“No food served here. Not a restaurant.”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

This is not a restaurant. They do not serve any food. Peanuts? Yes. Hot food? No. You will come out as hungry as you came in. Is this one hundred characters yet?

Went in with friends from work. What a good night. Reasonably priced drinks and good atmosphere. Salford Pale Ale excellent.

“Awful”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Went for a meal on a voucher where we ŵere supposed to have a choice of stews, curry or goulash. On arrival we were told that the room we had booked was now no longer available despite speaking to the manager 2 nights before and were told then that it was sorted. We had 2 booths not ideal for a large group of people.
The menu consisted of corned beef hash or quorn hash and we were asked if we were vegetarian and when we said no then we no longer had a choice!
Overall dreadful even with the price tag of £5.18 it was too much don't waste your money go elsewhere!!

“Food, not glorious food”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Having booked an evening meal - the crockpot deal. We were VERY disapppointed with what we were served. There was only 2 options - corned beef hash or quorn hash. It arrived not in a crock but a large shallow soup bowl, we were given a knife and fork to eat this soup like concoction. There was no corned beef but minced beef, very little potato and carrot. The crusty bread was an asda wholemeal roll. Even the £4.30 price tag was too much!

“Great pub, great music”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We visited this pub before a Morrissey gig in July 2012 and it was great. The music for the night was mainly Smiths/Morrissey due to the pub being full of people going to the gig, but I get the impression that this pub will always play great music. Met some very interesting characters including a mother of 10 kids.
