Consistent good welcome.

Always a good meal and a friendly welcome. Also a good place to take family and those in a wheelchair. Good accessibility and helpful staff.

We are local to this pub and have used it for many years. Over the past 10 years There has been a slow and steady decline in the food standard, quality, quantity and general feel of the place. We still use but feel it's not the place it use to be.

In fairness we went at 6pm on a Wednesday so I could forgive the atmosphere being non existent but the service and food were shocking. At the start of our meal there was a waitress working who clearly knew what she was doing but after she took our order she finished her shift. We were left with a group of... More

Very nice venue ideal place for meeting with friends and family a good location not far from Cannock, Lichfield ,Walsall Birmingham. One piece of advice book Friday to Sunday if you have a large party or you may have a long wait. The staff are very friendly and polite and the food is delicious.

Only down side was poor portion size of my my order from board although the other meals were of a generous portion. Overall a good visit, value for money and will... More

Remodernised and taken away some of the atmosphere, lost its sparkle since being took over by a chain. Meals are still good but in my opinion there a bit pricey compared to to the other resturants in the area. Would go again but need to save up first.
