Went here with a group of friends. Haven't been for a long while to be honest as used to be quite expensive to go. Was pleasantly surprised with the prices here. It seems to have changed since I last came. You can get two meals for £11.49. Also the drinks aren't too expensive either. Will definitely come back here again.... More

The good here was absolutely outstanding! Our orders were taken pretty soon after arrival and we wasn't waiting that long for our food to come out! Really great tasting and the puddings were amazing, I would definitely recommend and come back time and time again! Friendly staff always there to help!

Came here with high expectations and was not disappointed! All 3 meals were cooked well, and in a timely fashion, considering how busy they were! I spoke to a bar maid and apparently it was "quiet" for a Friday lunch??? Wow!! Easy to see why they are so popular!! Will return soon!!

Visited at 5.30 pm on a weekday. First time I had been there but my wife has been several times. Went to the bar and had fast friendly drinks service. Some pubs seem to cram in as may tables as they can but this pub has lots of tables with lots of space between them. Having seated we looked at... More

Was a busy Friday evening and we had only booked the day before for 14 people. The food was fairly quickly to arrive and all looked very nice and was hot... which can be a problem when you have large groups and being busy. I had the cod & chips which was a good size portion. The staff were pleasant... More
