Don't expect to be wowed or disappointment will soon follow. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. Reasonably priced pub grub which is OK. A lot of the grilled dishes are now presented on a sizzling dish on "a bed of onions", smells like a fairground at times. Overall appearance of the pub a bit grubby... More

After a day out, we called here with the family and had a lovely meal. You have to order at the bar, but the meal didn't take long to come, which was good for the two hungry boys we had in our group. There is plenty of choice, even in the children's menu and the staff are friendly and efficient.... More

Stopped by for an evening meal mid week, it was extremely busy but I did find a table. The food was above average in quality and met a budget. Staff were helpfull and plentifull, the wine menu was pretty interesting too. I would visit again if I was in the area.

Booked table on line which was simple/easy/quick to do. Seated straight away. Carvery was fresh, hot, tasty with plenty of choice. Excellent service provided by a very pleasant young man called Chris. All in all excellent value for money, clean, friendly atmosphere.

Food was good, service ok had to wait for gravy while my food went cold. Advertises itself as being a real ale pub, asked what ale they had on, none at all, not really a place to go if you want a nice pint of real ale, bit disappointing

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately we experienced a point last week where our delivery cane on the same day that we became out of stock. We need to allow the Ale to settle before we can serve. I apologise that we were out of stock. More
