This place is going down hill fast, if you want to experience the North Pole. Visit here, shocking! No heating at the back! Staff unhelpful, could not care. Glasses left on tables, no clearing up, no cups for tea of coffee!!

Wonderful staff got to have a lovely chat with Emily and kayleigh, very friendly and I didn't feel rushed at all! I even had the pleasure of meeting the manager. The food was lovely and didn't take long to get to us considering the amount of people. was one of the best pub lunches I have had. Highly recommended!!!
