The food was great as was the service. Maybe a bit noisy for some on a late Friday afternoon, but there should be quieter times as well. Great lunch time specials.

This is a pub atmosphere and is always buzzing. The food was great value for money and the steaks were done to perfection on the tow occasions we visited. The service was good and we can highly recommend this establishment

We had a quick lunch at the Steak and Ale today while waiting for our family to arrive. I had the chicken strips and fried haloumi salad, beyond delicious! Hubby had a lemon and herb chicken burger, also very good!
