Had a meal here tonight with friends, would highly recommend, I had stilton sausages and a bloody mary on a bed off mash with red wine jus, well worth a visit if you are in the area. Great service. 5* from the four of us. Keep up the good work

Have been using this pub the last few weeks after new management take over. Took the family in today for a roast. Topside beef and garlic lemon chicken were the 2 meats... both were delicious. All 8 of us really enjoyed the food and clean plates all round- including the kids! Staff are friendly and great value for money also.... More

Good beer served by friendly staff at good prices. The only downside was that a couple of the beers on the taps weren't available.

Been meaning to come here before but until it reopened, it was rarely available. Looks good from the outside and pleasant inside. Only dropped in for a quick pint but apparently the food is good. Advertises karaoke so imagine its lively on those nights. Has a lot of competition in this area of town. Service was friendly and would return.

This review only concerns the way our problem was dealt with efficiently and professionally by Matt Martin the premises manager. Mr Martin explained that a booking mishap was Groupons sole responsibility albeit the day previous to our booking we were led to believe by a member of staff that our booking stood.
