My partner and I visited a few weeks ago and had a fabulous meal. Staff were great and could not do enough to assist. Helpful, smiling and extremely good service. We will revisit soon

First visit to a place which I had high hopes for. To start with when we ordered we were not asked how we would like our steaks cooked & the waitress was unsure as to whether we could swap our new potatoes & fries to sweet potato fries. When eating the steaks (or rather trying to) we both noticed too much sinew, despite it being mentioned on numerous occassions that you locally source your quality meats. Therefore if this is why you charge the prices you do for the kind of quality we experienced, we shall choose never to return & never to recommend to anyone!

Had high hopes for this venue, but most disappointed. It gets icy cold when people go for a cigarette, as the door to the beer garden gets left open - not very welcoming for the majority that don’t smoke. Ordered burgers, presented burnt on the outside and slightly underdone in the middle. One came with bacon so over cooked, I’m certain I’d have needed a filling if I’d tried to eat it. The chips were poor, yes they were hand cut, but so undercooked they were just floppy and greasy. If I hadn’t have been so hungry, I’d have got up and walked out, but ate what I could. The server eventually asked how things were. Granted, she offered to have the meal re-cooked, but who’d have a meal after complaining? If you can’t get it right first time round, why should you have a second chance?! Server pulled her face when it came to pay and reluctantly gave a discount- however, I’d not eaten most of the meal, so why should I pay for it? If I’d only presented part payment for a fully consumed meal, I’m certain they’d want the difference making up! I’d be happy for the manager to speak to me, as my many reviews are fair and open of other venues I’ve visited. Shall I visit again? No.
