A steak and a glass of wine for such a fantastic price! You couldn't ask for any more. The steak was cooked to perfection and the service was amazing!!

“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is a Wetherspoons pub but located centrally by the market place. They have outdoor space and the interior is pleasantly laid out with space between tables. The menu is typically pub-grub but there is quick service. No reservations for tables though.

“Good food; great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Quite different - all the quality and famikiarity of a Wetherspoon pub but "if you didn't know, you wouldn't" because the "Wetherspoon logo etc is not prevalent - and that's ok! There is a relaxed atmosphere, the staff are friendly and they have a wide variety of seating! We found 2 enormous, comfy wing chairs where I spent several hours reading and enjoying a drink until "the other 2" joined me, when we enjoyed a relaxing, delicious meal with the steaks cooked to order (one almost a cinder, one almost mooing!!) We have visited this pub before; it's a definite find when we are in the area! Parking not so hot "on the doorstep, especially on market day BUT lots of assorted parking close by!
