“TERRIBLE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

Filthy place, broken dirty tables toilets a disgrace.Food was appalling my grandchild vomited half way through the meal as she bit into something she said tasted rotten.IT was a chicken wrap.When we complained the waitress whisked it away very sharpish. I had the all day breakfast which was grease personified.The beans had been warmed up so often they were completely dried out the egg was black on the base obviously the cooking utensil was dirty.The machine for tea/coffee was broke so we couldn't even get a warm drink. Disgusting place Avoid at all costs.

“Very happy customer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

Me and a friend had lunch here today and can't fault it! The staff were welcoming and friendly, food came out 10mins after ordering and the girl behind the bar brought our drinks to our table! Price, service, food, everything 10/10 would definitely recommend!

“Poor”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Quite possibly one of the worst pubs I've ever visited (and that's quite a lot!). Food service time shocking (over 40 mins and we weren't warned of this), dirty toilets which obviously hadn't even been cleaned since the night before, slow staff - 15 mins and us needing to ask to have empty plates removed and just generally not nice- stairs to toilets were disgusting- Clearly not cleaned or hoovered in a long time and posters telling us about sport in September (today is 27th oct!). Poor poor and definitely wouldn't recommend!

“food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Cannot fault the food here the steaks where juicy and the price was low .
only problem we had was the steak we did want there wasn't any of so we had to have an alternative , and as this was on they're steak night and I cant say they were overly busy, you would expect them to have enough of every kind of steak.
In the course of a week tried to order a sirloin 3 times and 3 times couldn't get 1 .

“It's a good job I had eaten before seeing the loos”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

I went here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The food was a 6 out of 10.

The toilets were -5 out of 10! The choices were; With seat but no loo roll, no loo roll & no seat, sick everywhere... etc you get where I am going with this. In fact out of about 8 loos there was just 1 which had the usual basics. This was not just a few hours of use. They clearly had not been cleaned or even looked at by a member of staff from the night before. Yak!

I will not be going back.
