I have no idea why my bird dragged me into this dump. But it’s genuinely worse than a Wetherspoons. Great place to go if you fancy a laugh about how bad somewhere is.

That it could do with a tidy up is putting it mildly but the beer was cold and the food was well priced and served quickly. Staff were friendly but some of the customers less so.

Used to love going here for lunch but my latest visit was a different story. Ordered a chicken Tikka masala which was tasteless and bland, watery and the rice was half the portion than usual. Will not be back!

Visited on 2 nights. The place could do with a big overhaul. The hop house larger was cold & bar staff were friendly. Their Wi-Fi isn't working which can make doing emails over a pint difficult to non-existant. Tables were pretty dirty & didn't get...More

It means they don't give a damn about their customers, only interested in making money out of there drink, thats why you have to wait 45 mins for your meal.
