Was meeting friend for lunch and a little concerned after reading recent reviews, had no need to worry. Service was friendly and speedy, food for price paid ,was excellent. We really enjoyed our visit and will be returning when next in town.

This place is going down hill fast, if you want to experience the North Pole. Visit here, shocking! No heating at the back! Staff unhelpful, could not care. Glasses left on tables, no clearing up, no cups for tea of coffee!!

Wonderful staff got to have a lovely chat with Emily and kayleigh, very friendly and I didn't feel rushed at all! I even had the pleasure of meeting the manager. The food was lovely and didn't take long to get to us considering the amount of people. was one of the best pub lunches I have had. Highly recommended!!!

Have to say I'm normally quite harsh with my review but I really noticed the bar man (Brian) he was so overly lovely that he made my night I had to ask for his name! He was so approachable and so polite really is a credit to this place and stood out to me..

Myself and a few work colleagues use this establishment mainly for lunch. The food is always nice and the bar staff have got to know us and are always friendly. We have on occasions gone in the evening after work and it's generally lively and a nice atmosphere. The refurbishment has made a difference so all in all a nice...
