“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Very average pub food but above average pub prices. Although I enjoyed my sirloin steak - it was cooked medium as I had asked (the waiter didn't ask me how I wanted it cooked) and had a good flavour, the accompanying mushrooms were well overcooked and hard and the frozen chips were tasteless. My daughter's pasta dish with chicken, garlic and cream was very tasty, but my husband's chicken with bacon and barbecue sauce was quite inferior to (and more expensive than) its equivalent in the 'Sizzling' chain of pub restaurants. Very plain presentation on almost cold plates. Pity as the pub itself is comfortable, nice atmosphere and decor. Needs a radical re-think if it wants to retain customers at its current prices. At over £40 for just three main courses, 2 glasses of wine and one beer, this was not good value for money.

“Frozen food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

A lovely looking pub and plenty of seating area, however I ordered a drink and had to ask twice for a clean glass. As for the food, the menu seemed very plentiful but when the food arrived it was clearly frozen and pre cooked. Very expensive for what it actually was. Staff were not the friendliest either. Will not return.
