Great place for lunch

Visited in a group of 6 for a birthday meal. Very enjoyable experience. Good menu selection and all the dishes we chose were good quality and nicely presented. I chose the rib-eye steak which was excellent. Would definitely recommend

This is a relatively normal looking pub, swirly carpets, dark brown chairs and tables, it is clean and the staff are very friendly. Now for the best bit, the food!!!. I cannot recommend the Asian dishes enough, cooked by authentic Asian chefs. If you ever get the chance, only when on special limited times to order the Beef rending you... More

Hadn't been to this place for a while and knew the menu had been revised, so thought we would give it a try. First impressions were not good when our waitress didn't know what beers were available and we were not given a wine list with our menus. First course arrived in reasonable time, but once finished, we then had... More

A real pub - good food, drink and staff. Our waitress was on her first day, but was really attentive - friendly and efficient. We had a toddler with us for a lunchtime visit, and a higher chair and cushions were provided immediately. It's nice to have a decent local pub again!

What a great pub, choice of Thai or traditional fare. Excellent value and the waiting staff were fantastic. Also one of the friendliest pubs we have been in for a long time, great for just a pint as well. Great work guys look forward to my next visit, wish I had been sooner.

This is a friendly and welcoming place to pop in for a drink or a coffee with four legged friend. The restaurant (without hound) is very pleasant and the food is good. Service is friendly if a little s;low at busy times. Try the bubble and squeak with egg on top!

I have been here a couple of times. The food on both occasions was excellent. The atmosphere is cost and inviting. Prices were reasonable. Portion size was very generous. Set in very nice surroundings.

Popped in for a drink and a snack yesterday and went back with our daughter today for lunch. Some excellent Thai food both days. Portion size is large so be careful not to over order. Nice pleasant service and all good value. Will be a regular lunch spot for us.
