So, I have visited this pub before but recently I have been diagnosed as being gluten intolerant, so it becomes very difficult for me to find a place that can either offer gluten-free foods or have enough knowledge to know what goes in their products. Therefore, this review will be based on me as a gluten intolerant person and my... More

Very tasty food, varied menu, from curry to beetroot and orange burger (very nice), busy place but short waiting times for service, staff very friendly, been back twice and will defiantly be going back to work through the menu ! Large car park, outside terrace. Really good prices too with week day meal offers. - FAB.

Spontaneous lunch here. Amazing BBQ Ranch Burger, so juicy and best sweet potato chips ever. Really clean pub and attentive staff. All meals a good price. Bonus watching Wimbledon on our own tv at the table. We will definitely be coming back

Decent food, very good service, gets quite busy. Staff very attentive and work well together, whole place seems to be extremely organised and efficient. Only downside was my date Lorna who got drunk very quickly so I needed to get her home before she got too abusive.

Best pub food we've ever had, chargrilled medium rare steak cooked perfectly, all food served on hot plates. Fabulous ice cream sundaes. Staff friendly, informative and meals served quickly. Very reasonably priced. Great atmosphere, Have already booked a return visit.
