After browsing the menu we decided to go for two easy options - Burger and Chips and Ham, Egg and Chips and enjoy the live band warming up. It could not have been more than five minutes... More

A nice pub with good beer and what looked like decent food. Unfortunately when we visited on Sunday we were driven away by an out of tune pub singer before we had chance to eat. To be fair to him he had an army of (probably tone deaf) fans!

The atmophere is buzzing on the dance floor later in the evening (especially at weekends) & chilled during the day. There is a large outside seating area with picnic style bench/table seating c/w parasols, some area's covered by halogen heaters for when times... More

Been in here a few times over the past couple of years for the evening entertainment which is very good as you get live groups for free. Went in there on the 6th March for a meal for the first time. The meal was ok, steak cooked to my liking and hot too. Food and drinks are reasonably priced. Would... More
