Hadn't visited this pub for ages but what an improvement. Very friendly staff and prompt service. The food was excellent, prepared as requested and certainly good value for money.

The waitress was very polite and helpful however the manager who should be a face of the restaurant was not very professional, his trousers were hanging down and he was mumbling something with his back turned so we...
