I tried this again. Shouldn't have. Same as always. Staff ignorant to customer service, more interested in their own little cliques - customers still paying too much for very average fayre. Had the burger. Which was fine. Had the side of brisket - which wasn't. Desperate, tasted dry and unhealthy. Chips, obviously frozen, and blanched a few hours ago. Tasted... More

Up on to Epsom Downs for Sunday Roast and there are amazing views from here. The Shard and other buildings in central London are clearly seen from the pub car park and it’s surprising how high Epsom Racecourse seems. Meanwhile inside the pub we both enjoyed our Roast Beef and glass of Rioja. The Roast waspossibly a little over-priced at... More

I visited the pub today and had a 2 course fixed menu for £12.50 that I ordered on the bar. The food consisted of a lovely parsnip soup and baked halloumi with mushy peas/fries which was very good. I also ordered drinks on the bar and wanted to use my voucher for a Berry Mojito cocktail that was on offer... More

Hi Helga, Firstly, thank you very much for your kind comments about the food quality! I have to agree- the halloumi is my favourite! However, I am sorry that you didn't get to enjoy our Berry mojito along with it. Unfortunately, the voucher code will not go through on the tills without a main meal being on the same tab-... More

My friends and I meet up as couples with the kids a few times a year and we were looking forward to a scrummy Sunday lunch. Sadly the food was not up to much, the roast chicken was very dry, the lamb was fatty and the pork was at least 50% fat. On the children's menu, my friend ordered the... More

Quick clean and delicious grub. Very nice place with attentive service. Lots of beer loads of choice - gets very busy on a Sunday with local families.

A friendly local pub, we were welcomed and seated straight away and our drinks order taken. The menu was comprehensive and catered for most tastes and we didn't have to wait too long for the meals to appear. Portion sizes were generous and the food was well presented. The chips could have been hotter but it didn't spoil the meal.... More

Drinks with the lads turned into dinner with a few more. The barman with glasses introduced me to the salmon and seabass duo special. It was cooked to perfection, with aoli sauce and potatoes. Great atmosphere and even better food. I will be back.
