Great pub with loads of character. Good food and value for money. We had a party hiring out the skittle alley which is great for the money also. Sadly let down by poor service, Staff don't acknowledge you when you enter or are at the bar waiting. They are so slow to serve you - they look unhappy like they don't want to be there - not the best for a cosy welcoming pub! We had 15 people for a party and were expected to order from the bar and carry drinks through the busy restaurant or beer garden. When I asked if we could simply order and have them brought through to us when they were ready, I was told they only do table service to the beer garden, not the skittle alley which is about 1 meters beyond the beer garden - strange,
Everything seems like too much hassle for the staff which strikes to me as bad management. Not hospitable. However, not a horrendous experience but I wouldn't rush back!
