Not the best pub in this chain, it felt a bit run down, bar service was pretty ordinary and we decided not to eat there in the end.

Went here for lunch today. Excellent service, lovely food served well. We had the chicken tandoori wraps which came with either salad or chips. Followed by an ice cream sundae and the salted caramel cheesecake. Staff came back to check everything was OK. As always fantastic value for money. The atmosphere in the pub was friendly and welcoming. Would have... More

Hi Jayney2411, We actually have changed the rules awhile ago, and children can sit wherever you want to sit, and they do not need to be eating at the pub, as long as it's before 9pm. We aim to be extremely child friendly, with an open garden, children's activities, and a selection of food and drink specifically for children. If... More

Large two tier pub, so plenty of room with tvs upstairs along with toilets. Just popped in for a quick drink and a snack. Found it to be lacking atmosphere but that was more than likely due to it being a wednesday afternoon.
