“Lovely food, brilliant for a cheap meal out!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

The cheiftain is my local and am often in their for a drink at the weekend. Drinks can be a little expensive but the food is yummy! They have a BOGOFF menu so two people can eat a main meal for a fiver each! Portions are not too bad either!

“Typical pub grub, certainly nothing to shout about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Have now eaten here on 2 occasions as it is within 10 minutes of our home. Offers typical pub food of a reasonable standard and the meals we had were acceptable. Hubby had a real issue with the 'mash' that accompanied his meal last time we visited which was definitely, we both concurred of the reconstituted variety. However, our grown up kids seem to appreciate the 2 for 1 offer and visit regularly with friends. For us cost is not the prime consideration and we would rather pay a little more for something with more taste that is not 'ping' food.

“Our local”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Myself and my 9 year old are regulars here as its just down the road from us and its good value for money. We generally go on a Saturday evening. My daughter loves the ham,egg and chips where as I love the scampi, burger and hunters chicken. The puddings are very yummy as well. The staff are friendly and polite. My only moan is that my daughter loves a burger but they only come with seeded rolls which she can't eat.
