I think my last experience of this pub was well over twenty years ago when it was your standard drinking pub that had seen better days. The attraction for us was the dingy room out the back with two or three pool tables, but this is now a formal dining area. That's progress for you.
We did not feel it was much of a warm welcome from the first person that we encountered when we arrived, but there was nothing really wrong with it either. He was just business like.
The menu has a lot of meat on it, so at first glance you might want to reconsider if you are looking for lots of vegetarian options. Having said that there was a vege special and vege dish on the menu, together with at least one or two vege pizzas, so actually ok for veges then.
I ordered the fish and chips which was freshly fried with chunky chips and mushy peas. Very good. My wife had a pizza which had a very thin base, but this was compensated for by the large amount of chunky toppings - the largest I have seen on a pizza.
Unfortunatley the stove right next to our table was not lit on a cold Feb day, but the nearby radiator just about managed to cover for it. To be fair we were told that the main bar area would be warmer.
