Myself and my husband have visited this place several times and we have never had a bad experience until I went on Friday evening with my elderly Aunt. Granted the place was quite busy but whilst searching for a table there seemed to be quite a few empty ones they were littered with the remains of the last diners. We... More

Another pub i used to love over the past 10 years but in recent months has gone downhill. The cleanliness is the biggest issue as the tables are always greasy,menus stuck together and food slopped on the floor and on the chairs. Stains on fabric and a general grotty atmosphere. The food takes a while to arrive but does taste... More

Went there to-day for breakfast...what a bad decision that was! Arriving just after 10am there was just one other couple in the pub. When our breakfast eventually arrived we had to send both back as they were stone cold...I have never sent a meal back in my life before to-day! The place began to fill up and the complaints from...

This pub seems to be having an identity crisis. Now renamed the unicorn - or is it hungry horse? So is it a horse or a bloomin unicorn? They are kinda confusingly similar? Have to say the up and down layout of this pub is annoying too, there's so many steps and up and down bits you have to watch... More

Had a mixed grill, not a good standard of service, glasses dirty when the bar man refilled them he filled them back up half way. Food was mediocre.
