On our last day we popped in for a snack but were told only roast dinners.. Even though we hadn't booked a slot the staff were very... More

We had a lovely time here. We socialised here 2 out of the 4 nights of our holiday. The team here were lovely & so welcoming. We took part in the pub quiz, which was a laugh. We recommend going to that but head down early as it gets quite busy. Great buzz in this place, they do all sorts... More

If you want sophistication then this place is not for you. If you want a basic bar with friendly staff, basic but very tasty food, and all at very good prices then this is the place for you

Hi Thanks for the review, Must have been a busy day if the cleaner was helping hand out the food. Her brief is to help when we are very busy. She also only sweeps and mops the unoccupied tables. That's something we and even her are very particular about. As to being on a side street. We have 5 major... More
