Recently visited this pub with a good group of friends, we found the service incredibly slow as there was one person serving and they clearly needed a lot more start. We have to wait 20 minutes to be served. The food menu have a lot of choice at reasonable prices, The food was okay to give the price we pay.... More

Both meals the Sausages were so hard (they had obviously been standing on a hot plate for a long time or over "nuked" in a microwave!!. They were so hard you... More

Popped in for a quick bite. What I assume to be the Manager seemed to do everything to put us off ordering and by his rude manner succeeded. They were obviously very short staffed for a Saturday evening, which was not surprising if the Manager is as rude to staff and he is to the customers!

My wife who is very critical of food had the Chicken and Bacon Salad. It was very very nice And we eat out a lot Not a single fault I had two... More

This pub chain has based itself around the Weatherspoon's theme. What you get is good basic food for a very reasonable price. They pride themselves on their sizzling platters and to be fair there not bad! The portions are ample and the food was hot, I had the mixed grill at £7.79 with plenty to shout about including rump steak,... More

Just don't even think about ordering any quality food.... The place is just awful matching the food. Everything is sticky and needs a good clean.

4 of us visited this restaurant yesterday and had various meals, 2 x surf n turf, one simply chicken and one half roast chicken. There was quite a long wait at the bar to order the meals and get drinks, but this was because there seemed to be only one person serving. The meals we ordered were not standard and... More

I thought regular overcharging was due to incompetence but a conversation with the Manager made me realise they know exactly what they are doing. This pub never provides an itemised receipt, why? Because 80% of the time they overcharge their customers, very fond of giving Money Off Food Vouchers but these vouchers cancel out any "Every Day Discounts" on the... More

The serviing staff were all fabulous!!! but apparently the chef had the ump, not sure why, it's not like he has to come up with a menu or prepare lots of fresh ingredients, most of the food appears to come out of a freezer bag so his job is not exactly rocket science. in my opinion if he cannot behave...
