Good food, good service

Popped in for a quick bit of tea as we were working nearby and found it to hit the spot perfectly.

Service was first rate with attentive staff and the place itself... read more

Called here for lunch bit it took ages to get a drink, I think they are probably very understaffed. Food and drinks were ok and reasonably priced.

We visited here for dinner while staying in the area before flying from Manchester. Standard brewers fayre food which all tasted nice but the setting was more traditional and less 'manufactured looking' than most restaurants in this chain. 5 of us ate and drank for £18 thanks to vouchers and the loyalty scheme so great value.

We ate here both nights, good selection, good service and you could book a table. The food is traditional pub food, which was hot and well presented.

After having an unpleasant meal a couple of weeks ago we revisited this establishment on invitation from Sam the Manager & found the service and food back to the usual high standards. We will be defiantly visiting this establishment again. We would also like to wish Beth a very Happy Birthday for next week. We look forward to seeing you... More

Went for dinner and booked a table the day before. Although they were told the table would eb required by 8.30 the previous occupants sat nursing a drink for over 2 hours. The staff were excellent and handled what could have been a difficult situation with aplomb. Its only a pub but the rack of baby ribs were perfect, apart... More
