          Very nice family place for weekend dinners. Kids love playground. This is the best part of this place. Food is good, like good pub food. Don't know where to go, but you are always happy to have pub food. Try The Sphinx.

          Enjoyed lunch at the Sphinx with the kids. Food was good and portions very generous. Kids meals were especially good value. The indoor play area for the kids was excellent; one of the best indoor play areas I have seen in a pub.

          Had a good night about 20 of us went for dinner. Staff were friendly and helpful. The food was reasonable priced ,the roast of the day was very good . Plenty of parking also a good atmosphere with a party room for large groups.
