Good food & prices! Defiantly improved since last visited over a year ago, possibly new owners. Staff friendly. Service was good, didn't wait long at all for the food.

Well run bar with plenty of screens to watch the sport and a modern friendly atmosphere. I had Guinness and a steak burger and both were excellent. Plenty of customers eating which is always a sign of good food.

Menu has improved again. Regularly visit with work colleagues. Try steak baguette or chicken fajitas. Food good, kitchens clean and toilets clean. Staff are pleasant and efficient.

We have been regulars for meals which are normally very good but recently the food has taken a down turn. My lasagne was stodgy and my wife's hunters chicken was dry.
