A nice Meal had.

Like other contributors, my wife and I have eaten here before. I was disppointed to read a number of reviews from discontented customers. I always give a true report and have to say that when we visited on the evening of 29/09/2015 we had a nice meal. On arrival, the place was very busy in... read more

We turned up without booking and they found us a table straight away. They were very busy but the food was not too long arriving. I had the vegetarian option of Mushroom Stroganoff which was very tasty. My Wife had the Gammon which was also very good. The Staff were friendly and helpful. All in, a very nice pub meal.

Eaten at this restaurant twice last year was very good but not so good this year. Food not good, staff not really interested and buildings in need of a bit of TLC. Do yourself a favour and cross the road to The Albert.

This restaurant looks very good from the outside but when in there it is a different place. We waited to be served only to be ignored by the staff, appalling service appalling food. We recommend never go near this restaurant

Typical pub restaurant with food piled high especially if your meal included chips. Too greasy. No atmosphere. Not recommended.

Went in for early evening meal. Bit drab inside, despite beautiful exterior. Service was quick and efficient, however Sunday roast was very average. Meat was tough, and basic veg. Probably wouldn't go back.

I visited this restaurant on my holidays and was extremely disappointed from the start. The menu was limited and missed some of the pub classics, such as a lasagne. I chose in the end the 'classic burger' and after an extremely long wait, my food arrived undercooked!!! My burger was pink and my parents meals were oozing with blood! I... More
