Beer is hit and miss. Staff are pleasant if ur a local. God help newcomers. Children used to be an issue but now they have a designated area it is much better. Wish management would work busy periods. They are pleasant but need to show their faces more. They do the easy shifts. Food is more than edible. It's quick... More

To start with we were told there was a 20 minute wait 1hr and 15 minutes later after people had come and gone we confronted the manager they forgot to put our buzzer no down. He then sat us down and forgot about us so half an hr later we ordered our food,... More

I use this pub a lot in the daytime to go for meals with friends, however when me and my boyfriend visited one evening it was totally a different experience. We arrived to a bunch of staring people even though I live a 5 min stroll away, we went straight to the bar and was next to get served the... More

Myself, my wife and son just went over to the winding wheel for a quick meal and drink, on Sunday lunch time. The staff and service was excellent, The food was very good and excellent value. We will certainly eat there again 10 out of 10.

I've been several times here for a midweek lunch after going to Newlife. The special deal on the menu (not sure if it is on at weekends) is excellent-a starter plus a choice of light bite meals for £4.50 plus a drink for £1-a bargain by anyone's standards! In my experience, the manager is very nice and goes out of... More

I went here for a friends birthday so he could have his first legal drink! When booking a table they wouldn't allow us. One waiter kept walking down and looking useless, the food took ages to come and we were the only ones with food orders, ours drinks were flat and they couldn't seem to care less, the food itself...
