurant, even the bar menu food was fantastic and reasonably priced. Cocktails were also delicious. Saturday night there was a local band playing for entertainment outside which perfected the balmy summer night atmosphere.

This is a traditional style pub in the sense you are seated by a hostess but go to the bar to order food and drinks and you serve yourself for water. The food was not great, stay away from the fish and chips. It consists of three small, flat portions of fish, which tasted awful. The best part of the... More

Great food and great chilled ale. I had the fish with chips and salad and found it had a lovely flavor. The meal was large enough for me, bearing in mind the heat of the day outside. Slightly uppish in price, but it is always busy, as this was our second visit there. Really, it is a gold mine above... More

What a terrible experience. It started when I enquired what was the fish of the day. When the waitress said it comes with veggies, I asked could I get salad and chips. No she said. I thought, it's February and it's 40deg. Fish and veggies for lunch? Really ? We ordered the lamb pumpkin salad which was ok, the steak... More

The service was really good, food came out quickly despite being the middle of a busy lunchtime, and the food was delicious. As a pub restaurant you can understand the atmosphere can be a mix of drunk and rowdy. We were seated amongst a few rowdy tables so were happy to leave when we finished our meal.

breakfast was awesome, however, dinner options terrible, Chicken was dry and tasteless, and stingy on size and even down to amount of chips on the plate, the "salad" is the typical small handful of mixed lettuce and soggy tomato and cucumber drowned in a dressing, and no option to swap for veggies. I am ok to "over pay' for a... More

We just fancied a pub style meal. The menu was varied and interesting. We all decided on the steak and Guinness pie with mashed potato and broccolinl. It arrived promptly and was piping hot and very tasty. Wide selection of draught beers and wines.
