4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had Sunday Roast. Meal and service could not be faulted. £5.95 and that included a drink. Midweek menu is also good value. Clean and tidy bar no pools of beer like some others we visited

We both had a steak meal and both cooked different ways and both were cooked to perfection. The waitress that delivered our food had a really good bubbly polite attitude and spoke to us when...

Service at the times I've visited has been stress-free.. Only gripe really is that tables don't get wiped down often enough (especially after customer changeovers) - a hangover from the... More

I am so sorry to hear your experience of us was not a positive one and would like to apologise if you felt the duty manager on the day did not deal with this complaint in a professional manner.
