Visited today for the second time. Food was well presented and plentiful but the service was a let down. We had to help ourselves to the menus after arriving 15 minutes earlier. We then had to go to the bar and order drinks as no one came to take our order, the coffee didn't arrive so we had to order... More

We visited last night, very impressed with the refurbishment. Disappointed with the food... The leak and potatoe soup was average, the carrots were hard and the gravy that came with the pie was nearly black and was very thick and extremely lumpy (it was like glue), chips average. Didn't feel welcoming and we will not be returning.

Not been in the area long. First review of the traders was not good. However since the refurb, this is a very nice place to dine and if you don't want to eat then you can relax in a fine atmosphere with fellow local. The games area is just what is needed in Mellor great this is our treat venue... More

Went for a lunchtime snack on a Thursday with the family. Waited ages for anyone to come to us and ended up asking someone at the bar to come and take our order. No prawns or duck spring rolls left so ordered a hot beef and onion sandwich on brown bread amongst other things. When it finally arrived after we... More

Refurbishment looks good. Nothing major had changed, but everything looks nicer and cleaner. We had to wait quite a while for the food to arrive, but when it did finally arrive it was well worth the wait. Good portions, very tasty and the burger was particularly good. My mum was also very pleased with the offer of a free meal... More

First visit since the refurbishment and it looks good. Glad to see the return of the snooker table and the removal of the carpet. This pub was noticeably busier than previously. However, the waitress was sullen and I never saw a smile from her all the time we were there. I asked if they could make a child's sandwich, an... More

Been re furbished since our previous visit. A lovely clean pub and toilets. Staff, food, drinks, prices all good. Plenty of choice and loving the new décor. Peaceful outside too on a sunny day. Would definitely re visit.

No menu available, there was a board on the wall showing the dishes available but you had to stand over people eating to view, (glad I wasn't sat in that area) The service was poor, I heard several people requesting condiments, we had to request cutlery and we had an apology for the lenghth of time we had to wait...

Booked a table and turned up to find we didn't to book. Shown to our table and told that food would take some time to arrive - not sure why as it wasn't busy. The food was good, and reasonably priced, but there was something lacking about the place. The refurbishment looked good, but no atmosphere. When we finished our... More
