This is typical of this group of pubs, Ok the foods not master chef but good value as is the drink. Nice size car par park, no blaring music etc. Service can be a little slow but staff cost money and I suppose this helps keep the prices down and that's a big factor today

Went here on Friday 27 june 2014, for Wetherspoons fish and chip Friday. Nice atmosphere in the pub but the fish, chips and onion rings were all overlooked to the point where they were dry and shrivelled. As we were on our way to se a show we did not have time to send them back. If you fancy Wetherspoons... More

Weatherspoons offer fantastic value for money but some of their premeises are a little tired and run down. Not so here. The Elms has been refurbished and is in excellent condition. Add to this the legendary value for money and you can't ask for more. It's a place that my family return to time after time.

This is our local pub that we have been visiting for many years. Yesterday, a group of 7 of us were refused drinks, because one of the group was my 3 year old daughter. We were told we could order drinks with food, which we did, but we were just a little taken aback, as we have never come across... More

We had some fun in this pub with our friends as well as dinner. Nice crockery and a fast service with helpful staff was all we wanted.

The once relaxed family atmosphere of The Elms now seems to have dwindled... I couldn't even sit down with my children until I'd ordered a meal. Bar staff and manager were apparently enforcing their policy welcoming children providing meals were purchased. My kids are well behaved I (!) are well behaved. The policy should be reviewed and applied on an... More

I regularly frequent this pub as it offers a good range of real ales and a menu which is varied and reasonably priced. Steak Night (Tuesdays) is particularly good value. You have a good range of steaks on offer with sides and deserts which means a meal for 2 (including a free drink each from their standard range) comes to... More
