Very slow service. Wine warm (fridge poorly stocked). Tables and menus dirty and sticky. Seating areas outside dirty and tired. In major need of refurb.

Staff told us there would be a 15 minute wait for food that was fine but 15 turned into 1 hour and combined with a screaming hungry toddler was very annoying we asked for the food to be a takeaway as we just wanted to get out! Food was okay nothing to shout about they really need to hire another... More

This is (was) my local for the odd sausage, beans, chips with the kids...or a visit with friends for basic pub grub. But now, unless you want a beefburger...cooked in lots of silly different ways...you have to go somewhere else. Sorry, but I now go somewhere else. Sad!

Having read other reviews I was slightly nervous of what we would find but was pleasantly surprised. Our meals arrived in a round 30 minutes which was not a problem as there was plenty of chat and catching up around the table. The... More
