Five friends, for over forty years, met here for lunch on Saturday 12 April 2014. The food was delicious and the staff friendly. With two courses for £12, the standard of food was better than average and definitely worthy of a return visit.

Superb tasting food, beautifully presented. With cask ales and excellent value wines. What more could one ask for ? Well; how about open fires, candle-lit tables and the warmest of welcomes?! From the outside it may look like "only another pub". How wrong could you be, step inside with an appetite and step out a few hours later with a... More

My wife and I had lunch at The Monro and then returned the same evening for dinner. On both occassions the food and service were excellent and the value was OUTSTANDING!! A two course lunch cost £12 each and their Monday night special was £16 each for two courses and a bottle of wine. However, don't get the wrong idea... More

After a long day shopping, me and my husband popped into The Monro for an early evening dinner without a reservation and had a very reasonable 2 course menu for £14. All food was well presented, well cooked and very tasty (especially the oxtail lasagne). The restaurant was busy but we weren't made to feel rushed at all and our... More

Visited with a friend and had the 'early doors' option. What a disappointment it was. The goats cheese and baby beets starter was so small, if you scooped it all up at once it would have amounted to barely a forkful. The main course of 'home made' fish pie was dry, unappetisingly presented and so ferociously hot that we had... More

What can I say. Great little pub that serves excellent food at excellent prices. Such a relaxed atmosphere with a good selection of draught beers coupled with an ever changing menu. A must try

I was joined by 17 other people yesterday, for a special occasion eating at the Monro. We booked in advance and paid a deposit, so they knew to be expecting a large party of guests. When we arrived we had to wait 20 minutes to get menus, our starters came an hour after we ordered. We finally got our mains... More

Firm family favourite. Whether you're on a date, with friends, or eating out as a family this place is perfect. Seasonal menu is updated constantly with new and innovative dishes and there's always a pre-theatre menu with at least 1 veggie option, as well as a meat, fish and poultry dish each. Early doors menu is very reasonably, and the... More
