This comfortable pub had lovely service, with mixed quality food, as one would expect from the fantastic, a little too good to be true prices. The steak and kidney pie was amazing, but the tomato soup and sticky toffee pudding with watery custard were clearly dirt cheap. Generous portions though, and a good meal, easy on the wallet after a... More

Our meals varied: the steak and kidney pie was good, the plaice was average, the veg lasagne was microwaved dry, stuck to the bottom of the dish but tasted OK. Only peas and carrots for veg but they were fine. Portions were generous. Not a... More

What struck me about the food in this pub is that somewhere there is a nursing home without its chef, or the chef is moonlighting in the Oddfellows. Very low quality, luke warm food and veg that was boiled within an inch of its life. I ordered potatoes with my steak but was pleased the order was messed up and... More

Tasty bar meal. A bonus was the pub entertainment. Friendly singing duo with fun banter that involved the customers and had great song choices. We had a toe tapping evening😀
