“Gone to the Dogs!!”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

We've been visiting this pub on a regular basis, at least once or twice a month, for 6 years, and have eaten here regularly. Unfortunately it changed hands about 9 months ago and since then the dog has gone to the dogs!
We had the Sunday lunch recently, yes there's lots of it, but how much lousy food do you want? It is served all plated up like an overgrown school dinner, with what I strongly suspect to be tinned veg and pathetic frozen Yorkshire puddings.
There are 2 or 3 real ales on offer but quality varies between acceptable and completely undrinkable. This has led to most of the regulars voting with their feet and going elsewhere.
On our last visit there was a horrendous stink of buring fat coming from the kitchen, which was making people's eyes water in the bar,there was a semi-tame pigeon flying around the bar and the pub is generally shabby.
I won't be going back again until I see the sign saying "under new management"

“Great Sunday Lunch”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

First time we have visited this pub and it won't be the last. The food was very tasty with generous portions. The staff were friendly and attentive and made us feel very welcome. The only slight criticism would be the loudness of the music which was a little intrusive. Lively and pleasant atmosphere, highly recommend a visit.

“HUGE portions!”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

Went here for Sunday lunch for the first time since the new owners took over. The portions are absolutely massive, and very cheaply priced compared to most other pubs in the area. Choice of 3 meats, plate comes piled high with generous portions of meat, roast potatoes and every other veg you could think of.
Only negatives are that it was very quiet so felt like everyone could hear our conversation & we could hear all the staffs conversation and also not all of te food was fresh (tinned carrots, frozen roasties & Yorkshire puds) but for the price you can't really complain. Just needs a bit more of an atmosphere.
