Me and my partner came here today for dinner. We were seated straight away and our drinks order taken. The staff were polite and friendly and there was a good choice of food on the menu. Food came swiftly and was very nice, better than martons or a Witherspoon. Very reasonably priced. Will definitely go again.

Visited the swinging bridge on 1st Feb 2015 for a family meal. When we arrived at the pub we requested a table for 9 people and we were told that tables only sat parties of up to 8 and we would have to sit in bar area on two adjacent tables. My wife and I then discussed going elsewhere and... More

Visited for breakfast. All you can eat. The choice is vast and you literally can have all you can eat. Reasonably priced. Lovely start to the day.

noisey, understaffed, long wait for food at busy times (45 min +) no cctv in carpark and looking at the piles of glass, it's needed!

Very nice food,nice staff ,however. The walls next to our table were dirty,in need of a deep clean. We tried to guess what was on our wall but we were not sure. It was several greasy like smears.It was off putting.

Nice ambiance. The food here is quite standard, but decent. I liked my burger and chips, although it would have been better, when it was cooked medium instead of well done. Can't really fault it Good value for money

Service a little slow but food was good and nice and hot. As we were staying at the Premier Inn we opted for the value meal at £22.99 for two courses, a drink and breakfast. The chicken and leek pie had lovely short pastry and plenty of filling. The mixed grill was good too with peppercorn sauce.

Stayed at the adjacent Premier Inn so ate here in the restaurant. Unbelievably saw a mouse run across the floor whilst eating, pointed it out to the waiter who didn't really believe me. Then I saw it again and so did the waiter, the staff discretely caught it (allegedly), put it outside and carried on as though nothing had happened.... More
