The entertainment was excellent, Not laughed as much in ages . Service was spot on and they couldn't do enough for us. Truth be known this is... More

Took my daughter to the play place, which on a quiet weekday is excellent value. Made the mistake of ordering food though. 3.50 for a 10p burger, three potato smiley faces and peas for the little one and i had nachos. Should have brought my own cheese as they used squirty primula or something like. Was absolutely gutted to have... More

Ordered Chicken New Yorker (hunters chicken) as I do when I go to any of these pubs. Came with a cheese single on top, not a slice of cheddar cheese, a full on orange cheese single the cheap stuff you buy from asda when you're having a massive BBQ. Just don't understand how a pub can run out of cheese.... More

We recently took my family here for my birthday and to allow the little ones to play for a bit and despite the play area being a tad bit manic the overall experience was great. The only down side was the restaurant was a tad bit cold, that's why it's not a 5. We ordered the XXL burger which I'd... More

We recently visited here on a weekday evening, and must say we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and service we received, part of a chain they have a standard company menu with what i can only describe as an american influence with the burgers, ribs, pulled pork etc, (though why everyone has to sell pulled pork...

I blame myself really for going back here after I promised myself I was never going back here ever again, but we were invited to celebrate a birthday. Our waitress was lovely and very helpful, but I had to clean a high chair myself for my son. Only half our meals came out. They were very apologetic, but our meals... More

I visited on the 31st August - A busy Sunday afternoon. I walked into a busy restaurant, and expected to wait an eternity for a table - This wasn't the case. I was greated within 2 minutes of arrival by a friendly member of the managment team, who swiftly sweated us at a clean table. He then offered us drinks,... More
