Nice refurbishment looks fresh but very over priced for what you get drinks very expensive the staff definitely need more training. I'd say it's a lack of good management.won't be returning and will not recommend to anyone.

You cannot book a late lunch on their website,you would need to call them to make a reservation. We arrived at 3.30pm and the restaurant was quiet, just a few families finishing their lunches. Nice menu, but quite limited. Good service. Food was slow coming out from the kitchen, however as we were not in a hurry this was perfectly... More

My wife and I have eaten here twice the first meal was a 100 day steak which was very tasty. The second meal was off their normal menu which was below average and expensive.

This place has be refurbished to a really good standard. That's where the positives end. Booked for a Christmas work lunch for 6. On arrival, we were told that we hadn't preordered Christmas lunch and therefore couldn't have it (by the manager). Made us feel like we had lied about our booking. Waitress persuaded us to have the pie as... More

Used to go to the Anglers Retreat occasionally so thought we would give this a try, we were not disappointed, the service was excellent and the food was very good. However, it is quite noisy and very family friendly, which is great if you have kids, they are very well looked after. The food was very good, however it is... More

I liked the new de-cor and the food and service was good...could not fault the steak I had however,what lets the Retreat down was having to pay extra for chips...hello!! this is a Gastro Pub if they persist with this current price charging they will find difficult to compete with other Pubs near them.
