Popped in for lunch, and chose a hot beef sandwich. I had only just sat down from placing the order at the bar and the food arrived! Gravy in a separate gravy boat was a good touch, but beef was a bit chewy. Disappointing, but staff were good and friendly,

Seems a very popular traditional pub, not on an estate so folks must think its worth the trip. Our food was excellent, good sized portions and well prepared, unlike the freezer fayre favoured by many places. Didn't try the alcohol but there were a good number of people drinking a full range of lagers and beers. The decor is old... More

Dropped in on Saturday evening on our way home. A lot of choice, generous portion sizes and delicious home cooked pub food! My wife had the chicken curry and it was MASSIVE. I had the mixed grill and it was all really nice. Would definitely return.

Arrived by chance for lunch with my sister. My previous experience hadn't been that good so I was delighted to see that the restaurant had been decorated and a new carpet fitted since my last visit some time ago. The menu was varied. We both settled on a chicken dish in a delicious sauce. The food was fresh and very... More

We have been here a couple of times. Good value for money. Shame it's not homemade chips. You get what you pay for though.

Raining today so not worth going out and about but decided to drive out for lunch. Decided to try Keel Row. Surprised. Nice lunch, reasonably priced. Will return.

Staff serving were absolutely fantastic but this place was really let down by the standard of food. Reheated tasteless food, dry chicken, deserts served frozen and coffee cups with lipstick on. Do I need to say more?
