Value for money without economising on taste

We called in about 9pm on a Thursday night. There were diners in but there was also a good number of vacant tables. We were allocated the one right next to the kitchen. I appreciate tables are allocated to smooth service but as I work in catering I didn't want to feel like I was helping the chef so... read more

Ate here on a Friday night and it was buzzing! Live music on - amazing singer with acoustic guitar. Food was good and the portion size right. Amazing chandeliers over the bar! Well worth a visit either just for drinks or for food.

Took some English visitors here and was greatly impressed! Two courses for £10 food was excellent, staff helpful and friendly. Being such a large venue it's harder to get the ambience right, softer lighting and probably live music would make this venue excellent

All washed down with a bottle of Kopparberg Naked Apple (A great alternative to the chemical taste of Magners) Another happy customer - great service... More

We have stayed several times at the Premier Inn ( opposite ) and have passed this place by as we thought it was just too 'posh' and would be expensive.......How wrong were we!! The food - 2 courses for £10 was a steal, great quality, hot, large portions and the service was simply EXELLENT. Liam - the guy who looked... More

Called in and was really surprised by the deal on and the choices available. I would defo recommend the fish and chips. 2 x medium pieces of fish and thick homemade chips. Quick service if you are tight for time on a lunch break but plenty of people were settling in for the day and who could blame them
