I ordered cod and it was very greasy. The mushy peas looked dull and off and had a hard layer across the top, not fresh for sure. I do think it is very over priced for what you get.

I have been to this pub/restaurant several times and never had a bad meal. The best thing about the place is that you get top restaurant quality food but in a nice relaxed pub setting. The portions are massive and you will struggle to eat more than 2 courses. The prices are slightly above average but there are no complaints... More

Staff are always pleasant, and service is usually very quick and efficient. Large traditional pub menu. Food is good. Different menu Sunday lunchtime. Always good local ales available.... More

Eight of us went for a pre-booked New Year's Eve meal and celebration.. We were made very welcome and the service was excellent. This was a very busy time yet all the staff were courteous and despite a bustling atmosphere we felt comfortable throughout. We already knew the menu options so found it easy to order from a good selection... More
