Best steak pie in town

A little quiet bar at the end of Whitehall Crescent serving lunch and dinner until 8pm. Had lunch last year and dinner recently. Nice wholesome food and friendly service. Free wifi

Visited this pub earlier on in the week with a Groupon voucher. Came in and the place was dead, woman which I thought was the manager sitting behind the bar on her phone. Went over to the bar to tell her we were using the Groupon voucher, and she said just come back to the bar with our order. I... More

This venue really needs upgrading. It's very shabby looking and dirty. When the waitress came to take our order, she continued to speak to us (myself and my younger sister) but went over to clean another table! I never gave my order in this manner as I found it to be extremely rude to which she replied "I'm listening". We... More

We visited having been before, however didn't realise how filthy the restaurant was. You enter the doorway and there has been no effort to keep out grim, dirt and cigarette ends. The tables and condiments are sticky and the floor is filthy. Time of visit 5pm and so the staff had time to make an effort with basic cleaning but... More

Visited with a Groupon voucher, did not even stat to eat. Place is filthy, you could write your name in the dust on the floor. Is a shame as it was once a good pub. Would not go back.

Tasty fish and chips with mushy peas and tartare sauce, good value with groupon deal. Very laid back with no airs and graces, friendly staff and quick service.

The pub's hygiene is zero as at the main door there are cigarettes every where, not the best welcome. The ceiling full of wholes, needs repairs, urgently.Dust in every corner where the seats and tables are. Now about the food, the presentation is horrendous, paper and cheap plastic containers. The paper melted and I nearly ate a piece of the... More

We had a groupon voucher to have lunch here - been here at night a few times and it's always really busy, but during the day it was really quiet! When we arrived we were the only ones in - there were less than 8 people in the whole time we were there, which is strange as the food was... More
