Good Value for Family Meal

We popped in for a family meal, as we all had the day to ourselves. Weather was rubbish, so no option but to sit inside - where we were placed in the corner, overlooking the pond/lake. Nice table. Took a while for a waitress to come and take our orders, like wise was a wait before the food... read more

Will never return, was once a lovely family run pub but now a brewery has its claws in it it's not nice warm food when it eventually appears, no welcoming smile or atmosphere, bland frozen microwave meals, grubby rundown, very poor won't be recommending or using again yuck

We had two nice Beer's and waited a good while for our food, I had a Codfather a dish not on the two for one offer. The piece of fish was so over cooked I could have picked it up and smashed the plate it was on. The chip's were just oven chip's and the Pea's were rock hard. The... More

I have been visiting this venue on a regular basis with my family over the past few year and always recommended it (see my previous review). But, I need to update my review as I have just been here again and I found some subtle changes to the menu that include a much nicer hamburger (not the square ones as... More

Well the idea here is to get the food as quickly as you can from the freezer to the plate. This is a budget version of the harvester chain for undiscerning people or people with very few taste buds. But there is a market for this "food";if only the service matched the food.Some of the staff are excellent and should... More

There was 11 of us in total and by the looks of everyone's plates (empty,like mine they enjoyed their food). They have a really good deal here £10 for two main meals,as... More

For an inexpensive meal out with a large variety of dishes it cannot be beaten in the area. Huge variety of meal deals.

What you see is what you get. It's cheap and cheerful the food is nice. Don't expect the best steak in Sussex but for the price you can't go wrong. We go here often in the warmer months as the outside area is lovely. Good play area and lovely lake with ducks to watch on.
