“Chips......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

we have eaten here a few times and the food has always been OK... not the best meals I have ever had but standard pub fare. Just come back from another lunch there and I felt that I had to comment on the chips....We had the 2 courses for £9 and my sis and I had scampi and chips as our main course. The scampi was lovely but the chips were thick, floury and a tad under cooked...I noticed that another table had ordered chips and they were served in a little tin bucket and were half the size of ours and looked much better quality, so are Cheaper chips served with the specials menu deal I wonder...... Beer battered cod is offered on the main menu but only fish and chips on the special, its actually pollack...I can understand this but don't scrimp on the chips please. !! We did mention this to the staff who have taken it on board. Staff as always cheerful and attentive and a lovely glass of mulled cider to wash it all down with.

“Recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

We had a birthday lunch party of 50 people plus a few children on a busy Saturday. Two areas were set aside for us and the service was excellent, they really went the whole hog to serve us (and kept the normal restaurant going as well. We mostly used the fixed lunch menu which is good value. The pub knows about gluten-free food and has several gf dishes on the main menu. The food was good and the service could not be faulted, the manageress in particular working hard and having a cheery presence . The whole party had a good time. We recommend this pub for normal meals and gatherings.

“Nice gastropub experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

There are several gastropubs in the area, so it's always nice to try another. This was recommended to us by a friend (who lives abroad), and we decided to give it a try. Don't visit if you're planning a romantic evening out, but for a quick meal and some chatter by the fire, it's ideal. The menu is not extensive, but enough to cater for most tastes. Portions are generous, and prices are not unreasonable. Sometimes the service is a little slow, so you might need to be patient.

“It's Christmas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

If you are looking for a proper pub in Stanmore then you need to leave Stanmore and go here. Great staff and good food. Had the ChrIstmas menu 3 courses for £20.00.

Booked a table online, although you can just ring them if you prefer.

Bottle of Merlot was £15.00.

Go there
