Regular visitor but tonight has really let it down

Come here often to eat, maybe once a fortnight so pretty regular and food service is slowish or normally 20-30min wait but tonight only ordered main and have waited 50mins with no warning when ordering and no-one coming and advising us of delay - not impressed ... Shame let themselves down tonight

Best value pub I have ever experienced in UK. Food & drink very good. If the place is busy you will need to be patient in waiting for food & bar orders, but well worth it

Had a lovely evening with friends, am loving the " Go Large" on your Soft Drinks at no extra cost.. Lovely this time of year with it being so Hot .. A nice Lime and Soda is just what you need with your Bar food .. Very pleasant staff and very clean for such a busy pub

We called in here for dinner after a long day. The staff were helpful and polite. The food was brought out quickly and was excellent value for money.

Firstly, I live local to the Treacle and eaten there quite a few times but it may be time to move on as cheap food doesn't compensate for low standards, long waits and bad customer service. Had to pay for the staffs mistakes ...we were charged £6.98 for a £3.98 meal and they wouldn't change it. The guy made 4... More

One of the best full English breakfast I've had. The Sizzling was breakfast with piping hot potatoes and onions behind the scrumptious sausages and eggs was excellent. Not good for your cholesterol, but a great breakfast once in a while. Fantastic value for money as well: I paid about £9 for two breakfasts and two coffees.
