I have known this pub for many years and seen several changes. In the past there has been nice managers and a very pleasant atmosphere. It is now no better than a Hungry Horse. Children running wild on scoters. I have seen a fight "behind" the bar. I find it hard to believe how what was a pleasant venue could... More

Had lunch here yesterday on the warmest day of the year so far and sat outside with the dog. Glorious day but pity about the pub. Was told they had no scampi, what, a pub without scampi, ridiculous. So ordered their award winning cod and chips. It tasted ok but I could have done better in any fish and chip... More

On first visit was told item i ordered[lasagne] was not available. the substitute meal was ok but the mushy peas were too dry. Next day the Sunday roast was very basic and not enough on plate. The beans that manager said came with meal did not eventuate. A man on another table was heard to remark that he had to... More

Upon being seated at our table, the table was dirty, cobwebs and dirty cleaning standards evident. Manager returned to kitchen with our two roast beef dinners before informing the waitress to wipe down our table and to bring the cutlery. We declined the offer to wipe down our table as the manager came back with the food at the same... More

Worst fish and chips I have ever had. Thick solid batter, tasteless fish. Cold, boiler had broken down so sat huddled round a tiny heater. Slow service. The whole place seemed grubby and run-down. Even the orange juice and lemonade had to be replaced because something was off. Very disappointing.

Popped in for a meal with husband and son. Have been a regular for a long time so know not to expect too high a standard. However, a new menu and asked for salmon nicoise. Was told that couldn't order this as they haven't been able to cook any boiled eggs today? That they take too long? Not sure if... More
