With a background in Catering I know how difficult large party food can be , so it was with some trepidation that I went out for my work's Christmas dinner. I need not have worried however, as it was very good, hot, with loads of vegetables. I had a small cheese tart followed by duck and a desert for £12.... More

I took my parents here whilst they were down in Dorset for a holiday. The last time we ate here the food and service were much better. It is in need of an update, which I have been told is happening. The food was not great but ok, the ham with eggs was very fatty and my parents hardly touched... More

Its over a year since I last visited the Spa,when I found it very good. Since then my daughter reported that it had declined and was no where as good as it had been. Since The Beefeater was full we decided to try The Spa again. First indications were not so good. Plenty of spaces in the car park where... More

And thats a decent, friendly place. Food is good and they do the standard array of drinks to cover everyones taste. Ive spent many many evenings here My only slight downside would be it isnt the cheapest place. But the food is high quality so it offsets it a little

This is a really busy pub which serves excellent food. Monday is always popular with its 2 for 1 grill night but there are always special deals whichever night you choose. A good family pub with outside seating as well - and it doesn't break the bank!

Visited recently with my family. Approached the bar and a young man behind it rudely shouted at us " you can't order food until all these tills have finished being used!" Was quite taken aback as we hadnt even had chance to find a table let alone look at the menu & only wanted to order a drink!? As first... More
