Disappointed, booked table in person when arrived they denied all knowledge of booking. They found us a corner table eventually. We ordered starters which never arrived. Burger was over cooked but on positive side ribs were good.More

As you can gather from the rating and title we enjoyed this place. Looking for a good feed with quality food and some USA side dishes then recommend The Pub. Entrees are huge so good luck getting through all the sides etc. Service was A1.
