“Well, it's basic”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Impression after several visits is a drinkers' pub with basic unexciting food as a sideline. Rather noisy at the bar which impinges on the adjacent eating area; the other eating area is quieter but rather stark. Popular with and ideal for families and young children whi like to run around. Not the place for a celebratory or romantic dinner.

“Another great family meal”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

We booked for a large family party after christmas last year and the staff were very accommodating and helpful considering it was a last minute booking
We've since had other family get-togethers there and always been pleased with the food and the service
Overall a very nice place to eat with brilliant menu and well cooked food

“Lots are better”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Ate in restaurant. Standard prices for this area,which in many cases overpriced.Food tasty,but my
meal was hugely overpriced, and did not live up to its description of being a Chowder,was left feeling hungry. .
Have 2 course lunches for less than i was charged for one dish, and in far better surroundings too.the pace was rather scruffy and rundown. OK if you eat off standard menu,but do not expect
too much from the main menu

Good food, good ale, good service, enough said. This pub is very local to me and we go there nearly every weekend.
