Possibly the worst place I've eaten. Had a chicken burger, it was very plain and it fell apart very easily. The chips were okay though. Also very bad for atmosphere. Very loud drunk people everywhere. Could not hear a thing my family said. The manager should take responsibility and tell people to quiet down. Had to wait 40 minutes for... More

Have eaten there several times and it never disappoints. The soup is always home made as is the steak pie. All in all very satisfying on a cold day. Had a cafe latte and staff were more than happy to serve this, absolutely no problems. Many pubs you go into sometimes look at you if you had horns when you... More

Enjoyed lunch with four friends, good choice of main dishes, freshly prepared and generous portions, best to book ahead rather than be disappointed.

A family meal tonight. A huge choice of yummy food. Excellent sized portions, some would say huge but my husband and teenage son were delighted to help out when my sister-in-law couldn't finish her fish. Great to have the choice of half rice and half chips with the chilli and stroganof. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Great value... More
