I called in here for a quick meal with a couple of friends, we had three meals and three drinks all for under £23.00. The service was excellent and the staff very cheerful and appear to enjoy their work. It’s less than five minutes from Jun.22 on the M1, very easy to find with loads of car parking and it’s... More

Basic menu lots of deep fried food & burgers puds a little better overall not too bad if dining with young children. If dry outside garden seems ok. Not for the romantic meal for 2 or a business lunch.

We called in here yesterday for a snack, expectations not high but as I say we only wanted a snack, my husband ordered a sandwich this was just ok, chips cold, however, my concern was my meal, I ordered mushrooms in a garlic cream sauce. Well never ever have I experienced such disgusting quality, the sauce that swamped the four... More

Good value food and good service by all of the staff, sign up with your email to get offers and a bottle of wine on your birthday. Best to book a table as can busy.

If money is tight & you are not that fussed about the quality of your food, or the way it is cooked, then go for it!

I hadn't visited this pub for a few years.. Impressed by the size of restaurant and food was cheap and cheerful. A bit of a 'production line' feel. Chaotic atmosphere, foul smelling toilets which every time doors opened the strong urinal odour came through. Kids running wild so not ideal unless you are with your young ones. Personally would not... More

We went for a drink as going to a wedding later in the year. Had a baquette each which were fine. A tired venue but a comprehensive menu not bad value for the prices
