Good pub food

good menu, maybe a little over priced, the cook-yourself steaks looked great. Beautiful old pub, friendly staff.

Beautiful old pub inside with ornate wood paneling and some memorabilia around to dining room. You can either cook you own steak, sausage or fish or have the chef prepare it. Has 3/4 pool tables and a good range of beers on tap. Salad was warm and a bit ordinary and the steaks reasonable. Indoor or outdoor dining is available.... More

This place is enormous! Food was good value but nothing special. You can cook your own if that's your thing. Not much interaction with staff but they were ok. If you want to go to a pub this has everything you need, pool tables, outdoor seating, the lot. If you want a good meal out, I'd go elsewhere.

Although reasonably good value, that's because they don't have to pay someone to cook your steak - you cook it. Nice interior which fills up quickly, but the overflow is into a large beer-garden where smoking is allowed. Would you enjoy your food, however nice, if a waft of 2nd hand smoke from someone else's lungs enveloped your face as... More

the pub has a great ambience, but the food is mediocre. The saving grace is resch's on tap. Only go there because it is convenient.

The pub has comfortable setting both out-doors and indoor. The staff are friendly and efficient. It caters for large parties as well. Our last two patronage were both parties of 10 including a child. The steaks (cook to your own taste) were good quality and even better if you go on days where there are specials on. All in all,... More
