“Good atmosphere - good choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014

This is very much a bar-meals kind of place one reviewer has called it Wetherspoons in disguise. If it is then it's a very up-market version but at Wetherspoon prices. The atmosphere is good and the food well prepared and efficiently served. The staff were very friendly and prepared to make helpful suggestions about the best items available.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

Good pub food, service excellent.
Downside, it gets very busy early on. Best advice would be to try eating there a little later in the evening. Apart from that, no problems.

“Weatherspoons in disguise..”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

Whole area inside and out, smelt of frying food, rather rowdy lager loutish crowd.. Understand that the problem with outside areas are that they are hard to police, but some of then ale staff did nothing to address the raucous behaviour..

“Great for any traveller - young or old”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Very welcoming atmosphere and there is something for everyone. Plenty of outdoor seating with umbrellas and loads of options indoors for the pub goers (pool table, darts, etc.) up front and booths in tables for everyone. We saw infants to elders - the service at the pub counter and is superb and quick. Good option of food, decent prices, quality food. After a long day of travel, hiking, sight-seeing...this is a great place to get a meal and unwind.
