“Great grub, but industrial deafness awaits you”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

Paid my first visit here last week after hearing great reviews. I was not disappointed. The fish and chips were top notch!
Unfortunately, the racket in the place is a little off-putting. Too many hardwood surfaces causing reverberation of sound, causing everyone to shout louder.
Some soft furnishings would help the acoustics and make it much more enjoyable.
Staff were very friendly. Great service.
I will go back - with earplugs!

“Consistently good”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Have eaten in the Tap Room on several occasions and the food is consistently good. Portions are good and the food is fresh and tasty. The chicken pakora is excellent as are the chicken fahitas and fish and chips. Staff are always friendly and attentive and the prices are reasonable. Nice atmosphere about the place particularly at weekends. On a personal note I don't particularly like their draught lagers (San Miguel, Fosters and Tennants). Would be more than happy to go back.

Really not impressed. The staff were very unfriendly. Friends and family will certainly not be revisiting.
