I love local to this pub. It's average food,no pool table or darts board. Me and my girlfriend went for dinner one Sunday, there wasn't a lot of people in and yet we waited just over an hour for food,wouldn't of minded but the quality of food was poor. Wouldn't go again,would rather go to the punch bowl.

This was better than I expected , rooms well furnished with private bathroom and tv - the food choice was great and delicious . They look after you and the pub is quiet enough to enjoy a relaxing evening

Food OK so long as you want piping hot microwaved food. If you are looking for home made go elsewhere

Nice place inside but the menu is a bit hit and miss. The mushroom dish we had to start looked great, well presented, a bit bland but not bad. However my wife was served a few lettuce leaves with some prawn skewers thrown on top. The prawns weren't hot and they weren't cold, but they were definitely rubbery as hell.... More

We had heard good reviews of this place. We were left sadly disappointed... The only way i can describe the feeling we were left with was that there were 2 chefs that had designed the menu and 2 different chefs cooked it... My wife and friend had the mushroom dish which came on a grey slate with a nice sauce,... More

Upon asking if we were to order at the bar we were coldly pointed in the direction of a... More
