“Needs a good sort out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

Arrived absolutely starving and was very excited as i had heard good reviews about this place.
But we got our drinks went and sat down, then the really polite waiter came over with menus which looked dirty and worn and old, so that immediantely put me off as they were litrally hanging! Such simple thing to sort, then we decided what we were having, after looking threw the lengthy list of what to have to eat, menu is huge!! Food was okay, but nothing exciting, the toilets oh dear looks like i walked into the 1970's, no sign on door just a bit of card next to it very worn and old, and dirty a bit of the floor was missing, to be honest i wouldnt go back here again. Because it seems there is no thought put into the little things, like the menu for instant i worry what little thought is going into the ingredients of my food. Its such a shame because its local and we eat out alot. Maybe im just fussy.

“Good food. We'll certainly dine here again.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

I've had several Sunday lunches here which have been fine so called in this evening for a meal as we were in the area.
The service was prompt and friendly and our meals good. I had the minted lamb and my wife the ribs. Portions were generous especially the ribs.
On the downside the dining room decor could do with updating.

sunday roast we had was unedible, didn't get asked what was wrong when taking plates, was a while ago so may have changed hands since - never went back

“Excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

Cannot fault the food here - especially their Specials Menu. They certainly don't skimp on their 2-4-1 meals on weekday early evenings, and I've recently sampled their lunchtime special - 2 meals for £12 - which was also excellent. I must however, have a gripe about the toilets; they are in poor state of repair and let the place down. But don't let this put you off eating in this establishment, it is still good value for money with excellent, tasty food. Highly recommended.
