Reasonable food, gets very busy with children

The food here isn't too bad - the portions are large, but the quality is a bit lacking, if the meat in the steak pie is anything to go by. Still, it's good value for the price.

Well this pub restaurant has been up and down over the past years so on a recent visit with my family i didnt expect too much. However, i was pleasantly surprised... staff were friendly and efficient, especially Lauren (or that maybe Laura) food was absolutely fine and we had a lovely time. Very good!

Handy for local airport hotels around Horley. Choose from the specials and you can save a bit of money. We ate here and it is ok.... not the cleanest .... but food was hot and freshly cooked - so fitted the bill

We visited here when we had an overnight stay nearby before our trip to Lanzarote. The food was very good for the price and we found the staff friendly. We were amused by the waitress, who could only carry one plate at a time. :) We would definitely visit next time we are down that way.

We had to put napkins on the seating to stop our clothes from getting dirty. The place needs a good clean or revamp. We wont visit again. We asked one of the serving staff for... More

Cheap prices but has a really run down feel to the place,needs money spent and a good manager to bring it up to a decent standard. Not enough interested staff serving, however our meal was hot and very good value, at the moment it would be my eatery of last resort
