We visited on a Tuesday evening on spec. We were pleasantly surprised at the decor and ambience on this 'Pub'. Big welcome and seated in a lovely room. Menu choice is very good. The food was well prepared and presented. Service was excellent, friendly and efficient. Would recommend.

Went here with my partner for Sunday lunch, the food was hot and tasty and the service was friendly. Many was extensive, you may be safer booking a table as we went on spec and were lucky to get one.

Used to love it here but it's gone downhill quickly. We booked for 12 and were told on arrival 'we've only got sweet potato chips, sold out of proper chips'. It took ages for food to be served. Meat was very overcooked and everything was warm rather than hot. Disappointed with our visit and very disappointed with the food. This... More

My husband and I visited on star night on Saturday. We thought they seemed a little short staffed and although we where seated quickly it was about 25 min before our order was taken. The waitress did apologise saying they had a big party upstairs. I ordered the half chicken and she said it was not available I then said... More

Held a family party in the function room on Saturday. The buffet was absolutely beautiful and all of the staff were polite, friendly and helpful especially Megan who went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. We then moved downstairs for the Tom Jones/Neil Diamond tribute and everyone has been in touch saying what a wonderful day/night they... More

Visited recently and got such a shock. The pub has gone downhill really quickly. The owners are selling and have lost all care and attention for it. The animals at the back have been left uncared for and the toilets are messy. Food is still good but where this used to be such a well kept pub, it's not nice... More

A group of 38 people from three local Rotary Clubs arrived at the pub at 8 30 pm for a post bowls match supper. This consisted of platters of freshly prepared sandwiches and hot fries.At a cost of only £6/head this represented amazingly good value for money particularly when the management provided an extra large platter of fries at no...

After an inter club bowls match in Victoria Park Widnes, we arrived at the pub circa 8pm for our buffet which cost £6 per head. About 40 of us in total. We were served with the worst sandwiches ever. Cheap bread and cheap fillings. Couple of platters of frozen chips. No salad or garnishes. Wasn't enough to go round. No... More
