Lovely homely pub

Fabulous pub. Great atmosphere and the food is reasonably priced and it really is delicious. I've always found the service to be friendly and quite quick too.

We had the roast .. topside beef.. which was supposed to be medium rare and it was well done and very tough.. Not the best in town but the kids meal had a salad option was good to see.. All in all not a bad place.. just work on the quality guys..

We visited and were greated by a lovely lad called Mikey. Very friendly and knowledgeable about which foods were gluten free. The gluten free bakewell tart was great (if a little small) but we are just greedy!

I visited the pub with friends for a weekend lunch. I was the only person in the group to order a starter, which arrived promptly. After I finished my starter, the rest of the mains arrived but mine was nowhere to be seen. The staff did not come to check back at any point and as a result seemed completely... More

On reading others reviews, I thought I'd write one myself. I've been here in numerous occasions with my family and I can say I've always had great service and food has been good. Only once did our meal not arrive as the chef forgot about it, but the staff rectified this mistake and took money off our bill for the... More

Poor value for money. We had the beef and pork slider sharing platter, small portions, cheap fries and a separate side order suggested by staff of the said onion rings.

We visited recently with our youngest son, the food was good, service was pretty slow but as we enjoyed the food on that visit we decided to take our eldest son there on Thursday 30 July. Staff are pleasant and we were given a table immediately as it was pretty quiet. Our drinks arrived pretty quickly, we ordered three meals... More

Four of us went to the Crosshouse last night. We had booked a table for seven o clock and, after having a drink in the bar, we went to our table at ten past seven. After ordering, we waited a long time before getting our starters but did not complain at this stage. However, we waited and waited for the... More
