Great pub with great food but...........................

We visit this pub most Friday evenings around 5pm for a quick dinner. We don't book as the place is empty at that time and we know it gets busy 6:30pm onwards. We only have a main so if we're there for more than 45 minutes I'm exaggerating. However, every single time we go all the tables have... read more

We were a table of 7 which had a fantastic evening. The service was excellent, our waitress always keeping us topped up with drinks. The food was superb. I can highly recommend the steak (rare).

This place has really gone down hill. The food is sub standard. The decor is grubby and tired. The manageress is so rude and unwelcoming... Need I say anymore? I remember a few years back when this pub was thriving and popular for its good food but not anymore. The bar area is cluttered with empty glasses and most tables... More

I regularly eat here and enjoy it everytime. The food is well cooked and presented and is also incredable value. We also like the guys that work there. Always a smile waiting to greet you.

We have been concerned about the gradual decline of the pub in the last ten months. The food used to be very consistent but we haven't a had a nice meal in the last four visits. The Management need to make their minds up whether the pub is Waitress or Bar service? Last night it was Bar service, two weeks... More

Myself and my husband used to eat here a lot and we really enjoyed coming. Food was always good. In the last year it has really gone downhill. The staff there are, I would say rude. The lady who I assume to be bar manager/ head waitress seemed polite when discussing the food with me until I witnessed her discussing... More

Been here 2 times in one week, went Sunday and the food again surpassed expectation. Then we went back again for my Mums birthday, just can't get enough, the food is great and the ambience is really cool as the chilled out music adds a classy tone to the atmosphere. Keep it up as we make the trip from Merseyside... More
