So, as a local we disregarded either eating or drinking here for a couple of years before the refurb - went for a meal tonight - ok the new staff are so accommodating and helpful but unfortunately the food is no better. We had steak which was flavourless And wine overpriced! So overall staff = Excellent and food = dismal... More

No milk and sugar on condiments tray so had to ask for some. Food was usual pub fayre. Service a bit slack. Staff seemed over stretched. Was surprised that there didn't seem... More

I have been going to the crew and harpur for many years and have always been delighted with the 2-4-1 on meals. I went for a family meal on Sunday at 2pm and was seated in a quiet area quickly. Staff were very friendly and we had a waitress who was new. Considering it was busy she coped well. We... More

Stopped by recently and had lunch here. Great food, even on a 2-for-1 - food quality was great and brilliant value. What let the whole experience down, was the barman (a chap in his mid-late 50's) who had the customer service of a brick. Very sharp in his retort and curt, you just really didn't want to order food. I... More

Good value food on the 2 for 1 deal however a tad expensive if dining alone or odd numbers. Can be very busy especially on fine weather days, may have to wait a bit for food. The waiting staff are excellent even when busy.
