Area management totally not in touch with requirements of locals, regular disputes, not family friendly from 9.30. Cheap bands booked not in local interest. New management appointed with no experience, local issues will only get worse. On way downhill.

I used to enjoy coming to this establishment, but since New Year they seem to be letting kids run freely around. I have got a family but I would not allow young children to be in a pub running around at ten at night. I saw kids playing in the toilets, a 8-10 year old boy glass collecting, yes GLASS... More

Great pub, eaten here quite a few times and the food is always fantastic. All of the staff are friendly and very happy to help you. I always recommend this place to friends when they are looking for somewhere diffferent to go.

Went for a meal on Thursday with my hubby and if you order anything from the grill you get a free drink. It's good food and the pub is well laid out. Everyday there is something special on the menu. Well worth visiting and will be going again very soon.

A decent enough pub that attracts locals to enjoy a drink and snacks. Mostly positive experience but lacks a cask beer offering and children tend to be allowed to cause disruption to the enjoyment of other pub users. TV sport is available but can be intrusive as the volume is unnecessarily loud. In summary worth a visit but could do... More

We were regulars here, merely because it is close to home. Myself and my large family spend a fortune here and used to go almost every night of the week for drinks and occasionally food. Staff are always miserable and clearly do not want to be there. We now only come here if there is no other option as the... More
