Let's face it this chain does not provide fine dining or upmarket ambience. But you can be sure of a selection of real ales and a reasonable standard of hot food. The steak meals are good value and are usually well cooked and presented for price. They have a selection of wines (which include Chablis and Sauvignon blanc) at an... More

I have been going to this pub for years (on & off), it is a busy pub as the food and drink a quite cheap, the food can be good sometimes and atmosphere is generally friendly. If you are looking for a cheap meal and don't expect top quality food, then this pub will suit.

Met with son and his partner for lunch on two occasions over the last month. On each visit the choice of food was good, the meal deals were really value for money and the service was fast. Not the place for fine dining, but a good place for a quick lunch.

Went here with a few friends from work for a couple of drinks. It's your usual wetherspoons pub. No music or entertainment and terrible toilets but cheap drinks. Very busy on a Friday night.

On my visit to the elms for lunch with family was an average experience a certain member of staff named cindy was possibly the rudest person I've come across she had no interest in serving and continusly huffed and puffed and rolling her eyes at myself and previous customer! Would not visit again solely on my experience with this women!... More

Normally very busy on the weekend, but that doesn't excuse the bar staff being seemingly incapable of tracking who's been waiting at the bar. After 10 minutes, you start to feel invisible as other people turn up and get served immediately. There can be a whole row of people waiting but the staff don't seem to care, it's who they're...
