Went for a meal and a few beers before we flew. Very close to the airport hotels. Staff very friendly. Food was good and decent sized portion. Couple of ales on which were very nice. Well worth a visit if your nearby

Visited recently and we had made a muck up of the booking but the staff coped brilliantly and cheerfully and made us feel welcome. The food was delicious and hot. The atmosphere was warm and cosy and we weren’t rushed. Will certainly return.

Called in for a drink and lunch but changed our minds after hearing some diners complain. Not a friendly pub by local standards and staff were poorly trained.

As the food at Radisson Blu is a little expensive and not available till after 6.30 we decided to stop here en route to the airport. The food was reasonable priced and very very tasty, even the potatoes which my husband will usually moan about....More

Started just for drinks but we later decided to have food, and when it came to ordering food all 4 people behind the bar were too busy chatting to friends who had just walked in to serve us. Then when asking for a sauce we...More
