“FOOD LOOKED BETTER THAN IT TASTED”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Mu husband and I were staying near by and found this pub quite by accident and went in for a quick drink on the Friday evening whilst there food was coming out of the kitchen and looked really good and appetising. We then decided on the Saturday to go back and have a meal. I choose the salmon coujons and my husband went for the lamb chops. Cannot fault the staff as they were very pleasant and attentive if very rushed. When the food came my chips were cold and the salmon coujons were luke warm, did not matter as I scrapped off the breadcrumb coating and just ate the fish with the salad. Lamb was tasty but tough. We were both a bit dissapointed, when plates were cleared I commented about the cold chips and luke warm salmon 'the plates aren't very warm' was the response. Perhaps we were just unlucky, who know! Would not rush back.

“Keeps on getting better”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Had a meal last week at the First and Last with my wife and son. Fantastic mussels and steaks. If you are on a diet you had better avoid this pub, large portions of outstanding food.
Don't try and eat three courses, you won't manage it!!!!
