Average food, unpleasant staff

The food was average, I ordered a ceasar salad with chicken, but there was barely any chicken in it. The staff didn't take the effort to simply smile at us and be polite, they seemed annoyed for having customers. I wouldn't visit this place again.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review, we will take your feedback on board. We usually receive comments about our meals being too big, so I haven't actually received critique before about small portions - so not sure what's gone wrong. I would have been cooking for you, so sorry you didn't enjoy your meal. Similarly we usually... More

Ate here for dinner one night. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Menu was extensive and included all the usual pub favourites, plus extra seafood. Food was good - nothing spectacular but solid pub good at reasonable prices. We would definitely eat here again.

Lovely meal and great friendly service. Would recommend. A tad busy during school holidays. Bookings essential. As you may wait awhile for meals especially if you have children who are hungry. 9/10

Thanks for the kind words, the holidays are generally a challenging time & it sometimes takes a little longer for meals. We usually encourage customers to order kids meals as entrees, so they get their meals a bit quicker. We're glad you had pleasant experience & thanks for the great score, We hope to see you again.

We didn't book and the place was packed but managed to find a table. The staff were really under the pump but they handled it really well. Very friendly.

We ate in here after the motor hotel, obviously not as nice a location but much nicer pub. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the food was nice, the price of the drinks area but higher than the Motor hotel though. Goods place to go for good honest pub food.

Food came out so quickly we timed it at 11 minutes after reading the last review! The portions were massive and the quality is better then you would expect for the price that you pay. It... More

Ate here several evening meals with our Daughter, son in law and friends. Meals were freshly cooked and prices were reasonable. Drinks available at pub prices. The tavern was not overly busy when we ate there so service was reasonably fast.
