“NEVER AGAIN”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

When I walked in the whole pub smealt of dirty toilets,breakfast there was nothing left so waiting 10 mins for more to be cooked.when I returned for my food the plates had dirty marks and food debrie on them I asked for a clean plate and that was given too me that wasn't much better,the bread was frozen still in the bag and too sum it all up if there was a fire in there you wouldn't get out as there are chairs chuffed in the bars on the fire doors.A disgrace and shouldn't be open

“Cheap and cheerful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Ok for a quick bite to eat with family and friends. Cheep and cheerful, nothing too fancy. Can get busy on Sundays. Cheap deals in week for pensioners. God little local.

“Never Again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

First off this pub could do with refurbishment as its showing its age
It's a large place with restaurant at the far end
My wife and I had the Carvery today and quite frankly it was awfull The veg was cold and the meats tired and dry The turkey had a very strange taste and one that the waitress could not explain
It's a family type pub so expect a few kids around
We don't really understand other reviewers positive comments and all I can commend them for is the low price
However regardless of price the meal should taste better than the one we had
We will not be going there again

“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

Had the carvery , not sure how they do it so cheap .Good selection of meat , vegetables ok, nice roast potatoes, service is fast. We tend to use it, when we can't be bothered to cook. They've recently spruced the place up a bit, but I don't think it went far enough . Good atmosphere and friendly staff.
