The menu is really varied and the food was delicious. I had a burger and it was obviously homemade and really good. The chips are also great.... More

This was the second time we had eaten at The Archer, but it will be some time before we try it again. The service was very slow, it took 45 mins before we received our meal, and as before the fish was off as was the soup. Why was the soup off? It was still midday and not busy. And... More

We started a tab when we ordered our drinks at the bar. The menus were presented with information about certain items not being available which... More

As a walking group we have a pub meal most Wednesdays and after a couple of changes of ownership we ate at the Archer earlier in the year. We were disappointed both in the menu content and the fact that we were greeted with a list of items that were not available. However we decided to give it a second... More

We visited our local pub for Sunday lunch, we were not expecting anything great as we've been to places locally for lunch and have always been disappointed. We ordered our roast beef and pork dinners, food was served promptly with plenty of veg on the side. It was the best roast dinner out in a long time, it more than... More
