We have eaten here over the years on numerous occasions, and the service and quality were quite good, but unfortunately things have taken a turn for the worse, sticky tables, small portions, items left off the plate, and no organisation to deliver the food all together to the table when dining as a group. We visited on a Saturday night,... More

Waited ages for table service so decided to go to bar and order ourselves. The waitress then came over to inform us 2 out of 10 of our meal choices were not available. Food took ages to arrive and when it did not all at the same time. Food quality was poor. In the past we have visited the crown... More

Cheap burger buns, greasy chips and flat coke sums it up! If your meal comes to £10.60, don't give them £20.60 and expect £10 change! It totally confuses them! They ask you if your meal is ok and when you say not as good as I expected they say sorry and walk off

Our meal was very nice and hot. Considering the place was not full we waited rather a long time for our meals to arrive. The tables were very sticky to touch and also the menus. The staff were very pleasant. The surroundings were comfortable but not the best I have been to.

Visited at lunchtime on a Thursday. Two meals for the price of one all day . Food was very good and staff were very attentive and friendly. If I ever pass this way again I would defiantly return. Recommended

I visited here with my partner and her family on a Saturday evening, we had a table booked for 8pm and it was very busy when we arrived. We were told that there was an hours wait on food which we didn't mind and I guess you expect on a Saturday evening. This gave us plenty of time to have... More

2for1 daily menu. Could be more choice but reasonable amount of choice. Classier pub grub. More so visit on a Sunday for a Sunday roast. Cannot fault. Beautiful food waitresses also top notch. Would reccomend. Haven't visited much lately due to road works at the entrance making it hard to access from broth wills route.

Thank DanniielleF
