Great food, restaurant woefully under staffed

We stumbled across this place during a shopping trip and had lunch there. My wife had the chilli and I had the Vietnamese beef curry, both of which were delightful. We ordered a sweet and it took about half an hour to arrive. The staff the were on duty were clearly rushed off their feet, even... read more

This is an ok place if you have plenty of time on your hands as the service is slow and the queue for the bar was 5 people long both time we went to the bar. Food ok, warm enough but not as hot as I usually like. Prices are a little steep for the food you receive, both quality... More

The food looked and smelt amazing, my girlfriend and I only popped in for a quick refreshment from a busy days shopping. The service was rather slow.. My girlfriend ordered a dessert from the menu. It took about half an hour to arrive. I had the queue for ages at the bar because there was only one staff member serving.... More

Saturday night it was raining so a place in the town was the best alternative. Unfortunately we chose the wrong one! Food was awful. Service was scatty. This is not a good place which is unusual for a marstons pub. Won't be back

We found the pub was rather too dark and noisy with music for our liking.We were there at lunchtime,and there were very few people there. We ordered our food at our table,and the service was good and friendly.The food was just alright,really just pub food.

My other half and I were visiting for the first time, we were the first in there and it all started of rather well. We got half glasses of coke mostly ice, the lady I believe was named Kerryn had her hair down and necklace full front on show. She was dismissive and came across quite arrogant, she took our...

Visited on a Saturday night, so obviously busy. We had been here before, so knew what to expect. You order drinks from one bar and food from another, so, if you just want a drink, at least you're not queuing behind those ordering food for the 24 strong stag party! Food is OK, just what you would expect. Reasonably priced,... More
