We came in for dinner as it is my partner's birthday today and fancied a nice meal to celebrate. What we got was a superb meal and excellent service. We highly recommend the ribeye steak and the salmon fishcakes.

Visited this pub when passing through Grimsby for a family event. Pub clean and tidy in appearance, however bathrooms were littered with loo roll and things broken, such as loo roll holder. Food: both ordered burgers on the Thursday deal. The food was tasty and served promptly. Staff: table service staff were polite, welcoming and attentive to needs. Our table... More

Service was a bit haphazrd but the food was good, and good value too. it is a great location, handy for the town centre but just far enough away not to be part of it.

The service was slow, the waitress was miserable and the portion was miniscule. When I made a comment how small it was to the waitress she almost bit my head off saying "well, do you want more?" my reply was "No thank you I just won't come here anymore". Prior to Christmas 2015 the portion sizes were better

Myself and four friends went for a meal on a Tuesday evening. There were not many diners so we expected good service. Our meals came at different times despite being ordered together. One meal was sent back as it was cold. Came back after too long in microwave and was dried up. A side dish was forgotten. Worst of all... More

The Cod meal was awful. Grey mush. Never again. The place needs a clean and the complaints procedure needs consideration as our server did not really help

Local to me. Good food n drinks from a gastro pub chain. Nothing amazing but certainly better than average for a chain. Good selection of ales and a fun quiz on Thursday evenings provided people don't use their smartphones.

Great food at very good prices.A choice of set menu or ala-carte. Lots of choice . Large Starter portions with Beer battered mushrooms a must.
