I was staying in the nearby Holiday Inn and decided I wanted a Sunday Lunch, the holiday in dont do roasts, so I decided to venture out to this bar. A little understated and a little lost next to the tenpin bowling and, what looked like, a desolate premier inn. This bar was simply delectable to eat at.
I had the roast beef and the food was hot, tasty and didnt turn up like it was microwaves 10 seconds earlier. The only mark down I would give it is that the yorkshire pudding looked like someone had added it after the food was platted but never the less it was delicious. I decided to skip the dessert because I was so full after my main course but I saw some of the others that came out of the kitchen area and they looked delicious too.
I was met at the front door by a gentleman who asked if it was a table for 3, which was humorous because I was there on my own. Great natured staff who do a good job without having to 'try' at it. There was a pleasant lady who took my food order, who had what sounded like an eastern european accent. Anyone who has ever been to most of these countries know that as rule they are pleasant mannered and pleasant to look at!! (Ok so I got a minor crush on the waitress!)
The Pub has an old west country feel to it despite the fact its sat next to a dual carriage way, a premier inn and a bowling alley. Anyone looking for an adult only setting should probably give this a miss and its very family friendly, as you would expect from and old west country feeling bar. The bar is finished in wood all around and tastefully decorated.
The bottom line: Cost
The items on the menu were reasonably priced for a bar meal, and the quality of the food was excellent. for a main meal and a soft drink you are talking £10 - £12 per person, depending on what you order
