Shame !!! I loved this place when I went first on a sunday night but yesterday monday night was very disappointing !!!
The service was nearly inexistant, understaffed place. The fish pie promised with salmon haddock and prawns, only had 2 bits of haddock, 1 small prawn and nearly inexistant salmon in it. I learned later that they had run out of fish and seafood but still served me a fish pie with nearly no fish in it and mainly mash for 8 GBP which is scandalous.
My father in law said the Gents toilets had no toilet paper, no drying towel and the handdryer was not working which is unhygienic.
I was disappointed by this time, maybe it depends of the evening, sometimes it is lovely home cooked meal and sometimes it is only just decent to be called a restaurant

We stopped overnight next door and ate breakfast here and were very pleasantly surprised.
The service was good, the venue was clean - not just the tables but where you collect the coffee and cereals from and people were there keeping it so - not waiting until end of service.
You got to choose exactly what you wanted for breakfast and how much and it was competently cooked to order - so nice to see instead of having a hot buffet filled up first thing then everything drying out by the time you turn up.
Sausages and bacon were tasty - as were the mushrooms, hash brown and egg. Quality of the produce was good to see too.
In all - well done - I enjoyed it.

I tend to go here only as a last resort really with my two young boys as it is within walking distance. The food is ok, the staff are friendly but the softplay really let's it down. It is very dated with nothing much for the little ones to do on the ground floor. They could do with some ride-ons but probably against health & safety in a pub? The kids do like the 2nd floor of the play gym but I find it very grimy, the mats could do with a good scrub.

Always a friendly greeting. Usual pub grub - food ok and well cooked but boring.
Offers galore plus usual two for one.
Tried and trusted format but tired and lacking.
Menu definitely in need of new thought, new design.
I only use it because it's so handy to where I live.
