After reading the recent reviews we were dubious about trying this pub again, but decided to give it a go as a couple of years ago it used to be lovely; upon phoning the venue they were very friendly and explained they had new managers. First impressions were good, a clean, well decorated, recently refurbished premises which was spotlessly clean.... More

We went using a groupon voucher, I visited a few years ago & had a great Sunday lunch but things have gone downhill. For the price we paid I suppose it wasn't bad value but the place was filthy. The waiter / bar man was very nonchalant & arrogant & there was another staff member filing her nails & reading... More

We went here on a groupon voucher with my parents, I had heard good things about the pub and was looking forward to going. Well disappointment struck as soon as we ordered our drinks, ●I had a coke and rather than it coming from the pump, the bar tender pulled a bottle of coke from under the bar and poured... More

The pub appeared to be really nice. Staff were helpful but the food was a bit of a let down. My (veggie) food was barely cooked and tasteless. My husband had steak - requested medium rare but i would say it was very rare. Just about ok but nothing to get excited about Starter was ok and hot chocolate after... More

I Should have known when I walked through the door and they couldn't find my dinner reservation to just walk away then. However after getting a drink from the bar, this was resolved in 10 minutes. The pub looked quite charming and cosy and had a good atmosphere- seemed busy. As Been shown to the table I walked past 4... More

We arrived in plenty of time but our table had not been booked due to an error, apologies and were told it would be sorted. There were 5 of us and we were eventually given a table for 8 which wasn't ideal. The place seemed to lack organisation. The tables were sticky, the carpet filthy, looked like a herd of... More

We, no not the royal we.me and my wife went for a meal on a Groupon offer and even though it wasn't the best food we have had it was worth what we paid for with the offer. The pub/restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the staff friendly,all in all not a bad night out. .

We arrived at 1.30 for a Sunday lunch, when arriving we found the pub itself to be quiet but it had a nice atmosphere. We were met by 2 collie dogs who followed us in the pub in the food serving area. We given a table by a smiling, friendly, young lady who offered us the choice of a carvery... More

Awful food. We went there midweek for a family meal and the place was extremely quiet - I assumed due to it being midweek. The menu is pretty much standard pub stuff - starters of fried brie, soup of the day, prawn cocktail, etc. The fried brie was actually very tasty. I unfortunately chose the soup of the day, which...
