Nice food. Decor pleasant and clean. Need to review the music choice - quite bland and depressing. Either make the music upbeat and turn it up or don't play the sad background beats.

This came with quite a large portion of chips and a mixed salad. Very full plate. My buddy had the lasagne... More

Called in for a light lunch whilst passing. Staff were young inexperienced girls but friendly. Small selection of decent beers. The menu was limited but interesting. The food was freshly cooked, well served and delicious - compliments to the chef - better than most pubs. Would call again.

The staff were miserable, not one of them cracked a smile. Food was served raw and when I complained the manager was unbelievably rude! Won't be returning here again

We called in for Sunday lunch and decided to have the three course Christmas selection; the food was excellent; hot and tasty. The starter prawn and crab salad was delicious and the bread and butter pudding was the best we have tasted in a very long time, we were even more surprised when we were informed that the apprentice had...

Me and my boyfriend decided to get the grilled goats cheese and the black pudding fritters to start. When the fritters came out i was really suprised how... More
