“A pub that does food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

It's ok, it caters for a lot of early morning/all day drinkers. Does ok food. Only problem the toilets are up lots of stairs, although I do seem to remember there was a disabled loo if you asked for a key?

“Home from home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

OK, it's just a Weatherspoons, but it's fast, friendly, clean (in the restaurant area anyway) and good honest value. The Tuesday Grill Night and Sunday roast chicken (avoid the other roasts) are especially good value, and there is always a great selection of real ales. It has a split personality between the restaurant and the bar -- Go in the back door and avoid the bar area, filled with hard-core drinkers even at breakfast. Yuck.

“An easy option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Food is quite nice, presented well, very good prices. Service is usually good (unless the young staff forget staff while chatting to each other). A very good option for popping in for an inpromptu light meal while in the town. Very clean.

“Food ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

the food here is ok, depending on the chef sometimes food has had to be returned more than once, my husbands aunt asked for a steak to be done medium and it was so well done she couldn't even cut it with a steak knife!
