We arrived about 6.10, ordered from the two meals for £15 pounds, we waited about 40 minutes, the fish & chips - well I've seen bigger fish fingers and the chips were well over cooked, we then sat for ages before our plates were cleared, even though staff had walked passed our table many times, I had to go to...

Called in for lunch . We arrived at 11.50, ordered within 5 mins and had to wait until 1pm for our food. We were the only customers in the place and no reason was given for the delay . The food was fine but don't go if you have any plans after

My previous review was based on a visit for lunch. My wife and I called for dinner last Saturday evening without a table reservation. Despite the place being rather full and busy we were made welcome and quickly served with a very good meal at a very fair price. We will be going back.

Been here a few times but only for drinks. Staff are always kind and friendly, had a look at the menu it's not the cheapest of places to go to for food or drink but you get for you pay for. I must go again to try a meal

We came in on Boxing Day for lunch. The service was a little slow but the food was great as always. My dad really enjoyed his steak pie and by his own admission he is fussy! We will be back soon.

We were booked at the 12 sitting and may I say the food and service were excellent. I am sad to hear people didn't enjoy the same expirence as we did , but we were a party of 12 and the food was delicious.The three choices of meat were cooked to perfection and the waiting staff were attentive. The atmosphere... More

We booked for the 3pm sitting as we thought that would be best as we wanted to take our time over the meal and thought that people with children would be booked on the 12noon sitting as 3pm is a little late for little ones to wait for their meal and we did not want to be rushed. Yes it... More
