“Wont be back!”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

I was so surprised reading the 1st time reviewers reviews of this place that I had to double check we were reviewing the same place!!
Me and 3 others went just last week for a bar lunch and it was a terrible experience. The venue was cold which didnt help and the radio was blaring although in fairness to the nice waitress she did turn it down after we mentioned it.
The food was really bad with the exception of my mothers fish and chips which she said was nice. Macaroni cheese was in fact a plate of cheesy pasta, the cheese and pickle salad we ordered arrived as ham and pineapple and when the error was pointed out, it was clear all they did on return was pick off the ham, not great for a vegetarian.We also didnt think it was worth the money, lots of shredded lettuce, a teaspoon of pickle couple of tomatoes My chicken burger was soo dry i could even cut through it. When we initially made a complaint the owners attitude was verging on being aggressive. He brought out the chef who was approachable and who apologised for the chicken and also agreed that the salad wasnt of standard.
After much resistance from the rude owner he finally agreed that we shouldnt pay full price for the meals we complained about.
Will never go back whilst current owners are running/ruining this place

“Warm, Family Friendly, Reasonably Priced”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Very welcoming pub. Traditional pub grub, but very tasty and resonably priced. I will go back again and again.
