Went for a bar meal during the week with my b/f and ordered gammon and Cumberland sausage. Food was nice. Nothing exceptional but I feel a little over priced for what you get. Would recommend to friends but only for local "nice" pub grub. Would have liked better quality meat for my money

Booked table for 4, which is advisable as it was very busy, we ordered 4 main meals, 2 soft drinks & 2 pints beer. Food came quite fast considering how many meals were being served in the dining area,plates were quite large & food was ok, but think it was more about quantity than quality though. Smaller portions & lower... More

We went after hearing about how great this place was, and as a result had pretty high hopes for it. We were shown to a table pretty easily, but I was a bit taken aback by the prices- everything is in the region of £11, which seemed steep for a pub meal. We ordered, me getting the fish and chips...

Fab meals, large portions - who can complain about how much you get you can always leave it - meals are abit pricey but the quality is in the price. Recommend to anyone!

We booked for 9 people for a wednesday night, arrived 10mins early and the place was packed, though we were seated before we finished our first drink. If a place is packed to the rafters mid week that must be a good sign. Only starter we got was soup and this was too hot to eat, but this was the... More
