The barman was lovely and made great drinks. He deserves a payrise! The place does need TLC and the games area needs improving. Some music in there at least. Food was lovely!

We were looking for somewhere to have lunch whilst on an assignment. Looking for good quality home cooked food really that would keep us going into the evening. There was quite a selection to choose from here including sandwiches etc. We opted for two main meals of a burger & fries and fish n chips. The burger tasted good -... More

Visited early as a family....waited for nearly an hour for food. Very ordinary bar meals. £12.95 for poor quality scampi straight from the freezer with frozen chips ! Waiter rushed off his feet,and lots of diners complaining. Checked our order twice, but still came out wrong !

We were hungry and ate some food. Meh.. nothing to write home about. Soup for starters- large portion but mediocre taste. Tagliatelle for main - again satisfactory. Staff were pleasant.

This is a nice bar, lots of chairs and tables, some comfortable seating, an open fire and a decent stocked bar. The barman is excellent and really friendly. We had a lunch meal here too which was well presented and good value for money. The sandwiches are very nice and the cream tea lovely. We had an evening meal here... More

We called in here for food and drinks tonight. Service was great but only one person on trying to be waiter and serve drinks too. However his service was great and friendly. Food was nice too, I've given the average rating as I found the choice on the menu to be very limited, and also the portion sizes were very... More

Called in last Saturday, early evening. Had bolognese with garlic bread and scampi and chips. Both red hot and large portions on our table 20 minutes from placing the order. The decor was old, but then so is the pub ! It could have done with a bit of a spruce up and our table had not been wiped down... More

Visited for dinner. Traditional bar food in a pub setting - wooden pannelling decor a bit tired. Gammon was very good with 2 eggs chips peas and relish for 12.95. Pudding was very disappointing. Only 3 choices. Went for strawberries and cream. Terrible value. 2 spoons of cream and 2 small strawberries diced! More cream and strawberries. Cost 5.95!

Waited over an hour for our food with 2 young children, the food was over priced. When it finally arrived it was ok but not worth the cost or wait. Always a long queue at the bar as only 1 barman, he was very helpful & friendly but clearly needs more staff. Would not return here, a real disappointment &... More
