I visited with my boyfriend and 9month old baby on one friday evening. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. Perfect pub for children and families. Great baby changing facilities and a lovely fenced off garden area so no risk of dog or children running onto the road whilst you enjoy the large beergarden. The selection of drink both soft...

Arrived for a late lunch on Bank Holiday Monday May 25th 2015. We ordered the fish & chips .The very small piece of fish was full of bones and was not very fresh. We both had similar meals. I complained about the food and was informed that the manager would be told. We left after paying the full price, but... More

The bar area in restaurants are normally not reserved. Was a little put off by being asked to move to another table. The one we sat at didn't say reserved and the table they wanted to move us to was the same size. Restaurant has a habit of saying they are booked when they have no patrons. I wonder how... More

Even when busy, the staff are amazing - cheerful, attentive ad fun. Great selection of ales- drinking the Velo last night & the girls enjoyed... More

This pub is mobbed with kids every weekend, and weekdays and week nights in school holidays. Which is great for the kids, they take over the beer garden and have great fun running around and screaming while their parents drink buckets of fine wine oblivious to the noise and chaos which equal Nice fat profit for the pub, who do...
