On entering our noses told us we were passing the Gents toilets. We climbed the stairs into the drab interior of what is known as the Lounge. We had been in the Lounge two minutes before a female voice (off stage) told us she would be with us in a minute. I ordered two identical drinks which she passed through... More

This was our first visit, and we all (4 adults, 3 children aged 10 and two 6 year olds) agreed we would be back! On a very cold evening after watching a hockey match, we were delighted to receive a warm welcome. The service was excellent, the menu extensive and the food was piping hot and delicious.

A group of 28 elderly (over 65's) enjoyed a 2 course lunch (main and dessert). We pre-orderd with some last minute changes. Owner and staff coped brilliantly with food served promptly. Quality was great and portions were larger than expected, So excellent value for money.

I checked the website for the menu before visiting. Looked at the options but didn't check the prices were the same. Ordered a mini steak off the lunch menu med/well which came out very well done. We were not offered any sauces etc and on paying the bill it came through two pounds more expensive. Ten pounds for a 4... More

The place is clean tidy and very welcoming. Has a lovely kiddy area which not many good pubs have. We had one lady who served us who was always willing to help even entertained the kids 😊 and gave us a good giggle. Was a lovely meal... very hearty very what and we wanted. (Lamb shank and a steak baguette)... More

Great place to go in the summer as the beer garden is by the river, this is for adults only. There is another beer garden which is near the children's play area for families. They have fish n chip nights, pie nights and steak nights. Great for a couple wanting some good wholesome food, or even families. Nice traditional pub... More
