The lager is decent and cheap. More bar staff would be welcome. No problem returning for a Saturday afternoon pint(s). Nice outside area on a sunny afternoon.

Visited this pub for a meal on a warm Sunday early evening. They didn't appear to have a roast but there was an extensive menu available. Was very quiet, so service was quick. Nice big meals, very tasty and reasonably priced. The menu also includes the calories contained in each meal, which is handy for those watching their weight.

Went into the Elms for a quick pint - what a joke! Service is sloooow to the point of non existant. Try getting food and its like a marathon. Unless you have 10 minutes or more to wait for a beer avoid!

No wonder this pub is always busy. You might have to wait a bit for your food - but worth the wait. Where else can you go for large glass of wine and a good meal for less than a tenner. I just wish people would stop telling their friends as hard to get table sometimes!

This pub is a perfect place to meet up with friends and have a cheap bite to eat and a pint! Plenty of seating inside and outside, so it is suited for different needs and the food is of a decent standard, especially for a pub!

Had nice steak meal at lunchtime which was a lunchtime special. Cheap price too. Was a hot day and had outside seating and large car park. Service was a bit confused as staff didn't seem to know who was next to be served and no queue

Very average disappointing meal. I had a large mixed grill, all but the sausages were extremely chewy and in some cases inedible. My girlfriend's Tennessee burger was over grilled to put it politely and bland, presentation was poor too. My coffee was served in a badly chipped mug. The smell of cigarette smoke from the nearby patio was an another... More

Waited 15 minutes at the bar for a drink and had to point out to the bar maid that the lady next to me had been waiting far longer than me however she appeared to serve newly arrived friends in front of the both of us. Her arrogance and rudeness was not appreciated. The young lady next to me was... More
