My husband and I took our grandson there for lunch as he is studying at the university. The food was hot and tasty and plenty of it! Quite noisy and unfortunately we were there on a Sunday and the only free table was beside the TV with football on. However we were still able to chat.

Hi thank you for taking time to do a review I am glad you enjoyed your meal. We were rather busy but so glad you did get a table if you are visiting again you can book online and get a quieter table away from the television in the conservatory ( no tv's) tables 20-35 ) just ask in the comments section

thanks again and we hope to see you again soon

We have been to this pub a few times recently and love the vegan option on the specials board. We have tried the pizza without cheese too which was really nice. Hope we can extend the vegan options further? A bit weak on puddings in fact I could not see anything suitable? A few local pubs have started including a vegan pudding such as apple pie with vegan ice cream...a thought for the future? Will keep coming in often we love the atmosphere in the pub and it is nice to sit in a roomy area. Staff all pleasant and efficient . Look forward to a few more vegan options?

Booked online, table set up when we got there but was near the door but we moved with no issues.
The roast dinner was gorgeous and the sticky toffee pudding the best I've ever had.
Staff were really friendly.

Busy, cheerful atmosphere on the Saturday evening we visited. Plenty of people with a good balance between drinkers and eaters. Good service from the bar, wide choice on the menu of classic pub food - loaded nachos, burgers, fish and chips, Caesar salad - with decent veggie options, good sharing platters and nice-sounding puddings. Their 20” pizzas looked delicious, too. Portions were generous and good quality.
A good all-round neighbourhood pub that I’d look forward to visiting again if I lived locally.
