“Freezing cold”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

I have been into the pub twice in the last week and both times it has been freezing. When I went on Sunday 5th Jan the man behind the bar, said that the heating was broken but head office knew about it and was someone was coming out too fix it. So we all drank hot drinks too warm up and we all had coats on. Along with the rest of the pub.
Went in on Saturday 11th Jan for a couple of drinks with friends and once again it was freezing cold to the point that we left and went home as we were so cold. Asked again why it was so cold and was told that head office were sending someone out to fix the heating!!!!
I don't think it's good enough. I wonder when this will be sorted????

“Shocking.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Simply shocking food that was cold uncooked all the way through. There was clear drug use in the toilets and although late eating there was a sewerage smell from one end of the pub.

“Standard decent food pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

We pop in every few months for lunch. Simple menu, fast, cheap pub food. Good range of soft drinks. Good childrens meals. Evening gets a bit busier, and be prepared to wait a bit longer for Sunday lunch, but overall it's inexpensive and good value.
