Our overseas visitors were impressed with the location, the food and the service. That was until the boyfriend arrived! Beers were cold and the limited wine list has very good wines on offer. Steaks were done to perfection with options of baked potato, chips or salad. The salad was an actual salad with lots of olives, cheese and exotic greens,... More

The food was great as was the service. Maybe a bit noisy for some on a late Friday afternoon, but there should be quieter times as well. Great lunch time specials.

This is a pub atmosphere and is always buzzing. The food was great value for money and the steaks were done to perfection on the tow occasions we visited. The service was good and we can highly recommend this establishment

We had a quick lunch at the Steak and Ale today while waiting for our family to arrive. I had the chicken strips and fried haloumi salad, beyond delicious! Hubby had a lemon and herb chicken burger, also very good!

Came here for a few beers before dinner and to watch the football. Pretty ordinary place - very annoying that they were whipping away cushions, chairs and tables to make way for the evening crowd when actually the place was half empty. Warm lager.

We came here early evening for dinner. It was a windy night so they moved out table to the inside area near the display fridge.
