Tried the Pub again and whilst the staff on the front line were very good the food is still rather poor in particular the 'Baby Potatoes' seemed more like OAPs. The menu is comprehensive its just the ingredients are mediocre. Come GK you can do better than this..

Not a bad family option food is ok and reasonably priced. This is a value family eating pub that doesn't pretend to be anything else. Come here for a cheap family meal, but not necessarily special occasion.

Took my family to Sunday Lunch at the Spread Eagle. My wife and I ordered the full Sunday roast. The meal was a total joke. The potatoes and the Yorkshire pudding were Aunt Bessie's deep frozen type of product, with no taste and of poor quality. The meat was also frozen packet type food and the gravy was thin and...

Four of us went for a birthday meal. The service was very good, the waitresses and bar staff were really friendly. The food was lovely, and nothing was too much trouble for them, they happily gave us extra gravy when we asked and the chef made sure one of the meals had 'well done' beef. Thank you to all the...
