We had a family festive lunch there yesterday ahead of Christmas and it was excellent, in one word. Although the table we would have preferred (there were 8 of us) had been taken by another group, we all had a great time and the choice of both beers and wine was abundant. The food was tasty, fresh, and well cooked.... More

We ordered drinks and meal, Black angus steak for her and beer battered fish and chips for me. Her steak was priced at £23 and my fish... More

I normally pass this pub because it looks busy but it's just everyone is just standing outside. Pretty good place to chat by the roadside, people watch and pop over to Nando's for a chicken leg every few hours.

I've been here a few times and it's a lovely pub with nice decor inside, They also have a function room upstairs. However I had food here and it was very disappointing. I had roast beef which was £15 so I was expecting something good! It came out cold and the potatoes and carrots were undercooked. The beef was actually... More

Good pub, good beers, good food!! Packed during football cup. Despite large number of people in the pub, we did not wait long for the food. Food was simple and satisfying. Would return.

I had a birthday party in the upstairs room last night. The staff are brilliant - I had excellent help from Norel in planning the party and the decorations, and Giacomo served behind the party bar, made sure that everything ran smoothly, and liaised with me, making sure I was fully informed. The room is stylish and with balloons, bunting... More
