Four of us sat in cramped conditions, having booked a table some time before. My understanding of a Specials Board is exactly that. Breaded Place at £9.75 must have come out of a box, being hard & crusty. The chips were mostly hard as well, with two spinning to the floor when my fork tried to pierce them! Nothing special...

Haven't been to this pub for several and loved the update it's had since the last time I went. Great mix of country pub and restaurant feel. Great pint of Brains SA and a good selection on the menu. Food arrived quickly and was delicious for the price. Looking forward to return for an evening meal sometime soon.

Typical Brains Chain Pub - I have been here many times, normally tend to go here during the summer time as the outdoor section is lovely with a large field next to it for friends or kids or play ball games in with a surrounding wall. The food is pretty much the same as all Brain Chain Pubs. Reasonable and... More

We were a party of 17 last night. We had a lovely area all sat in the corner. Plenty of choice for all ages. The meals all arrived together. We did have to wait about 45 mins for our food but it was busy and there was 17 of us. Some of us had the chicken and mushroom special and... More

This pub is a hit or miss type of place. some times you can really have a nice meal and other times it's not so good but on this occasion it was not that good.. I'm a person that eats out a lot and have been to many of the brains franchises and find this 1 to be unpredictable on... More
