Passing through the area we made the mistake of visiting this establishment. The smashed window in the rear door set the standard, very loud rock music was being enjoyed by an equally loud crowd in the main bar area. Decor was at best shabby, picture lights on the wall but no pictures seats and tables best suited to a greasy spoon, room cold and without any character. Menu poor and very limited, I chose garlic mushrooms as a starter, four battered button mushrooms on some withered browning lettuce with two wrinkled cherry tomatoes and a minuscule pot of mayonnaise for £4.00? The mains had a two for £10 deal from which I picked lasagna(not for the deal but due to lack of anything else I fancied). The lasagna (when it eventually arrived)came in a small oval dish, the food was 1/2" thick at one end and the thickness of a sheet of pasta at the other with hardly any sauce. The accompanying chips were hard in the middle with an aftertaste of burnt fat. Even for £5 the food was a disappointment. A total of three puddings were on offer but we cut our losses and left. The new owner said she had just taken the place on and was looking for a chef-I hope she finds one soon!
