Went in for lunch without a reservation and was seated very quickly. good menu and lots of specials. There were four of us and we were served very well by a smiley waitress. The food arrived quickly and was good, though fairly large portions. My wifes burger was the star of the show, well made and full of flavour.. I... More

Enjoyed an evening with my wife, children and in-laws. As always the staff were very friendly. We didn't have to wait to be seated. We were served with a round of drinks straight away. My daughter had the chicken tikka masala as she often does here and again it was superb. My son likes to build his own BBQ Chicken... More

The staff and service were fine but the food had a lot to be desired. Had the 'special' Gammon and steak dish from the menu. The meat was dripping in grease and oozed out when you cut it with your knife. It was as if the meal had been coked in a deep fat fryer. Avoid steaks at all cost... More

I was rather surprised to see the negative reviews on here. My 90-year-old mother and I had the Christmas Meal and we thought it was first-class. Hot, tasty and cooked to perfection. We often eat at this pub when I visit my mother in Peterborough and we have never been let down. So our thanks go to the Manager and... More

I would like to start by offering my unreserved praise for the serving staff. Despite our reservation being at midday and, therefore, being extremely busy, the staff were courteous and friendly at all times. I was with the same BPF party as Elizabeth D (her review is below (or above?) mine) and I wholeheartedly agree with her statements about the... More

Not the best experience for this place, usually really good but sadly this visit was poor! The table was really wobbly, the food wasn't great (luke warm & not tasty!) and although accidents do happen - my friend ended up wearing her drink after the waitress spilt them. To be fare , we did get some money off the bill.... More

We were joining a Christmas meal for local members of the British Polio Fellowship so most of our party had a physical disability and therefore needed more space than the average customer. We also had a problem in that two of our party did not arrive on time. However, the staff made us very welcome, our table was well placed... More

We chose this place to celebrate a young family members birthday. We were seated next to the small play area as we had 3 small children with us and it was very convenient as it stopped the children getting bored. its also far enough away from the other dining area so we didn't disturb other diners.The childrens menu is ok,...
