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 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

Used a Groupon voucher for a meal at McDaniels which was great. Started with chicken goujons followed by chilli. The quality of the beef was superb as was the chilli itself. In fact it was so good I could have eaten more. My husband had the steak pie which he declared was one of the best he had tasted. With... More

Thought the two fish and chips deal for £10.00 was great value for money and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would certainly visit again.
