“great food and staff once again (well I thought so)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Its only scored 4 out of 5 this time because one of our party got a chicken burger that he said was very dry and didn't taste nice at all. The rest of the party thought our dinners where wonderful but we all went for the Sunday carvery. The staff as usual where first class and a manager came over when he seen the chicken burger had not been eaten to see what the problem was infact the kids insisted he ran out from the kitchen I never saw had my back to it lol. Will go again soon we visit here regularly

“Nice pub & staff....dreadful overpriced food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

This is a nice place to enjoy a pint. It's a nice pub and the floor staff are very helpful and friendly. The bar staff are a bit snappy though, although they do look under pressure as there's always a queue at the bar.

I've eaten here several times and its never been good. I've had the chip shop buffet which was barely edible and cost around £8. I also had a chicken burger & chips which was a soggy lump of chicken which had been thrown onto a bun full of lettuce and placed next to several huge undercooked chips. I'm sure it cost me the best part of £9 as well! This place serves pub grub and charges restaurant prices, which is bad enough but it's a complete disaster when they can't even cook pub grub well.

The James Watt serves better food at a cheaper price. This place has much nicer surroundings though. As I said, it's a very decent pub, if you're hungry head 50 yards across the street to McDonalds
