Nice pub, got served straight away couldn't choose from the daily menu had to have Mother's day menu which didn't have much choice. Order the roast beef which was cold as was served on cold plates but gave us 15% off the bill.

Dog friendly which is good, however we thought the food was over priced for what it was. The bar didn't stock J2O for the children, but offered a substitute, and the toilets need seriously updating. Although a local, we wouldn't rush back.

Many pubs have recently suffered from changes in management and a reduction in customer service. I think it is fair to say the Red Shoot is one of these which has subsequently suffered poor reviews. I would however implore readers to ignore these reviews and visit a pub which is striving, and has achieved, a return to its own high... More

Been coming here for years ( starting to wonder why now !) Always busy and food is ok but needs a good clean . Dogs and muddy boots are welcome so not easy to keep clean I guess , but looking at the carpet it had more life in it than my beer. I feel that the on site micro... More

This is a pub I have been visiting for 30 years. There are many reviews complaining about the decor and quality of food. This week I had the steak, cheddar and chilli pie with fresh vegetables on a bed of mash. My partner had the faggots. Both meals were good for pub food and much better than a lot of... More

We went for Sunday lunch on a very cold day last weekend and were amazed to find both wood burners were not lit and had to keep our coats on at first as quite chilly. When arriving at the bar four staff stood together chatting and we were ignored for as least a minute. The young girl who served us... More
