A good traditional family pub, a very good choice of menu, not all traditional pub food, you go to the bar to order, from then the service is very good. Very reasonably priced, overall, good casual dining.

Had been here a few times before, and always liked it, but wont be going back again, mainly because of the attitude of the staff (apart from a young lad who was trying his best). Family and I went for lunch on a weekday and the restaurant was pretty much empty. We waited an hour for our main, and was... More

The food here is absolutely outstanding, but the service is amateur at best. We literally had to keep reminding them of our existence. It took over an hour and we had ordered at the bar to try to help things along. Only go if you have time, a lot of time. My friend who lives locally had warned me that... More

This was our second visit and we were not disappointed. On both occasions the food has been delicious and the service has been spot on.

We came in Sunday afternoon, only 3 of us. The place didn't seem particularly busy. We all had roasts which were farely good but they had run out of pigs in blankets and cauliflower cheese which was disappointing but we understood, they'd obviously been busy earlier. However, we couldn't overlook the appalling service. Our waiter was clearly struggling and there... More

Visited here on 1st August for an evening meal with friends and left never wanting to return again! Booked a table for 7:15pm and ordered our starters and main courses. Starters arrived at 8:20pm, they were ok but nothing special. As a main I ordered the lemon, pea and mint risotto which was definately not worth £10! The plate looked... More

I hate writing bad reviews, but I feel this is a must, as this was probably the worst meal and service I have ever received at a restaurant. Firstly, it took over an hour for our starters to arrive and considering the restaurant was not overly busy, and we were not the only customers who were sat waiting for over... More

After our last visit we though the Shoulder had cracked the service issues but our recent visit proved that, once again, they have taken their eye off the ball. Table service seems to have gone; we had to find a table and then order at the bar. The table next to us remained uncleared which was not pleasant to look... More

Popped in here for a pub meal on a Saturday night. The pub was busy but service was quick and efficient. Our meal was served quite quickly and it was hot! The staff were friendly and the food was tasty, also good value for money! It's an establishment we've used many times in the past and we've never been disappointed,... More
