We have a friend who likes to eat here when he visits, so we have been three times. The first time was entertaining with the humorous menu, good food, decent ales and very funny host. The atmosphere was lively and very jolly. The second visit was lack lustre by comparison, with no convivial maitre d' and what seemed like watered-down... More

Hi Yvonne, Thanks for your kind words, we try very hard with all the staff to make your time with us special (sounded a bit American then !!). Especially for kids they love the unusual bits of the Pie. Pete Pie More

Big portions a plenty here! Try the black pudding fritter starter with poached egg....it was yummy! We followed up with the famous "Mick's Grill" literally served on a shovel! So much you can't eat it all! Give it a go.....interesting surroundings and good, wholesome food! The pies are too many to mention - so much choice!

Im glad you mentioned about the Micks Grill as I've just bought a new piece of equipment to cook our grills so we have an even cooking. there better... More

It is such a great place. Will need to go back 100 times before I even begin to get bored. The decor, food and staff are so spot on. It is the Disneyland of Pubs.

We hadn't been here for a few years & sorry to say we won't be rushing back. First thing we noticed was how slippy the floor was. Then the cobwebs perhaps it's to add to the atmosphere. It was Wednesday night we did book and we were shown to our table right away. We all decided to have the 2... More

Hi Guys, Glad you mentioned the slippery floor, we've just replaced it all with a non slip flooring 😀 As you only paid £9 for two pies (great deal) you could have had peas/salad as a side. Yes the cobwebs etc are part of the deal, we clean the pub every day. You either get what we do or you... More

Dear Jim, As always there are two sides to every issue. You came into pub on Saturday night and decided to sit down on a reserved table, even tho we have a huge sign stating "Wait here to be seated".

Great food and beer. Always go on a Wednesday and have been tonight. 27/1. Go every couple of months with mates. Really is great value, 2for1 night. Pies are amazing and you must try the Nachos as a starter. Best to book as it's always busy. Can't wait to go again

It was a challenge but not for the right reasons, pastry horns cold, pastry lid thick and unappetising, there was plenty of meat but the gravy was quite bland - all of the other pies were far superior - very disappointing pie

Susan T, Owner at Mad O'Rourkes Pie Factory, responded to this review

Hi Joanne Thanks for your comments, yes the horns are cold as they are more for show as if we used hot horns they would flop over and lose the effect. So glad all other pies were great,try the minted lamb pie it's the best. Pete Pie More
