Amazing

We went with family, was amazed. Service good and quick. Portions huge and cooked as you requested. My son in law is veggie, so he started with garlic bread it came out the size of a large pizza. Would definitely go again next time I,m in IOM.

Efficient staff and the beer is excellent, but expect a noisy experience if you go during TT week !. There is a good variety of beers, and the pub is served with televisions to watch the sport etc.

There was nothing to complain about with the food but the service was poor. First of all they said they had a table for 4 but not for 5 yet there were many tables empty and another chair could have been added to the 4's. So we began a 2 hour wait for a table. Then the general service throughout... More

We enjoyed two well cooked steaks and a gorgeous banoffee pie desert. Noticed someone on another table had the steak pie, which I'm glad I avoided, as it was that dreadful dish of stew with a slice of air filled pastry that many establishments serve these days! Service, as others have said, was a little hit and miss but once... More

Ate here in August 2015 with family. This was my first visit. I was impressed with the quality of the food, and the choices available. All my party, apart from one, ordered burgers which were very well received as were the desserts, with the sticky toffee pudding being voted one of the best desserts ever!
