My Parents went to the Island Pool last week and enjoyed an excellent meal. They came away very pleased. This is the second time they have been.

Great value breakfast Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings. Visited on several occasions with family and really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and ample portions. You pay for your first cuppa and then free fill ups.

We were regulars in this place but have not been in there for a year now. As it was Christmas we took my sister in here for a meal. I think the place has changed hands since the last time we were in there as we didn't see any staff that we recognised. The food was OK portion size for... More

Packed, it was Saturday, birthday parties and Xmas parties. We were the last to get a table, 3 adults, a 6 year old and a messy 1 year old, real ale, Enville Ale was perfect. Been here several times, never let down.

My husband, daughter and I visited here on a Tuesday evening. It was moderately busy however, there aren't many tables in this establishment. We weren't greeted at the door - we had to wait around 10 minutes before being served as we eventually went up to the bar. The customer service at the bar was horrendous, we were served by... More
