“Disappointing......”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Disappointing is probably the word best used to describe our dining experience,which is unfortunate given that I'd chosen it for a family birthday meal based on its high ranking. I had pre-booked a table for 5 adults plus 1 child (high chair required) but when we arrived at 530pm on a Monday evening they didn't seem to be expecting us and they directed us to a sort of side room on our own (the other tables in the room remained empty throughout the evening). When I say directed I mean pointed in the general direction of the room,so we weren't sure which table to sit at as none of them were laid out as they were in the main restaurant section, and we had to fetch a high chair. The food was ok,nothing special,just average really. The service was very slow,we were in there for over 2 hours and it didn't appear very busy. There were only 5 of us and really we only had 2 courses (except for 1 person ordering a dessert of ice cream which you wouldn't expect would take that long to prepare). Plus points were that the food was clearly prepared from fresh and under 5's eat for free. We thought we'd try somewhere different based on good reviews,but I think next time we'll stick to what we know!

“Good local food”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

My wife and I dine here quite often as we live locally. Great food and a good selection of changing beers. Booking advised at busy times and Bank Holidays.

“Little gem - excellent beer”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Now, if you like good well kept ale, this is the place to come, the ales are always changing, there are local and national ones, but these beers are served from exceptionally friendly staff. There is a generally very pleasant atmosphere, where you can talk to anyone and feel welcomed. The manager is a star also. Not forgetting the 5 star snooker tables if you fancy a game.
