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

Watched in disbelief this weekend as parents socialized and used the pub as a kids playground, somebody mentioned a football tournament. We watched as they kids irritated the hell out of diners or general drinkers whilst their parents turned a blind eye. The kids we're running through the pub, crashing in and out of the fire doors, customers resorting to... More

Yet not ID someone for an alcoholic drink is poor!! To then ask someone to leave at 9 because they don't have ID for a soft drink is ridiculous!! When them... More

Have visited a couple of lunchtimes for a snack and drink but each time the staff were drawn to my attention. No smile or welcome and the food and drinks are almost thrown at you and not cleared after use. Both times we have had to clear our own tables and take our plates back to the bar rather than...

Shocking service and food. How can you not have burgers on the menu on a Saturday night, tip for staff, don't carry plates so your thumb is in the food.

Where do I start....4 of us ordered food at lunchtime. It wasn't that busy. 45 minutes later food arrived. Salad had no dressing. When asked they said they hadn't got any nor anything else to offer. The place is next door to Tesco!!! So I sent it back. Order a tomato soup with a baguette...what could go wrong? It too... More
