Two of choose the white bait starters and were both disappointed with the less than fresh of... More

We have visited this Pub about three times in the last year. We have always been very satisfied until last night. Our friends and us were very disappointed with the meals. Certainly not up to their usual standard. When asked how our food was, we told them...........but no one acted upon this. So it is highly unlikely that we will... More

I have eaten here several times and have always been happy with the food and service. When the sun is out it has a nice outdoor play area for children. Will 100% be returning!

Thank you for your review and are sorry you felt disappointed with your visit. Experience has taught us that large groups ordering separately often leads to delays and this is why when there is sufficient lead time we request an advanced order from large groups. This also enables us to deliver all the meals together avoiding couples meals being separated... More

-Service time for food (& drink for that matter) is ridiculous! Only 1 member of staff behind the bar on a Sunday evening is not good enough. -Extremely rude staff with no customer service skills whatsoever! -Stingy portion sizes. Don't waste your time & money- I certainly won't be again!!
