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.

We visited the restaurant last night as we are staying on a nearby caravan site, it was very busy which is usually a good sign, Not So. My husband went to the bar as we could only see one waitress serving all the tables, he was ages waiting to order,, the bar staff were stressed as not enough of them.... More

I can honestly say that this was the worst meal I have had for a very long time. The excuses were being given even before we had sat down. Understaffed the waiter said, so really I should have expected the worse. After a very long wait for the drinks, the starters to be fair weren't too bad it was just... More

I can't tell you much about this pub as we could not bear to stay after walking in and looking around. The place was quiet but looked like a bomb had hit it. Food all over the floor, staff with disgusting aprons and not even a smile. We opened our menus which were on our tables and they too were... More

The staff did all they could to ensure we were ok 100% for the service but it a shame that the food lets... More
