Visited on a Thursday night and found it quite busy. Food was good enough, nothing special. No cask beers left as they are about to shut for a month (July 2016) and re open as a "Hungry Horse" pub restaurant. We will give it try when it opens.

Excellent food for a quick meal out instead of cooking. Been a couple of times and can't knock it the food it is well cooked just to our liking, and at the right price. We had two steaks for £10. and a garlic mushroom starter which was excellent. The décor could do with a little TLC but having said that... More

7 friends met up for a catch up here. The menu is quite a extensive and I am sure that there would be something on there to suit most palates. Food orders are placed at the bar, so if there is a large party, I would suggest that you write the order down to avoid confusion. The food arrived after... More

A brilliant evening with the family. The food was lovely, great menu we were spoilt for choice and although it was busy the service was excellent. The Neil Diamond tribute act (Gary Ryan) was excellent and the DJ Kenny Mills was a scream. Will definitely be going again and recommend to all!
