visited to the dog and duck , a warm welcome, great service, a decent new menu, food was topnotch, and we always say it's portions are a little big. Once again for the five stars. We just don't understand the bad comments on here, never had a bad experience, they just never got it wrong for us, and such a... More

Ambience, décor and friendliness as expected but very slow service - even justified by management. Our starters arrived after 25 minutes and the main course almost an hour later! No apology, no explanation as if this was the norm. Other diners walked out before the meal had mbeen served If so their business will fail. The quality and quantity of... More

We booked for 6 people, for a Senior family member's Birthday. Although the table was ready and the staff brought the menus swiftly, we waited a long time for our orders to be taken and drinks to arrive. After dinner we waited almost 30 minutes to be asked if we wanted a dessert course and by I had to wait... More

The surroundings here are good with a fun and an eclectic array of furnishings and decor. There's always a warm welcome from friendly staff. The service is good but slow and the staff are always willing to help and they are knowledgable with regard to the menu however the quality of the food varies a lot. In the past I... More

The outside looks lovely, the inside quirky, the staff are very friendly and nice but my food of steak and chips with peppercorn sauce was cold and tasteless. After waiting over half an hour for our food to come I wasn't expecting it to be so rubbish. The kitchen really need to sort themselves out as it could be a... More

I've always loved this place, for a few reasons but the main one is how elaborate and ornate the decor is. The food is also generous and a good value. If it was slightly closer I'd come here all the time!

We stopped for Sunday lunch and first impressions were of a funky looking pub. However, the food was cold. When asked if it could be warmed it was whipped away and brought back after being microwaved. The waitress kicked the door open when bringing food in. All in all - nice looking pub - food and some staff not good.

A group of us from work headed to the pub at dinner time (12pm) on a Friday in late September and I was really really disappointed with the quality of the food for the price. I had the nachos and they were terrible and a good number of the other dishes were also poor. I have had a number of... More

Waitress and manager lovely - extremely helpful and attentive. We all had steak, my friends' steaks were lovely, mine not so good but the whole meal was replaced quickly with an apology. Two puddings off the menu so choice was limited, slightly disappointed with 3 small and expensive scoops of ice cream (although delicious) and 4 very small not very... More
