Visited for midweek lunch, first impressions was it could easily have been the 70s as that is what the decor and carpet looked like.

Menu was fairly concise but around £2/3 dearer than similar places, we had gammon egg chips which at £12 is overpriced but was nice. Kids meals are £6 which is the dearest we paid all week but they were fairly big, however that is not required for a 3 and 6 year old.

The garden is lifeless, overgrown and littered, with old rickety benches which is entered via a games room containing a pool table and bar football, again in 70s theme.

The staff were friendly and I guess this pub would be OK to watch live football and really could be great with a revamp which would justify the heavier than usual prices.

We only visited because we were staying a Hendra which I reckon most of their trade comes from, we will not visit here again as there are far better places locally.

We went to this venue today 20/04/2014 at 3.30 PM.

We were sat down at a table and left to work out the menu by our self, we had to ask for the staff to give us a explanation on the way the system works.

Food was absolutely discusting, only a choice of 2 meats, the beef was BLUE, blood everywhere, chewy like rubber, well over priced, worth £4.50 not £8, the roast potatos was were black like charcoal and the cabbage was like WIRE.

The suede was watery and resembled something out of the movie "Oliva".

AVOID AT ALL COSTS, GO TO WETHERSPOONS BETTER FOOD BETTER QUALITY SERVICE AND COST EFFECTIVE.

we visited this pub primarily to watch our favorite sports teams as the local caravan park we were at didn't have SKY sports, what a fab decision! superb hostelry provided by the young lady from atherstone? near Bolton (i believe) and made to feel welcome by all.
because of this we ate hear several times (superb quality food) and for the food, service and hospitality i would recommend to all. only down point that stopped me giving five is as an ex smoker, to have to walk through the smoking area to get to the gents is very poor!, fix this and you have five from five

We stayed at a local caravan site, but because they didn't have Sky Sports on the site, my husband watched a match here. He said the drink he had was good value and he was able to watch the game with no interruptions!
