What a waste of time

My wife called in here to book a table for New Years Day lunchtime, a specific table was booked. When we arrived at five to one, the table had not been reserved and we were told that there would be a 45 minute wait for food, even though I would calculate that the pub was less than a quarter full... read more

We called into the clipper on Sunday 11th January at lunchtime. I was a bit worried because it was quite empty and on previous visits it's always been busy. The staff explained that they were shutting that evening for refurbishment but were still offering a limited menu. I really wish we had gone somewhere else. Both my husbands meal and... More

My wife and I decided to take our two kids out for a nice meal early in the New Year. We stumbled across The Clipper and despite what could have been a comedy of errors we had a really good night. In fairness, they were honest about the problems they had experienced with deliveries over the festive period but even... More

Where do I start?...Firstly walked in and had to wait almost 3 mins to initially be served, before waving one of the two girls on shift down! One was just stood talking to a bunch of lads, and her friend finally got our attention (the girl with the "eyebrows" and facial piercings) and was very, very rude. Me and my... More

We went to the clipper for lunch on a Sunday afternoon with our daughter, our 2 friends and their daughter. The experience started off well enough, clean table, baby changing facilities and a daytime menu of 2 meals for £8.99, we knew it wouldn't be gourmet at that price but thought it would be worth a try. I ordered the... More

Popped in here to while away some time and to escape the rain.We had a browse at the menu. Looked like great value!!! Decided we'd treat ourselves to a cooked breakfast and so we both had the traditional breakfast at £1.99.... Sausage, bacon, beans, fried egg, with a choice of hash browns and toast or grilled tomato and mushroom. All... More

Came in at 2pm for a snack. Just a bowl of chips! Had the baby with us too (4 months old) and he needed to feed. Sat down to feed and was told to move because he's underage! We're hardly likely to give a 4 month old alcohol. Extremely rude staff. Why should we have to move. Ageist! I'd understand... More

We arrived at the family friendly place know as The Clipper to eat. We sat down and went to order our drinks. They arrive. We all sit there and sip them. Then one of our family members went to order our food. He comes back and says "it will be a 10-15min wait". 45mins go past. The same family member... More

The food was very reasonably priced, nothing special but nice enough for what you're paying. (Two meals for £8.50 I think? Can't go too far wrong with that!)

This breakfast was excellent value at £3.50. 2 each of sausages, eggs, hash fries plus 3 rashers of bacon, mushroom, tomato, toast. Superbly cooked. Go there!
