After a day out, we called here with the family and had a lovely meal. You have to order at the bar, but the meal didn't take long to come, which was good for the two hungry boys we had in our group. There is plenty of choice, even in the children's menu and the staff are friendly and efficient.... More

Stopped by for an evening meal mid week, it was extremely busy but I did find a table. The food was above average in quality and met a budget. Staff were helpfull and plentifull, the wine menu was pretty interesting too. I would visit again if I was in the area.

Booked table on line which was simple/easy/quick to do. Seated straight away. Carvery was fresh, hot, tasty with plenty of choice. Excellent service provided by a very pleasant young man called Chris. All in all excellent value for money, clean, friendly atmosphere.

Me and my elderly dad eat here regularly the food is good but the manager rob is always smiling and making you feel welcome nothing is too much for him to do he deserves a special comment for how much he's done to the place since he took over turning it round so well

Went as a party of 12 last night had a good night but food was not great, warm at best certainly not hot and only had 1 person serving the whole party so took quite a while for all the meals to be brought out. One meal sent back as cold though this was rectified and the waiter was very... More

Food was good, service ok had to wait for gravy while my food went cold. Advertises itself as being a real ale pub, asked what ale they had on, none at all, not really a place to go if you want a nice pint of real ale, bit disappointing

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately we experienced a point last week where our delivery cane on the same day that we became out of stock. We need to allow the Ale to settle before we can serve. I apologise that we were out of stock. More

Popped in here for a quick lunch on a Friday afternoon. The place was quite busy for a week day afternoon which is usually a good sign. The menu is quite extensive with lots of usual steak, burgers and pub grub standards. We had one sizzling platter and one burger. Both were ok, but we asked for some small adjustments... More
