We enjoyed dinner here on a Saturday night and while we didn't make a reservation fortunately we were still able to get a table as it did get quite busy. There was a lot to chose from on the menu and we ended up ordering the crab cakes to start, then had meat pie and fish and chips for the... More

One of the best pubs/restaurants in Staines. The staff are all well trained and polite, always eager to accommodate you and the food is of the highest quality whether it is just a snack or a full meal. I would suggest you per book a table though as it gets extremely busy.

Great little pub with really good food and friendly service. Been here a good number of times and always leave happy. Advise booking at peek times. The food is good quality always hot and they have a good selection of specials every night.

Visited this pub for the first time and enjoyed the experience. We went as a family for Sunday lunch to find the place very busy and bustling with lots of families which was good to see. The vibe was good. The service was quick, efficient and courteous even though the servers were rushed off their feet. The roast lamb and... More

I have eaten here on a number of occasions. I visited recently with a couple of friends I hadn't seen for a while. The atmosphere of the restaurant was friendly and relaxing and allowed us to have a decent conversation. The waiting staff were great-unobtrusive but there when you needed attention. I usually choose something from the specials board as... More

We decided to have a change of restaurant from the many we have used over the years. What a delight, the food was superb, the staff friendly but reserved. The icing on the cake was that it registered that in conversation it was our 59th wedding aniversary and they served us with champagne. That I will never forget and will... More

I said I would come back, this time I brought a friend and if anything it was better than last time. I had one of the specials, Baked Monkfish one Crab and Lemon Risotto, it was fantastic and so were the profiteroles for dessert. A very special little pub with good food and lovely staff.

Went for lunch with an old friend. Ordered the pork belly which arrived beautifully presented on a bed of colcannon. Great crackling. It was hot and delicious. The service was excellent, toilets clean and comfortable, relaxing decor making me plan my next visit

Been here a couple of times in the last month. Nice decor. Good wine. Had to send back a pint last night as it was off but they changed it readily enough. Manager appeared grumpy.

I note your comments regarding of the beer. I'm sure you will appreciate that the last 4 pints in a barrel are full of sediment and we have no way of knowing when that might occur. When it does our practice is to replace the pint immediately but this is in no way a reflection of the quality of the... More
