I had 3x 50p sized crab fish cakes with salad that were tasteless, then braised steak with mash & veg, the steak was a bit dry & not enough gravy was served. The carrots & beans were OK but the swede was well overcooked. Mash was also OK. My wife had fish & chips main course and the fish was... More

This was the second time we have been there and were not overly impressed. The service was slightly slow and the food was bland and dry. The atmosphere was nice and the staff were pleasant and helpful, its just a shame that the food was over priced for the quality we got.

The place was nice but the food left a lot to be desired..we had the sea bass and the fish pie..the pie was cold and dry the portions were very small and all the dishes and plates were cold so food was only warm. Very disappointed even though we had a discount wouldn't go again!!

Nice venue, reasonable service, poor meals. From undressed salads (you have to ask for dressing or condiments, which arrive late) to overcooked meat, dry uninteresting veg without even a knob of butter, generally dried up meals that taste microwaved. The menu is very large, so whilst it's nice to have good choice, this was too extensive, thus nothing is cooked... More

I have been here before and the service, beer and food has always been excellent. Until last night.... The beer - great. The waitresses great. The Christmas menu food offering - oh dear! Starter - a tiny portion of 2 slivers of honeydew melon with 3 small balls of water melon. A solitary small roast potato cut in half and... More

Portion sizes are becoming smaller every time we visit, Melon had 2 slices (maybe 1/4 inch thick). Chicken breast diminished in size. Had to ask for extra vegetables !!! It is a nice location but the food / portion control is letting it down. At approx. £22 not offering value for money Probably not the best pub and will look... More

The menu is extensive, the type where Gordon Ramsay would come in and tell them to simplify it, but somehow all the dishes come out well. I visited on a busy Friday night during Christmas party season and still the service was good. The staff seemed to be working very well as a team and, although we had a number... More
