“Not the best pub for service or food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

We reserved a table for nine for our bi-annual get together and unfortunately i was the last one to arrive resulting in our meal order being taken as soon as i arrived.
None of us fancied a starter and after ordering our main course nobody came back to me to see what i wanted to drink. Fortunately my friends had already ordered their drinks and as i was driving had a glass of water from one of the two jugs of water ordered by my friends. Not wishing to spoil our get together and enjoying our conversation i didn't make a fuss.
When my king size prawns with salad and chips arrived it was most disappointing. The prawns were totally tasteless and the shrapnel like chips were so dry and frazzled that it wouldn't surprise me if the hadn't been cooked more then twice. The accompanying salad was ok, but how could you mess up a salad ?
At no time did anyone ask if our food was alright.
I would never return here again.

“FABULOUS FISH”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We had an enjoyable meal here plenty of fresh fish dishes on the menu plus other meat/vegetarin choices. With lots of specials on the blackboard to enlarge the normal menu.
The staff were friendly, the service was good and there was a good selection of ales available.
There were no starters on the menu but you can ask for certain appropriate items to be served as a sharer started if you wish as we did. There main meals are very big portions so maybe it's best to have a main and pudding only anyway. The desserts were varied and what we all had (4 different desserts) were all splendid. Cost is reasonable and I will definately be returning again.

“Fantastic for fish.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Large variety of fresh fish cooked how you like it ie Fried in batter or grilled (perfect when you are trying to loose a few pounds like me). Choice of chips,new, sautee or jacket potato and choice of veg or salad. What more could you ask for.

Also if you are not a fish lover there is plenty to choose from.

We will definitely become regulars.
