“Not Bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Dinner was served quickly, beer was good, food was okay, my mom really enjoyed her steak pie but my dad and I were apathetic about our chicken and fish dishes.

*Random Fact* They allow dogs in the bar, and there was an adorable well behaved one sitting under the table next to us who loved getting pats!

“warm and cosy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Went there for drinks our first night but missed out on meals as they had finished serving. Went back the next night and decided to eat in the restaurant. Service by staff different, felt they didnt really want to be there, or that we shouldn't be there! Apart from that the food was very nice and we made our own atmosphere, and it was a warm place to seat and eat with the family and talk of our travels and was within walking distance to our digs. Nothing much else open so only other choice for meal being the pub! Would go there again.

“Sullen Waitress”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

What could have been a good meal was made average by the waitress. I'm not sure she was really miserable or it was just her way, but she didn't come across well. The food was ok but not special. There was a really annoying electric boing noise which indicated food was ready in the kitchen. Must be dreadful when they are busy. Be aware that there is a 20p service charge on EVERY drink from the bar served in the restaurant. We didn't pay it though.
