“A definite improvement, nice food, friendly service.”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

We live local to this pub and have been disappointed in the past. Decided to try again this evening as they are doing meals for £2.99 at the moment. Anyway I just wanted to say that the whole dining experience was much better that previously: the food was hot, tasty, well presented and the staff were very friendly and attentive. I hope this wasnt just a lucky night for us and will be back soon to find out!

“Worth a visit....”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

I'll immediately start by explaining the 4 stars; The food here is not the best you will eat and the staff are not the most efficient you will find but simply for the value that this pub offers it gets 4 stars.

The pub has recently had a paint job and is quite open and inviting. When you walk in, to the right is mainly people drinking and over to the left is more for dining. TIP: Walk around the left hand end of the bar and there is a quieter seating area towards the back.

Food is well priced at around £7 for a main course and they tend to be good plateful of food for this. Drinks are also well priced and a little cheaper than most places in town. On the whole the quality is fairly good to, the steak isn’t always great but the burgers, chicken (various types) and ribs have always been good. This is not fine dining but you get what you pay for and there’s nothing to complain about when you consider the price.

The staff are friendly and helpful, but to coin an expression are overworked and underpaid. Nonetheless they try very hard and do aim to please.

There's also deals most weekday evenings (see the website for info) including kids eat for a pound. Definitely worth a visit.
