“Quickie at the Wickie”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Dropped in for a quick lunch on Wednesday, expecting to find an empty pub, but got quite the opposite... The place was pretty much full of (mainly older) folks tucking into some very good looking food. Managed to bag the last available table for two and ordered lunch (Plaice and chips for madam, sausage filled Yorkshire Pud and chips for me).

Food quality was great and there was plenty of it (these silver haired folk aren't daft you know)! Service was friendly and fast and there was a nice atmosphere about the place. This is a traditional town pub that really has found it's niche and knows what it's customers want... Good food at (very) reasonable prices... Will definitely drop in again soon :-)

“Superb value for money.”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

This pub offers great home cooked food. Generous portions at very reasonable prices. The mixed grill, grilled plaice & cottage pie to name a few are excellent. For real ale drinkers the choice is a little limited but the ales on offer are kept to a very high standard, as a Camra member I can definitely recommend them.

“lovely lunch”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Just had lunch here, four of us, very reasonably priced and the hot meals were piping hot and not a crumb left on any of the dishes. From the moment we walked in the bar staff were very pleasant, service was prompt and the food was delicious - four pints, soft drink, three main meals and a snack £36 - well worth a visit for lunch.

“Good pub, and the food looked good”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Just called in for a quick lunchtime pint for the first time in decades. There was a choice of cask beers, which is essential for any good pub, as far as I'm concerned, and the pint I had was excellent. The service was good, and the surroundings were pleasant.
