Saw an advert in the paper for half price meals Monday to Friday. This is on everything but extras and includes desserts. Went today and the cost of the meal wouldn't have covered the cost of the meat in the Steak and Ale Pie. I hate pies with tops put on, but the meat was delicious.. Sons and wife's meals... More

Always has the sky games on, always good pub grub, beers can be expensive. My pub of choice for the footie - and has a great play area out back for the kids too. Weekend evenings can be very busy as it's one of the bigger pubs in town, but midweek football, pint and a burger is top draw.

If you want a honest down to earth menu, the hairy dog is the place to go. It's normal down to earth pub grub. It has normal pub fare, like burgers, pies and pasta. They also have a specials board. If you do choose to go for a carvery, prepare to wait as it can be popular. You get a... More

Visited for lunch, food was nice - although the staff struggled with items not quite like the menu. One of our party had Carvery who queued up for over 1/2 hour by which time we had eaten our food. Not a great choice if gluten free. Waitress cleared the table but instead of removing items stood at one end and... More

There were only four of us but still food arrived on different times. The chicken wings had some feathers left on them that grossed me out. It didnt seem to be hot either just warm. On a good side, the portions are really generous but personally I would prefer quality to quantity. Just average.

The food was good and very fair in price. Very quick service. The play area for children outdoors was massive and kept my kids entertained for hours.
