Went here with a group of friends. Haven't been for a long while to be honest as used to be quite expensive to go. Was pleasantly surprised with the prices here. It seems to have changed since I last came. You can get two meals for £11.49. Also the drinks aren't too expensive either. Will definitely come back here again.... More

The good here was absolutely outstanding! Our orders were taken pretty soon after arrival and we wasn't waiting that long for our food to come out! Really great tasting and the puddings were amazing, I would definitely recommend and come back time and time again! Friendly staff always there to help!

Waited 15 minutes until I got my first drink whilst watching people leave without ordering. Then waited twenty minutes still hadn't been served then left frustrated and annoyed. Not the staffs fault totally a management problem unfortunately a problem occurring far to often.

Came here with high expectations and was not disappointed! All 3 meals were cooked well, and in a timely fashion, considering how busy they were! I spoke to a bar maid and apparently it was "quiet" for a Friday lunch??? Wow!! Easy to see why they are so popular!! Will return soon!!

Visited at 5.30 pm on a weekday. First time I had been there but my wife has been several times. Went to the bar and had fast friendly drinks service. Some pubs seem to cram in as may tables as they can but this pub has lots of tables with lots of space between them. Having seated we looked at... More

This is another Green King establishment, however unlike the Mitre in Southampton the difference is like chalk and cheese. This is truly an outstanding pub the staff are excellent with great service and eager to please. The food is excellent and I would recommend the meal deal with two meals for £10.99 they have a fine selection of wines and... More
