The food was great ,to be fair and the kids meals were just right,and the service was great aswell. The main sitting area was light and airy and nicely decorated. But this pub is not for families,cheap pints at £2.35 advertised and alot of drunk people watching football,also alot of bad language being used. So i wouldn,t visit again. Such... More

Came here for a birthday get together and figured it was like a smaller version of spoons across the road (in sense it is a pub that does food also). I was correct however it is rather pricey compared to other rival bars with food options on the main street. This would be ok if the quality was much better,... More

I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy your recent visit. Admittedly we were really caught on the hop with totally overwhelming amount of guests that day. This is not our usual standard and can only apologise for the wait. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Lessons to be learned for the future. More

Lunch today, four of us, place about two thirds full. This noise masquerading as "music" on constantly, just a din but off putting. Noisy punters but that's fair enough. Ordered 2pm finally got food 50 minutes later. The staff were nice and run off thier feet. Too few staff for demand I think. I had ordered BLT sandwich, the bread... More

Visited here this afternoon with my father. Was greeted by nice friendly woman who took our drinks orders. The place was not to busy but had to wait a while for drinks (only ordered a large diet coke and lager shandy) which was delivered by another waitress. We were asked what we wanted to order. I had fish and chips... More

I notice you have been before and enjoyed your visit with exactly the same dish. Hopefully you will give us another chance to redeem ourselves meantime I will personally... More

My friend and I ordered a sirloin steak meal, the service was slow 45 minutes before we received our meal! I ordered a medium steak my friend ordered well done!
