“delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

First thoughts were if i am honest what a tatty exterior. So glad i ventured inside. Olde world pub but warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere. 2 steaks plus burger ordered. Absolutely great food. Asked for well done slightly underdone but delicious all the same.my 12 year old waxed lyrical about the burger and we left deliriously satiated. Cannot wait to try the sunday roast.

“Such a disappointing setting....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

We didn't eat, in fact we didn't even look at the menu. The pub setting is so grubby with half a dozen characters hanging around the bar, TV blaring with a football match that only the bar person appeared to be watching.
We had booked ahead, but all the tables we all grubby with soiled table cloths. It was not very warm and the bar staff seemed surprised to see us.
Having read such positive comments about this place it was a real disappointment. We left and ate elsewhere.
We must try the take away service before we can comment on the food.

“Never again, except for a takeaway”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Our low score is reflective of the atmosphere and ambience, not the food, which was very good. How unfortunate for the cook that the place where her food is served is so dreadful, with some ''colourful characters' who intrude on the delicate nature of the Asian food. We have since had a takeaway from here which was definitely the best takeaway we have had locally, but we won't sit in there to eat again, once was definitely enough!

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We ate here at lunchtime and had a fantastic meal. For starters we had spring rolls, freshly made and piping hot. I had the best Tom Yum soup i've ever tasted, full of flavour and spice, generously filled with seafood. My partner had Cambodian sizzling pork special, it was melt in the mouth delicious. Even though I was stuffed, I couldn't resist trying the Cambodian coconut rice pudding to finish, I didn't regret it, I would return just to eat it again. It was great value for money and felt as though they could charge a lot more for the quality of food being served here. We will definitely be returning very soon and recommending it to our friends.
