The welcome at the bar is a little cold, the food choice is vast and reasonably well cooked, however the steak was overcooked than asked for. The interior hasn't changed in years and a little tied, but its child friendly a good location to meet up travel wise just off the A4. The waiter was very... read more

From the moment we entered we were greeted (not really the right word!) by a rude, sullen woman. We were taken to our table. We were placed on a table for 4 even though there was 5 of us. The drinks were forgotten...twice! The starters were bland and very forgettable. The mains took an eternity to arrive even though the... More

Visited on a Sunday lunch time a couple of months back, they were very busy and the food was great, so decided it was worth another visit. Today, I think our timing was wrong, the portion was tiny, half the food on the plate was hot, the meat cold and the Yorkshire pudding as flat as a pancake, hard as... More

Most people I've spoken to say they have had good and bad experiences here, so you may be lucky! There is a good choice of dishes available, but rather pricey, especially the desserts which are are a rip off considering the portion sizes. The main meals we had during our latest visit were well presented, hot and tasty, but the... More

We came here for a Sunday lunch, and found the place quite - maybe we were early. It was a family group, and they accommodated us in one corner, by a window. Fair enough. The place looks tired and unloved, without any real charm or personality - nothing unpleasant, just meh. The menu had a reasonable choice of pub grub... More

I have given two stars only because the beer was ok the food was awful. I don't understand why people would go here as it's certainly not cheap and definately not value. There are so many better places locally like the Snooty Fox which is better.

After its refurbishment about 10 years ago we saw a great improvement and lots of fresh fish on the menu and attention to detail in the service. Now its pretty much the same as any chain pub, OK staff but not a memorable experience. Still always busy but there are many better ones around, even on the A4 within 2-3... More

We visited with our grandchildren. The service was very slow but the food was good. The toilets were 'grubby' and could have done with some attention. This is just an average pub serving average food......................
