Burgers n Steak

Visited this place twice because the burgers were awesome. They were huge and really filling. Great value for money. My husband had steak the first time which was cooked exactly as ordered and again was really good value. Service was quick and staff were friendly. Would certainly go again.

This pub is centrally located with a children's play area. Food is extremely good and freshly prepared. Toilets clean. We did find it quiet dark inside but the food and service made up for this.

Choose to eat here if you enjoy traditional pub grub with a few specials thrown in. Particularly good if you have a young family as they have ample outdoor seating under cover and a play area. Staff were also very friendly and good with kids too.

Looked promising and lots on offer on the menu however the female staff would benefit from actually concentrating on the customer (me) and taking the correct order rather than continuing to discuss her personal life with a friend at the bar while serving. The order came out wrong, all we got was a shrug from the waiter and a mumbled... More

A good value Sunday Carvery enjoyed by our fussy eating family! The service was friendly and the venue is great - outdoor play area for the kids and live music to boot. Would revisit without hesitation.

Great inn with atmosphere. We have walked passed this place year after year, but after asking for a place for Sunday lunch the spinning wheel was suggested. We found a table to accommodate the 6 of us and four had the carvery, and 2 of us had pasta dishes (which were exceptional) Will visit again.
