Scruffy little place, more down than up. Very average pub food. Noisy, old fashioned and dark, definitely last century.

I have been to this restaurant many times in the past few years and the food is always very good. I do find that the meals are smaller but still the same price. I would return here again though

I have however been a patron on several occasions because it's a fun local pub. Their drinks are good and decently priced, they have a good atmosphere and good service. Their location is... More

Ups has a wonderful gluten free menu with a dedicated fryer so the gluten intolerant can enjoy fish and chips, chicken fingers and fries, and potato skins without a worry (except for the waistline).

Went here for dinner with people from work as a celebratory meal. Extensive menu with lots of gluten free options. Got a chicken citrus salad which was ok. The Cajun chicken was good.
