Landlady's husband terribly rude, tried to overcharge us by £10 and then became nasty when questioned. Food was disgusting and had hair in. After 'hairy' meal was returned, bar man took to giving dirty looks and drumming fingers on the bar. If you like microwave meals and grumpy old men, this is the place to be. We could not wait to leave and will not ever return.

came here for a meal with my girlfriends and was shocked at the sevice. landladys husband is a very rude man. tried to over charge by 10 then told me i was wrong even when it was in black and white that he was trying to over charge. if the bloke smiled im pretty sure he would crack his face. the landlady and her very rude husband will leave you standing at the bar waiting to order your drinks whilst they stand and talk to there friends. they could see me waiting but carried on talking.
food came there was a black hair on the food. went to inform the happy man behind the bar only to be stopped in mid sentence that i need to speak to the landlady. RUDE RUDE RUDE!!!!!!!

Depends when you go but if they're still up, this place heaves with kids running around. Meals keenly priced. I've had bad meals there which really ought to have been put in the pig bin, quite appalling. If I'm eating in a cheap place (and this has some cheap offers), I only expect to get what my meal is honestly worth and the one I had was revolting. But there we have it, families have less and less money to spend even if they can afford eating out, so if you're taking your lot in here you'll be in good company with the family, just have enough to pay the bill, so enjoy it! When you get a bit better off and the kids leave home, try the other places around for the Bucket and Spade has a job to keep up with the field.

Went there for a Sunday carvery because we live local we had paid for our carvery we had to wait at the the bar at least 30mins before anyone served us that was astonishing. When we had finally ordered our carvery the only thing they had left was gammon and parsnips also some carrots after they had offered us some chips instead of roast potatoes. The lady stood behind the counter in her chef uniform should be ashamed that she can call herself a chef. I know the problem they have with this pub is not having a manager and not having qualified staff to do the job with all the skilled unemployed people at the moment could be easily solved and could make it as good as it was many many years ago so please avoid.

This place suffered from lack of staff. Had to wait in a long queue to place order for food and drinks. Tables had not been cleared, dirty dishes all over the large pub. Would have gone elsewhere, but didn't know the area... and had been travelling all day. The food was passable. Could not recommend.
