Main meal was O.K., but the dessert left a lot to be desired. I asked for Strawberry meringue, which was a few strawberries in between two bought "cardboard" meringues. They could have at least served Asda's finest or Morrison's signature meringues which I buy. Very disappointed

Have eaten here several times but first visit on a Saturday night and not impressed. To start the normal offers don't apply (probably par for the course elsewhere to be fair) but it makes the meal considerably more expensive. My fav chicken with Mexican Cajun sauce dish was approx £4.00 more than normal and as the 2 course offer wasn't... More

Has just what you expect from any pub, any where, at any time. Piled high, moved out rapidly. Filled a hole. Young staff. Exceptionally busy. Almost stressful. Several 'sittings'. Carvery. Won't be returning.
