Excellent food and excellent service. One of the best steak meals I've had in Abingdon. Nothing to much too ask. New landlords were very friendly and welcoming. :-)

Recently visited here after avoiding the place for a year as the food has never been great - and consequently reduced frequency to a meeting place only for the first drink. If you do visit stick to the standard/simple fish and scampi meals (2 for £10 options) .

Despite concluding never again a few years ago we let our guard down and went for steaks. Awful - worst cut of meat ever! Complained but the manager was less than polite. We booked at late notice, but despite beign told we could be squeezed in it was only half full and virtually empty by 20:30. Numerous friends have since confirmed it is renowned for poor quality food.

We all agreed never to return - even for meeting up for a drink!

With the increasing number of restaurants in Abingdon there is no reason to visit here. Particularly as the new weatherspoon offers superior food for half the price - and I never expected to type that.

Called in on the off chance and was able to get a table. There was a few Xmas parties but was not too noisy. Ordered a sharing platter to start which was ok but not amazing. For mains we both went for the lwmb steak, one with salad and one with veg. It looked promising when it arrived but unfortunatly they were both very overcooked and we could not chew it. The staff were good and took them away and offered us something else. However we declined and payed for the drinks and starters. On leaving staff did apologise again and asked us to try them again. However I don't think we will as I am not really in that area of town.
