I live locally and this used to be my favourite place to go for a drink and some really tasty food and it would have always been at the top of my list of places to go. However my last 3 visits have been poor. The food has lost its quality and the service has also gone downhill. We had... More

We were staying close by and were advised by a guest there to use the Brampton Halt. It was really good. The waiting staff were really great always smiling and nothing was a problem. The place has been a railway station and that is the theme. Our table was in a small compartment which was made out like an old... More

One of several McManus Pubs in the area and they do not let you down. The staff are well trained and courteous and the food is of a good pub standard, well cooked, well presented and at a reasonable price. They have a large patio with outdoor BBQ in the summer months and food can be ordered from the menu... More

Ate here as part of a works course the food and service were exceptional. Can highly recommend the steak it was fantastic, too much to enjoy a dessert due to being too full. A wonderful evening.

As pubs without gastro pretensions go, this one is pretty good. Nice decor and lots of outside tables for the warmer weather. Sausages and the scampi wouldn't have taxed the kitchen but it was perfectly good.

Live locally so go regularly. Great place for a drink on a sunny day when you can sit outside. Otherwise if you need to eat the food and service are chain pub standard. Interior is getting tired and service hit and miss.

It's mid week, I've got a date. She likes good food and I don't want a rowdy pub and darts/pool going on. It's in the country! I know the place is good but I've not been here on a date before. I know the food is good and so is the beer. It's famed for it. So I'm looking at... More

Visited at around 8pm on Friday evening and we had booked a table. We where greeted immediately by a very friendly member of the team who took us straight to the table. Unfortunately we where sat in the middle of three tables very close together which didn't offer itself to a relaxed private meal which was a little disappointing and... More
