Nice pub, good service at bar, friendly and polite. Waitress service is not as good as bar service, too many waitresses for amount of covers.

Lovely meal but service not that good. Also table layout for event meant that people could not move in and out freely, which is difficult for older people with disabilities.

I am a regular here as the food is great! They have deals on and Thursdays they have 2 steaks for £17.00 and it is worth every penny! Staff are great and the lunchtime menus are great too. Often come here for lunch meetings.
