Used to be Ok this place, unfortunately no more. Food you want is either unavailable or what you get is poor quality. If you want a drink and aren't a regular prepare for a long wait at the bar, you will get one when the staff can be bothered to acknowledge you, More like a crèche with a drinks licence... More

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.
