Cheap and cheerful chain type pub

Interesting decor that doesn't seem to know what it wants to be, traditional pub or chic wine-bar type establishment. Our food order was tasty, reasonably priced and arrived quickly. This seemed to be quite a generic chain style pub modeled on wetherspoons. Nothing wrong with the place, but if you... read more

Its one of them bars you get in all cities, with cheap drink and shots and sports on TV. Popular with stag and hens as it is very central and if you are looking for a cheap night out you cant go wrong.

Okay bar but dear. Prices must be set by someone who has not much concept of marketing. Even £2.95 would sound better ! Pricing soft drinks like this gives fuel to politicians to introduce price controls on soft drinks to aid the drink drive campaign..

We complained and the chef managed to add a few more pieces of lettuce to it but I think the worst had to be when our sticky toffee pudding arrived it was... More

I have previously given the Lost Dene good reports but after our visit in the week commencing 16th March, cracks are there for all to see. Staffing At 12-15 lunch time one member of Staff cannot look after a bar of this size, including serving drinks, taking food orders, providing cutlery/condiments, and bringing food to the tables. The wait was... More
