Visited this place after a full day at Alton Towers so we were really ready for a nice meal and sit down. There were so many restaurant options in the area on TripAdvisor that it was quite difficult narrowing it down to one. It happened to be pie and pint night and the place was full. They managed to squeeze... More

Turned up at the pub at 8.15pm. Was told there wasn't a table till 9pm. Waited till 9pm then was told they were sorry but couldn't offer us a meal as they were full. We were already sitting at a table in the bar area and other people were eating in the bar area. I get the impression this being... More

I am very sorry to hear you were so dissatisfied with your visit. Just to share our side of the story. You arrived, as you say, at 8.15pm - both our dining room and snug room were full at this time and we had more bookings to come in. We had been turning away reservations all day as couldn't accommodate... More

To my mind, the reviews of this pub imply far better than reality. We popped in for a light lunch on a Saturday. Once parked, we almost left straight away. Not very inviting from the outside and the information board states food served 12-2 although the website states 12-9. Gone 2pm, we went in and asked behind the bar if... More
