We've just tried the new breakfast menu at the Treacle Mine. Lots of choice, very good prices (£2.79 for a full English and £1 for unlimited tea or coffee), quick service, nice environment. I'm gluten free and they were happy to advise on options and change around elements I couldn't have without charging extra - though do make sure they... More

This is a branded pub and as such, the menu is done on a grander scale yet it is a menu I found very appealing. It was well cooked, promptly served and very well recieved. Having... More

Went here with family to have a meal.......outside the restaurant was rubbish, food and when we entered there was so disorganised we turned and left! Have eaten here before and not had a problem, but they had staff shortages and let a few couples sit at a table for 4-6 people!!

I have read some of the reviews and I must say there are some very grumpy people around. Me my wife and kids come here once a week now and the food is great every time. We order off the daily deals menu with a drink for two adults and two children and it comes in at about £25. Great... More

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!

Knowing this place had a bad reputation, we ended up there tonight by chance. I had Rack of ribs served with small salad twister fries and onion rings. 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.
