Having avoided this venue for the last couple of years because it was so dingy and dark and if you consider who owns it they should have known better, I was extremely please to see the refurbishment. Now I can enjoy my favourite beer in a modern, clean and bright environment. We'll done, finally!!!

We have used this pub for some years and were dismayed when the quality of the food went down. We hoped the refurbishment and new menus would improve everything but alas no. We ate there twice in January once during the week when we had very ordinary fish and chips and once on a Sunday, I had roast sirloin and... More

Popped in for a quick drink, oh dear where has everyone gone? All the locals have gon new decor etc, but to take away all the locals bar stools etc they have lost that great old fashion pub feel, it's now like any other Gastro pub, it may have been dated but it was always warm and friendly. Not anymore... More

Went there for lunch with a group of friends. I chose smoked haddock with bubble and squeak and poached egg. It cost £9 (all the options were expensive). A very tiny portion of dry potato mashed with some uncooked kale arrived with a poached egg balanced on top. Beside it was a 2 inch square piece of smoked haddock that... More

Having been here a few years ago and not been back since as it was terrible (couple of years is fair time to wait for me) we gave this place another go/chance. Inside is very nicely decorated and the lunch menu we had was very nice and just enough for midday. Beer was of good standard and well kept. Staff... More

We all had plaice this time which on the menu was advertised as "whole plaice". When it arrived it was half a filleted plaice on a bed of salad with cold... More

Passed here many times and thought must try. Not disappointed. Called in for lunch. Our 2 young servers were very good and the food was amazing. A treat both to the eye and the taste buds. Would fully recommend anyone to go here. We will definitely return in the near future.
