The food is generally good, their homemade chips are incredible! But occasionally you get a bad meal, which taints the image. They seem to struggle with waiting staff, either really lovely or completely robotic... no happy medium.

Food ok but a little over priced for what it is! Has plenty of potential and could be improved on with a little bit more variation in the menu

12 of us went there for lunch. Not one word of complaint from anyone. From steak to curry, fish to omelette - really well presented and excellent value.

I used to love having this place on my doorstep. A modern gastro pub in the valleys serving good food. Returned recently after not visiting for a long while and how times have changed, for the worse. Place looks run down and is in need of a major piece of cosmetic work. Gents toilets are damaged, unclean and smelly. Food... More

We go here quite a lot for lunch. The staff are very friendly and make you welcome and the food has always been good. This of course, is what I'd expect anyway from a restaurant. Nothing special about this place, but consistency is definitely worth mentioning.
