This pub has good disabled access. Very clean and tidy. Didn't like the chips very much. When the person brought out meals out we were told to get cutlery and sauces from the country. Why couldn't he have brought them to us as we didn't realise we had to get it ourselves.

Decided to eat here on our last day in town, and with the acceptance of our four legged companion sat down in the large, bright conservatory area, menu is plentiful and fairly priced. Meals came out well presented, cod was massive and not greasy, burgers, even I struggled to finish mine as was the size, my only gripe is that... More

We were on tour with a bunch of 13yr olds and needed a sit down meal for our tourists. The staff here couldn't have been more helpful and put on a great meal for all of us. The food was delicious, served quickly and accurately without a single hiccup. Of our 77 diners there was not a single complaint. That's... More

Location for a family meet. Seemed a very busy location, but it was Saturday afternoon. A few TVs on showing the sport, so ideal if you fancy watching a match. Fantastic secure play area out the back, ideal for our group with three children under 8. Good selection of drinks at the bar. The Tribute ale came recommended which I... More
