Really good fun even if a bit more "amateur" than expected. The organisers did well to keep a small venue atmosphere with the jokers right in the thick of the audience. Well done. A tenner well spent.

Eaten here a number of times, its usually quite quiet though we do go week nights. The menu is quite good and we have probably had 80% of it and to be honest its always very good value for money. The portions are generous and the quality is always there. Lacks a bit of atmosphere, but it is a bar... More

The lovely friendly woman behind the bar gave my daughter some wooden skewers so she could toast marshmallows when we returned to our campsite. Would recommend... More

We decided to go into the town to break up the journey rather than stop at a motorway service station. The menu has a good selection of pub food plus some light meals. The service was a little slow but it was no big deal. The good was of a high standard - great steak pie and lasagne! The kids... More

a sad place with no atmosphere, there was more life in the fish tank and the bar staff were not that helpful , I saw one lady get cold soup as they forgot to heat it , might be ok for a very quick drink
