“Good old fashioned pub grub”
Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile


I was here yesterday for a friends birthday, I opted for the meal deal £12 two meals & a bottle of wine, such a bargain at that price.
The food was plentiful & tasty, service was spot on too.

“Definitely value for money”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

You get what you pay for plus more here.
I ate the chicken curry with rice and chips which was very tasty and there was certainly plenty of it. My parents opted for a club sandwich and a BLT, which again were very good value and came with homemade coleslaw, salad and crisps.
Yes, the pub and its toilets could do with a lick of paint but you certainly couldn't say it wasn't clean.
The staff were extremely polite and couldn't do enough to ensure you had a nice lunch/drink.
You if fancy a cheap, hearty lunch and you're not too much of a snob en I certainly recommend!!

“Worse Pub food ever!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Visited Tess Riley's Sunday afternoon with my hubby. Ordered chicken curry with chips & rice, hubby had steak philly baguette with chips. Curry was like sludge, chips hard nearly raw.
Baguette soggy, tasteless steak,basically worst pub food we've had in a long time.
Then I visited the ladies.... awful, old, tatty, smelly. Two cubicles, toilet paper in one, no handwash soap and dryer didnt work.
Should have stuck to my golden rule, always check the toilets before ordering in a pub/restaurant, always a give away of whats to come.
Shame, Tess Riley's used to do the best homemade chips ever. Afraid we won't be going back.
