We went here as a family group of 10 following a funeral. It was the only place in Driffield that could accommodate all of us at short notice for lunch. The food is general pub fare and the portions are generous. Prices are reasonable and the staff are friendly and efficient, though there are too... read more

We went at lunch time and got three toasties with chips and three drinks for £13, the food was tasty and there was plenty of it. The toilets and place itself very clean. The staff very friendly. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone visiting Driffield.

Have been 4 times. Stingy portions. Poorly cooked. Manager gets a bigger bonus by putting on too few staff. Avoid at all costs

where else can you get two hot meals and two alcoholic drinks for just over a tenner?Food is tasty, and unlike other reviewers we found the staff friendly and the place including toilets clean and tidy.There was an unfortunate influx of Mums who seemed to think the rest of us would enjoy their precious child screaming constantly,girls you were wrong!!!

We visit this place now and again as the food is quite nice and the pub is child friendly. Today, I went with a friend who lives away and she commented how rude a member of the staff was when she was served, no eye contact, etc. After lunch, I walked down the pub to take my 3 year old... More
