booked a table for 5.30 Saturday. The service was ok but the food was basic and disappointing. People had recommended the food but when it came the risotto looked as if it had been sat there all day, the mustard had a skin on it, the chips looked like frozen oven chips and the chicken burger was not very tasty....

My wife and I booked the function room for a joint 60th birthday party on June 13th, from the time we initially booked ,Steph and her team could not have done more, the actual night was great, the room was fantastic, the food first class. Although we live in Mickleover we stayed over in one of the rooms, they are... More

Came here for food and asked to see the allergy menu, they told us initially that they weren't sure they had one (!!) but eventually brought one out that had been filled in by hand. Limited food for what I could have with my allergy. We decided on just nachos in the end. These were nice and tasty. Would come... More

We are sorry to hear that you found our menu to be restrictive due to allergens. We do have an allergy data sheet and our team member should have located it instantly for you. As the vast majority of our menu is cooked fresh to order we will always happily mix and match menu items to suit our guests dietary... More

A group of us (18) enjoyed our meals here in May. We have visited before as a large party and always pre-booked and pre-ordered. As usual the service, food and ambiance was excellent. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered, some had starters, some just mains, but none could be faulted whatsoever. The staff are very polite, courteous and helpful. The venue... More

Me and my partner and his family decided to head to the great northern... It's one of their kind of regulars and they enjoy the food every time. Which is a plus. We went the week after mothers day due to thinking it would be less busy... As mothers day is always so rammed... And we were right and it... More

We visited for a late afternoon treat, opting away from the typical pub grub brands!!! We were greeted by a friendly member of the waiting staff. We chose from a well formed menu, with a fab choice of vegi options and a great specials boards. After making our order. The drinks were brought over quickly along with cutlery. The waiting... More

There's a real warmth about this place, staff, food and surrondings are all pleasing and well done. The menu is pretty standard but the food is tasty, served well and portions are just right. If there is anything you want changing the staff try their best to accommodate you, a rarity in most restaurants.

Came here for lunch, were told to pick a table so we did. It was quite busy but looking around most people were finished. Sat for 15 mins and were ignored by 3 members of staff. Got up and left. Rubbish 'service'. Will not return.

What a great find!! I had arranged a surprise weekend away for my partners 30th nearby. After a bit of google research this hidden treasure appeared. What a delight!! 24 of us pre-ordered our food for the Friday night and another 6 joined us whilst we were there. Nothing was too much for the staff here. All meals were served... More
