Visited on 18/11/16 as a spur of the moment thing. I used to work here 5 years ago and it has seriously been neglected since then. The ceilings were rotten, the windows were rotten, we ordered our meals, the chilli nachos came without sauce and we're freezing cold, the mains were delivered and we were told by the waitress "sorry...

Called for a quick lunch as can usually rely on quick, great value food here. Just had the plain burger deal - burger and skinny fries with a pint for £6.39 each. It is what you would expect, decent basic food, nicely cooked and well priced.

The staff are friendly and helpful but the pub is now in very poor condition . It's ok if you don't look up at the ceiling which in quite a few places has had leaks and looks like it might fall down on you . The men's toilets are a disgrace as the floor is constantly wet and they smell... More

Attending local theater with local friends. I stayed the one night only. The staff at the bar etc were great. As always (I have stayed before on a number of occasions) The food was good and served with a smile. The room was good and a guaranteed good nights sleep, as i find the beds very comfortable. All in all... More

2 years ago we chose this venue to cater for our wedding, 2 years later and the staff, food and environmental quality are all still as high.

Nice hotel. Great meals and friendly bar staff. I find it not as popular as it used to be. However, if you fancy a meal for two for£10 and steak and chips I say try this place.

We visited for an easy early tea before heading out after a busy Sunday morning. I was really disappointed to find that they had stopped doing the carvery again as we had this on a previous visit and it was delicious. Anyway I had curry and my other half had an all day breakfast. Both meals were delicious, plentiful and... More

The food here is OK, if you want five star or even four then don't expect it. It's nothing fancy so don't go expecting gourmet dishes, my steak was over cooked but I couldn't be bothered to queue and argue. The service was good to be fair with the blonde foreign girl being very helpful during our visit and very... More

Well let me start with the food, it is disgusting to say it's boil in a bag and warmed up from a packet I don't understand how it can be so vile. The staff are brilliant always happy however you have a new manager that is miserable, rude and ignorant. I have been visiting for many years but until things... More
