I popped in here for lunch with my mum and sister. The standard was pretty poor. We ordered coffee first, my latte arrived with lipstick on the glass, I brought it up the bar to tell the waitress and got no apology, instead I was bluntly told "I will have to put it in a cappuccino cup so cause we...

Really enjoyed the curry and a great bottle of wine. Nice friendly pub which was quite busy with families, couples and friends. Good food and a good atmosphere.

Portion sizes were beyond generous, and it was the best value for money we have had in a long time. I had the chicken wrap, my... More
