Saturday night out with friends and heard a lot about the pub. The service was very good but there were a few things missing from the menu and I was not expecting it to be a sports bar. Great lunch time location or even midweek after work venue but not for my Saturday night out. There are better options.

I could not fault the food and the steak was cooked perfectly and loved the chips. The service was good. But it was very noisy and crowded which surprised me being early evening (but it was Saturday) I would visit again but not on a Saturday. If it had been quieter with more atmosphere I would have scored higher.

We visited this pub as it was closest to the restaurant we were goin to. Football was on the TV and it was crammed with blokes staring at the TV's who would not move out of the way to get to the bar. Eventually got to the bar to be ignored for 5 mins as the bar staff chatted to... More

Very disappointed , soup starter was good but the roast wasn't . I don't expect to pay £12 for frozen roast potatoes and aunt Bessie's yorkshires . I see they are advertising for a chef , hope they get one soon and get back up to standard as we have always enjoyed the roast in the past

Went in here in a recommendation as they had Prosecco on tap, only to find it has been changed out to Frizzante. Decided to eat here and had their risotto. It was OK, not outstanding, but perfectly edible and satisfactory.

Only popped in for a drink in the past but stopped for dinner on this occasion. Nice selection of food, good quality and quantity and I can recommend the pies! A real surprise and one to stick on the reliable list, I'd recommend and revisit.
