Visited on Sunday 12/10/14. Arrived about 3.30 waited to be seated as indicated by a sign. Gave up waiting after 5 minutes as not one member of staff took any notice of us despite us being walked past on a number of occasions. Went to bar one lady serving who served somebody she obviously knew and chatted for a couple... More

ok, drinks took a while to come, food order was slow and the meal was slow in coming. Food was warm but not hot! So satisfactory is all I can say

Average meal, took along time for the meal to come out. Had the meals after we had finished in front of us for almost an hour. The glasses just piled up until there was no more room on the table. Sat next to a hot radiator and a toilet with people passing next to you to get to the toilet.... More

I'm reading some of the reviews, and am wondering if they are commenting about the same pub.. It was bustling when i walked in, which gave the feel of a "local" pub, which unfortunately is a rare thing now.. The dining area was busy, so i ordered a snack at the bar, for which the team made into a "main... More

A disappointing lunch this visit. The starters were OK, though the prawns in the cocktail were soft (obviously de-frozen). Our main courses - The beef and tanglefoot pie was nice, the fish had too thick a batter which was soft on the inside. The fish platter was alright but we would not have it again. My dessert was lovely (toffee... More

I am in agreement with previous reviewers who have said that this pub has no flair. The food is boring, and the presentation a triumph of style over substance. Hall and Woodhouse pubs just feel so corporate these days. Their menu lacks imagination and also frankly lacks choice. If you were staying in the area you'd struggle to come back... More

Charming staff members, very attentive. The menu isn't huge (being a Hall and Woodhouse standard pub menu) but has something for everyone. There are a few items for veggies, some lighter meals for those of us trying to loose a bit of weight, and traditional puddings plus pudding pots(tasters really but served in a large shot glass - so at...

Not as good as it was. Menu very limited and expensive compared with other pub grub. Example: Pasty, chips & peas - £9+. In fact it's boring. It's not either a pub with food or a restaurant. Been here very many times but definitely going downhill these days. It's nothing special I'm sorry to say.

The Chef sadly has no flair.........We ate again at this pub with a few friends one evening this week after having quite enjoyed the eating experience a few months ago. Sadly we were disappointed and having spent well over £100 I do feel a review will help other patrons to decide to eat and spend their hard earned cash elsewhere.... More

Good pub for food and a drink, nice outside area for alfresco dining.. Meet there with friends for a drink or lunch ideal venue for either.. Friendly staff,
