It was for my wife's birthday and the 3 of us wanted to go for a meal to celebrate. When we phoned to book a table the person we talked to was polite and helpful. When we arrived we were shown to our table. The waitresses were friendly and helpful. The menu was made up of a good choice of... More

I was part of a large local group, we all eat and had drinks. We probably spent £400 to £500 during the evening with drinks and food. I bought a round of drinks at 9.55 with no mention of what was to happen next. At 10 o'clock a very rude waitress told us that they were closing. She returned about... More

What pub serves a round of drinks at 9:55 then tells you they shut at 10:00 and hassle you to leave? - This one! There are many far more hospitable establishments in the area that we will be using from now on.

I went with 6 other ladies, the food was excellent, couldn't fault the service either, food was hot, plentiful and delicious. Would recommend this pub for an evening meal.

Went for Sunday dinner with my wife, was the sh1t! I then recommended it to my friends and took them the week after.... my chef must have been off work as the quality dropped from amazing to average. Word of wisdom, the peanut butter brownie is more like a cheese cake than a brownie! Would still recommend this place, the... More

If you want a large hunk of beef (in the form of a Sirloin rather than a hipster) with big side of fries and peas, then this place represents great value, good food and when the open fire is on, a cosy bar to enjoy your meal fireside. It is a quirky layout and can accommodate big groups in the... More

Went for lunch, the food is delicious BUT make sure you haven't had any breakfast and you certainly won't want any dinner if you go for lunch as the portion sizes are HUGE but like I said delicious. I had the scampi which was juicy, chips are homemade, hubby had gammon which was off the evening menu and came on... More
