“Won't be going back!”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Booked a table in advance which was ready when we arrived. Food ok, large portions but nothing to write home about. During our meal a fight broke out, the language was horrific and culminated into the Police being called out. Obviously, this wasn't the best dining experience and possibly the incident was out of the publicans hands, but what we found more shameful was that not one member of staff uttered any sort of apology for the disturbace and generally went about their business as if nothing had happened. Maybe this is normal behaviour within this pub?

“Sailors Home”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

We booked for 20 people on a sunday evening, and were most impressed. Despite the shabby looking exterior which had initially put us off the staff were very welcoming and accomodated a large party (with lots of loud children!) excellently. The food was just as good, I ate the pasta and it was huge and very yummy. We had starters mains and desserts and one of the staff even came out and gave the children a chocolate each. Overall reccomended.
