“Fantastic Food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

My partner and I eat in this restaurant most Friday evenings. We have NEVER had a bad meal. All the food is exceptional both Eastern and Western. The restaurant is clean and the service good. The Chef, Chang is talented and charming. The Pub is frequented by many local characters, who are friendly and interesting to talk to. Try it, if you like good food you'll love it.

“delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

First thoughts were if i am honest what a tatty exterior. So glad i ventured inside. Olde world pub but warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere. 2 steaks plus burger ordered. Absolutely great food. Asked for well done slightly underdone but delicious all the same.my 12 year old waxed lyrical about the burger and we left deliriously satiated. Cannot wait to try the sunday roast.

“Such a disappointing setting....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

We didn't eat, in fact we didn't even look at the menu. The pub setting is so grubby with half a dozen characters hanging around the bar, TV blaring with a football match that only the bar person appeared to be watching.
We had booked ahead, but all the tables we all grubby with soiled table cloths. It was not very warm and the bar staff seemed surprised to see us.
Having read such positive comments about this place it was a real disappointment. We left and ate elsewhere.
We must try the take away service before we can comment on the food.

“Never again, except for a takeaway”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Our low score is reflective of the atmosphere and ambience, not the food, which was very good. How unfortunate for the cook that the place where her food is served is so dreadful, with some ''colourful characters' who intrude on the delicate nature of the Asian food. We have since had a takeaway from here which was definitely the best takeaway we have had locally, but we won't sit in there to eat again, once was definitely enough!
