Been here a few times now and I like it for 2 small reasons. 1. Being the customers are nice and a good diverse mix. 2. Cheap beer is available.

However this is where it ends. The staff are rude, as Paul . H. found out in his review. They do not know how to handle a bar and have no idea who is next. The staff are not friendly at all unless they know you. If they know you, then you can push in the queue and demand a beer and they will get it over waiting customers. They often stand around chatting while you wait to be served. Beside the kit hen doors is a table often frequented by friends of the staff who always get preferential treatment and plenty of freebies when no one is around.

In summary if you want to be served which, in line and with a smile then this is not for you. If you want a cheap beer, don't mind a grunt and a splosh down of the glass, waiting for your turn to disappear and others push in in front of you, no thanks or politeness then you will really love this place.

this was the nearest place to eat from where we were staying , so we gave it a go, the steak, chips, orion rings etc were great really enjoyed it, my drink should of been included in my meal but i was told it wasnt, in my local place which is the same pub it is so was a little annoyed as should of said when i ordered it, the place was warm and the staff were very nice, the only down side was our afters, my friend had ice cream and chocklate cookie ice cream and it was so dry she took it back and was given a refund, i had the apple crumble and custard, there was a funny taste i kept getting a chalky film in my mouth and the custand was so thick and hardly any of it i gave up and pushed it to one side, was shame as the main meal was so nice

Partially cooked fish... I started at the warm end, but it got progressively colder, and ended up as rubbery, bending the fork. But the Guinness was perfect...
