I went to this pub for Christmas dinner and just for a roast and I always found the location and food amazing for reasonable price also very close to Victoria park for digestive walk :)

A small group of us went for a Sunday roast before the Victoria Park fireworks display. I was a bit apprehensive due to a few bad reviews I'd seen here but have to say, it was a delicious meal! Food was fantastic; yorkshires and gravy were perfect, there was a mountain of meat and the veggies were fresh and delicious... More

It was a lovely pub, nice wine and setting and staff were great. The food let it down so much. For £17 I was expecting a really good roast dinner, but it was diar. The lamb had a very bizarre, soggy and bitty-like texture. The potatoes were hard and carrots were bland. No other veg. Redeeming part was the Yorkshire... More

Handy positioning between Victoria park entrances. Sunny outside seating, barbecue food outside when I visited, friendly bar staff, nice pub, good layout and Young's beers to choose from.

The food was pretty tasty but the cost was too much. The hamburger was excellent. The pub garden was by the side of noisy roundabout.

Food was great, wife had fish and chips which she put on par with The Magpie in Whitby. I had a roast chicken which got close to be being perfect but lacked stuffing. Come on, it`s traditional, surely a touch of sage and onion isn`t too much to ask? The greatest surprise was that the pub was dog friendly! And... More

Short but sweet. The pub was empty at 12-30 (Sunday 14th August) before even getting into the door a waitress asked what do you want to drink and are you eating here? Wine and beer was fine I then ordered a nut roast veg meal and fish and chips. As said there was hardly anyone in the pub so I... More

The staff were fantastic and ensured that everything ran smoothly. They helped set up a beautiful space which made it even more special. Thanks also to... More

I've lived locally for years now and it's always a nice pub to go to. I like the drinks selection and the food but it's never been anything standout. I think my main critcism lies in the fact that the pub has changed ownership a good 3-4 times since I've lived around there. Each time the decor changed and the... More
