Years ago the Archer had a reputation for being a bit rough so it's a place we avoided, however we kept hearing great reviews so decided to give it a go. We were pleasantly surprised, the decor was clean bright and bistro like and the food was superb, the menu was extensive, I had a bbq chicken pizza which was massive and delicious, the lasagna was home made and also good, the prices were really good including the price of the wine. The waitress was friendly and very helpful. We will certainly go again and thoroughly recommend it if you want good quality pub food in a pleasant environment at a reasonable price.

Popped in for a child free lunch. Just turned 12, so very quiet. Met by a very friendly bar lady and shown into the restaurant. Had a great starter, followed by an equally great main. Would have had a desert, but way too full.
An excellent meal, with a very decent bill to boot.
Highly recommended...

We were a large party of 10, so we pre-ordered our food, when it arrived it was piping hot and freshly cooked. The desserts were delicious. The waiting staff were very polite and nothing was too much trouble. The re-fillable soft drinks (coke, lemonade etc) were a great idea, and cost effective at £2.45. All in all it was a lovely evening you should try it for yourselves.

I was a bit worried about going here for lunch due to a few bad reviews on here but I needn't have worried , from the minute we walked through the door the service was excellent from both waitresses ... helpful chatty and very good at their job.
we had the three courses which was excellent value for money.

Everything was fresh food nothing processed (my biggest bugbear) even homemade Yorkshire pudding ! very good sized portions all served piping hot .. oh and the best gravy !!

I understand there are new owners and a new chef which are both putting their mark on the place !! so please ignore the negative reviews on here and go and try for yourselves... we will be back one evening

Chose this pub since it was close to the hotel we stayed in.
Food was well presented and plenty of it albeit a little restricted on choice. The menui listed a prawn starter of prawns, avocado and crevette. When it came it was just a prawn cocktail and a little dissapointing. To the pubs credit the refunded the starter when questioned, but lacked the chance to explain the change at the point of order.
