Always good food, great value & friendly staff. Tuesday steak night is unbeatable value and quality, you won't get a better tasting steak in Warrington, Opens early and serves a good hearty breakfast at a very reasonable price. We always get consistency here, with the food and the staff, so we always return.

I've been here a number of times for a pub lunch and never been disappointed.
There's no Michelin stars, but I've never had a bad meal here.
Plenty of choice too, big steaks and vegetarian dishes. Also excellent selection of beers and spirits.
Can't go wrong!

Thank Mr W

I decided to sit down and have a meal in the pub with my mother, who is aged 89. The steak club dinners we had were lovely and great value for money. The young female staff member offered to open the disabled toilet for my mother, to save her struggling up the stairs. Very polite! She came over later on to check our food too. Lovely service, caring staff. Will definitely return! See you soon!
