“Enjoyable Food - Shrinking Menu Choice:(”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

Stopped by to our local pub for lunch yesterday. Hadn't been there for a few months. The food was as always enjoyable and of a good standard. No lengthy wait for it. Prices not OTT either for the most part. However the menu continues to shrink, I feel. My favourite entre of escargot disappeared off their menus some some while back, but now the bar snack menu seems to have diminished - we were looking for something light - but we ended up selecting off the regular lunch menu. Yesterday there was no soup offered that I could see - used to be on the blackboard. Perhaps I should have asked? Not complaints about the food quality whatsoever, just disappointed with the diminishing food choice.

“Wonderful service, food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

Visited Co-op last week to celebrate a birthday. We were all thoroughly impressed from the great service the waitress gave us to the prompt delivery of our meals and everyone thought the food was a great standard (enough to recommend you to our family and friends). Well done!

“Food and atmosphere were great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

The food was lovely - had the fish and chips and fish was very fresh and cooked perfectly. Bit noisy when trying to chat but that wasn't really a problem as it made the night more relaxing
