“Long waits, poor service.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

I have tried the venture a few times, it takes forever to get served. At 1230pm we were told having requested a sirloin steak that they had ran out!? The place had been open 30mins. When the rump arrived (having requested the meat be cooked rare) I was met with a lump of burnt meat that was impossible to separate with all my strength. At the same time my partners lamb roast had arrived which looked delicious, and I'm sure would have been had it not been stone cold. My 6 year old daughter tried the children's mixed grill, I removed the burger meat from her plate as I could see the pieces of bone within the meat. During the meal we were met with the loud tv showing a Football match, there is a bar area were sport could surely be played independently to those dinning? i Would like the venture to succeed as we have few pubs in the area. I hope with some care to detail it will do just that.

Food and beer better than thought.service at bar quite slow,educate the staff in customer service. Very sport based, fine for me not so for most as commentary on very loud. Real ale kept well and not too cold

“Very warm friendly staff,wholesome goof grub :)”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

We had a family celebration here and really enjoyed our evening. There were around twelve of us dining and everyone enjoyed their experience and food equally. Everything was of a good if not an excellent standard and the service from the staff was warm and welcoming.
