This is the kind of place to go if you just want some cheap pub grub. Nice big portions, good service and not too expensive. Can't fault it for what it is. The foods nice and it's worth a visit if you just don't feel like cooking for yourself and if you're really hungry you can order massive versions of... More

Always quite busy. Clean and tidy. Have never had to wait to long to be served food. Portions are good . On our last visit (2 days ago) they made a mistake with my order and happily whisked it away and replaced it for me. Great for a pub lunch...relaxed atmosphere.

Sticky dirty tables, extremely slow service. My friend ordered a san miegal It did not even taste like the beer it's obvious they haven't cleaned the lines of the beer here for a long time which is absolutely disgusting. Ordered food, didn't expect much due to the price but even then it's poor quality, soggy fries and very cheap meat... More

Four of us went for a roast dinner on Sunday but wish we had not bothered. After waiting for 40 minutes, the meals arrived and the portion barely covered the centre 4 inches of the plate.Tasteless veg including a large cauliflour STALK with a non descript splattering of a sauce , a yorkshire pudding that had been microwaved to death...

Checked the web site before going last Friday. Got there about 10.20am ( should be open on Fridays at 10am) Had left home to travel to Wiltshire. Thought that we would get a nice breakfast to keep us going on the journey close to the M1. Not even open! Just heard someone shout at us rather brusquely " we aren't... More

We have been coming here for years now but to tonight was the worst meal we have ever had here. My medium steak was well overdone, the mushy peas on my husband's meal were just a mess. I mentioned this and was offered free desserts which we did not want, but did accept coffees which we did not really want.... More

Visited with wife and 2 80 plus year olds. Too busy really as tightly packed in. That said service was quick albeit short and sharp. Menu was extensive enough and cheap and 2 for 1 offers. We found the food to be ok, plenty on plate, too much for us! Nice atmosphere. Car. Park gets full.

I came for Sunday lunch yesterday and chose the nachos sharing starter, it was nice, had everything you would expect plus chilli beef. The others in my group had the prawn cocktail, it looked really nice and they assured me it was. Next I ordered the roast beef lunch, I wouldn't order again, the meat was tough and 2 of... More
