This was a last minute visit on a Sunday it was fairly quiet. We had a combination of pub food and roasts and they were a good pub standard with fair service. Nothing wow but nothing awful but wouldn't be my first choice.

Very busy but expected as it’s prime summer. Couldn’t find a spot outside as we we being smothered in smoke. Once inside music so loud you need to shout. Some roudy early 29’s came in glass dropping. Glasses don’t get taken often.

This place is such value for money! Where could anyone get a delicious lunch or dinner for the price. There is always a good choice of meat and vegetables and the Yorkshire Puddings are enormous! Service came with a smile and a large jug of...More

Visited with a mate just for a quiet drink and chill... Service was very good, very friendly, helpful but not cloying. Good atmosphere and busy enough to show it had a good reputation locally. Decent choice of Bitters and they are kept well, good beer...More
