We went in the evening for a meal, around 10 of us, got a table and ordered from a decent range off the menu. Noone had a complaint, the fishcakes were lovely, chips of good quality and salad of good taste too, it looked fresh. A friend had the large fish and chips, so large he couldnt finish it... read more

I came here with a friend I ordered a burger and she ordered macaroni cheese and garlic bread. When my burger came the bun was soggy and the burger was over cooked. The chips that came with it was edible but would not return. My friends garlic bread at first looked organic when she bit into it this was also... More

Tasty,Freshly cooked food, reasonably priced, good choice of menu. atmosphere very good although even with tea lights the restraint was still a little on the dark side, we understand that the new owners from January 2015 are going to make some changes. Keep up the good work and SMASHING food!!!!

Went past this pub and thought we would pop in for food. The pub itself was nice but the food left a lot to be desired. Scampi and chips were overlooked and rubbery. The following day it is fair to say I felt 'ropey' and I certainly won't eat in there again.
