Have visited to eat on several different occasions. We find it a bit hit & miss food wise. The food is either cooked lovely or not! Buy 1, get 1 free on main meals, so always busy. Staff seem unhappy in their work. It's okay for a quickish, midweek meal, if the right cook is working!

From the moment we stepped through the door we had the best service we have had in a long time. Friendly faces, attentive staff and good food. We will definitely be back.

Called in on way to a concert thought it might be good option as time was tight. Warm welcome, asked if I would be able to get served quickly, was told not a problem, having checked with the kitchen. Ordered scampi with chips and garden peas, with pint oh beer. All arrived quite quickly, beer was very good. Unfortunately the... More

Clean and a fresh look on arrival, would like to see some happier staff. Clearly they were under pressure and under staffed. Clean tables inside and packed with customers. As a result service was painfully slow. Food okay nothing to write home about.

Have been to this pub several times, attracted by its convenient location and 2 for 1 deal. On this occasion (a Tuesday lunchtime), we were greeted pleasantly and quickly shown to a table. They were busy, but not under particular pressure. Service throughout was friendly and attentive. My main issue however is about the food. Without the 2 for 1... More

We use this pub regularly as it is on our doorstep. We were served by the excellent Laura who has fantastic customer service skills. Food was good pub chain food and the cost was fair for what you pay. I particularly enjoy the pate for starters and the Barnsley lamb chop.
