fizz friday

Half price fizz on a Friday, what more could you ask for. Sat in beer garden in glorious sunshine, didn't try food but it looked very good. Nice looking establishment on picturesque Square.

This is an excellent place to stay and to eat. There was good parking just outside the pub and a very pleasant welcome in the pub. The restaurant is very busy but service is prompt and efficient and the food to a very high standard. We have booked to return in September.

The fish and chips is well worth a visit but the service is very very slow. It could be coz it's very busy but if you have to wait 25+ minutes for food it gets a bit annoying.

Good beer! Did get the impression jollity wasnt appreciated by some of the locals though as we did get numerous "looks" from others in the pub. Overall a nice place but a bit more of a freindly welcome would be appreciated.

Visited the Borough on Tuesday expecting it to be fairly quiet. Phoned and asked for a booth as wanted some quiet space were told when we arrived as there was only 2 of us this wasn't possible. Why weren't we told that at the time of booking as we would have went elsewhere! Very busy and very noisey. Ordered a... More

A cremated burger shows that the kitchen and management simply don't care. So don't bother to waste your time or money. Sorry

We visited here last May to surprise my sister for her birthday and the restaurant was lovely, they serve a great breakfast and wide selection of drinks. My fav is the sweets they sell at the bar! Recently we visited and the bar man struggled slightly upon making our drinks having to reiterate what I ordered but was sweet enough... More

Ate here one lunch with work friends and we ordered off the school dinner menu which is a good value for money. I ordered the club sandwich which was great but comes with chips and i think it would be nice served with a bit of salad for presentation as it looks bland just coming out with chips. The service...

Visited this place last minute when I was let down by the Sun Inn - I had the pulled pork pie in cider, leek and mustard sauce - very tasty. The chips are well cooked too with a an ample serving of fresh seasonal veg. Good friendly service and apart from the £12.95 slightly pricey in my opinion. It was... More

I had a brilliant evening with my sister a while back. We booked the meal deal and comedy club ticket for £12.50. Not a huge selection available in the deal but something for everyone, including vegetarian options. We paid £1 extra to have the 4oz steak meal and it was well worth it. Though not overly large portions (school dinner... More
