We are usually good customers to this pub/restaurant, but on this occasion we left before we even had chance to order!! We sat down near the entrance with our 7 month old child, to then me rudely told that we can't have him in this area, as if it was a great inconvenience to them.. (4PM and the pub was... More

I visited here during the half term break with my family and sat round near where the children's play area is. Although the children's play area is fantastic - play stations, Xbox's etc and soft play areas too, the area in which it was in, was roasting hot. This was despite the air conditioning being on.

Me and my husbands family often visit this restaurant when we are up North. It's a big restaurant and has a really reasonable priced menu. There is always something new to try. Alternatively you can always go for the carvey which has never disappointed. There is a good sized play area for children under 5, although children up to 8-9... More

Slow service and poor quality food - portions big but this doesn't make up for the service. No waiting to get seated just slow getting food

They were and we ordered pate and toast and prawn cocktail to start, then rare surf and turf and seafood linguine. The starters can... More
