Very sparkly interior with loads of twinkly lights on large bushes. Not very classy. That sums the place up really. Seems popular with locals and those looking for cheap meal rather than quality. Sits on the edge of large residential estate with good parking.

Came across this pub on our way back from visiting Rode Hall snowdrops in Scholar Green. Hadn't really got much of an idea where we were but were on the look out for somewhere to eat for lunch. Our husbands had the fish, chips and mushy peas; my sister and I had the chicken sizzler with rice. Everything was delicious... More

This corner pub provides excellent food and friendly attentive service and a superb sweet deal which means you are able to partake of their marvelous puddings even if you think you are too full. A varied range of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes all come cooked to perfection and there are daily specials as well to tempt the most demanding... More

Visiting friends and the pub/restaurant had been advised since new management. Came in a large group and were told very rudely by bar staff we were a burden. May this have been accidental or not the treatment caused us to feel very awkward. The waiting on staff were polite and lively and the wait for the food was short. When... More

This was our 3rd visit and once again the food and atmosphere was excellent, we cannot understand the negative/poor feedback. All we can say is try it for yourself. We have tried various food off the menu and beers, all were excellent. The greeting from Claire, landlady was lovely as usual who asks for feedback while you are there. Looking... More

Surprised at recent poor reviews. Lunched with friends who all had different dishes and all were very good indeed. Portions were so big could not find space for dessert. Staff good and yes we were asked if our food was O.K and later if we wanted coffee etc.

In the last month this has become a pub we no longer want to visit. Bar flies taking up the whole service area, talking loudly and swearing. The music is atrocious. It was never good, but neutral at best. Now it's painfully bad and loud. Kitchen door open so the smells are coming into the bar. Bar staff have all... More
