Excellent food at amazing price

had a lovely evening here. Was a "beat the clock" offer on meaning you pay the time you sit down. For example if you sit at your table at 6.47 you pay 6.47 for your main meal. An amazing offer. We decided not to have starters but the choice was vast. I had the chicken fajitas whilst my partner... read more

Very nice food, friendly staff. Nice presentation of the food, love the beef fajitas! Drinks slightly more expensive than some other pubs/restaurants in town and not much choice for ales.

We popped in one afternoon and enjoyed the lunch menu so much that we booked a table for the evening. We were so pleased we did. The food was lovely and the service was excellent. The staff were so polite. We even struck lucky for a two-for-one price bonus.

Lovely lunch here once again,the standards are always high and the staff are very pleasant,and friendly. Food is always freshly cooked and tasty,really can't fault it at all. The soup and panini is a great option,reasonably priced too. Really like the club sandwich too,but it is a big eat.Keep up the good work.

Well! Lovely place with great staff. I drank a raspberry mojito and the Drumstick Lolly cocktail which were both absolutely delicious! For food I ate the nachos with chilli beef which again was stunning! I paid £21 for my drinks and food which was reasonable. My friends ordered macaroni which i tried and it was great. The fajitas looked incredible... More

My wife and I had lunch here and took a meal deal. We both had scampi and chips followed by a scone with jam and cream. Delicious food at a very reasonable price.

The food was delicious, and because it was busy and we had to wait approximately 5 extra minutes for our food to come we got free drinks on the house. The atmosphere was very friendly and can not wait to come back :)
