We visited as a treat at the end of the summer holidays and we were not disappointed. On the lunchtime that we went we booked for six people and they told us that there would be a party of twenty six in at the same time. That made no difference. The staff as always were superb, the food fantastic with... More

Popped in here in a rush to grab a bite one evening and were pleasantly surprised. Staff and speed of service excellent and food was lovely too. Relatively cheap to eat there too. Would recommend.

A spacious pub/restaurant in a pleasant location, heavily booked up for a sunday evening. Very decent pub fare, reasonably priced. The evening we were there, we found out that they were short staffed. It became apparent that the staff who were there were eager to please, but were untrained, inexperienced, poorly managed, or possibly all three. This was most painfully... More

Went for dinner at 1930 on Sunday having booked a table. We were given the lunch menu to choose from, not the dinner menu. We ordered the bread and olive sharing platter which was ok nothing special.Our main courses that we ordered when they arrived did not resemble what was written on the actual menu, the so called "proper" chips...

Went twice over the August bank holiday weekend, meals were very tasty and portions generous. Recommend the seafood sharing platter but don't order a main as well. Selection of real ales and happy to accommodate dogs. good idea to book for inside.

Went for Monday lunch have not been before. I had the fish finger sandwich which sounded great on the menu. Bread a bit soggy like it had been frozen, with limp salad, but the fish finger looked great but honestly were tasteless. The extra serving of chips were quite frankly not proper chips as described, overcooked and hard. My husband... More

We went with family for a birthday meal. There is a very good menu. I had Lamb Shank which was absolutely delicious. My husband had sea bass and others had the fish and chips. My goodness the fish and chips!!!! The fish was that big it was coming off the edge of the plate and the flesh was beautifully white.... More
