I have to say how fabulous this place is! Buffet breakfast is the best I have ever Tasted. The sausages are amazing!. Their fish and chips is just as amazing! We used to venture all over but now only eat here. The staff are friendly and helpful and the place is clean.

It's a lovely pub but it seriously needs an upgrade...the food is average at best and the staff seem fed up..unless your a regular which you notice them getting better attention... served first etc. .. the pub over the road had been done up so the competition has been set.

Visited for the first time in years just before Christmas. So much better than expected. And what a great price. Thought I'd be paying more. Anyone wanting a good meal and decent drink should visit.

I frequent this establishment quite regularly (so my online banking app tells me!) - The food here is really cheap, but of a high quality. Everyone knows they make money on the beer or desserts, etc, so don't complain about the price of the food thinking its 'cheap for a reason', etc. The roasties are top notch.
