The breakfast was warm and although it is great value customers like a hot breakfast. The toast and jam was warm. The cups for the filter coffee were dirty. The staff were friendly enough but its the food that counts

We popped in after watching a film at the local cinema. It was very busy, but we were served quickly and the staff were friendly and polite. They have a great selection of real ales.

Popped in here several times during my recent visit and found it to be friendly and welcoming as always. All staff encountered served me with a smile. Everywhere was clean and tidy. Beer was well kept with some good local brews. Food was excellent as always.
