Took a chance on this place based on recent reviews. Overall relatively pleasing. Despite not having buns for burgers, no nuggets from child's menu and always wanting to cover chips in their special seasoning - without telling us beforehand or asking us - we did enjoy our meal. They accommodated our request for plainer food. The barman was patient and... More

Lovely 2 guys behind the bar, ever so friendly and made our visit a memorable one. Tasty (buy 1 get one free happy hour) cocktails, well worth a visit.

Walked in for a late lunch and enjoyed a delicious share plate. Best of all a Norwegian choir came in and while enjoying a pint or two sang a lively wedding march. The kind of quirky thing I love about visiting England.

This has to be one of the worst meals I've ever had. It was the night before our wedding and we were meeting friends as it was my husband to be's birthday. The food was absolutely appalling, I can't believe so much can go wrong with steak and chips, both overcooked. The manager did give us a discount but it... More

Visited The Snug the evening before a friends wedding for a relaxed gathering. We were informed that there was a new menu this week that was very exciting. We ordered 5 X flat steaks and 1 burger. The waitress then advised us that they only had 3 steaks left. When the food arrived the 3 times cooked chips with the... More

Staff were lovely, but our egg on toast took forever to arrive! We were told it was a new chef & he had a melt down. Wouldn't have minded if they'd offered us a pot of tea whilst we were waiting but they didn't. Eggs on toast when they finally arrived was a bit blah, the chef obviously didn't know... More

Average cocktails but nice, low-key space. Staff friendliness is hit-and-miss but hey. Haven't tried their food. Worth it if you're nearby but wouldn't go out of my way to come here.

My partner and I shared a platter, everything on it was full of flavour and good value. It was aimed at being a entree sharing platter for 4 but we had it as our main and was more than enough for us both. The cocktails weren't fantastic but as they were 2 for the price of 1 we couldn't really... More

We popped in after dinner for a couple of cocktails. There is a great selection and the ones that we picked were superb. The staff and manager were super friendly. We will definitely be going back.

Title of this review says it all. Food was tasty and reasonably priced. Cocktails were delicious and 2 for 1 (even on a Saturday which is practically unheard of in most places!!!!). Service was friendly and efficient even though they were super busy running food to tables and making drinks (cocktails are really time consuming). Will definitely be back.
