Today the tandem reopened after a 2 week refurbishment. The refurbishment consisted of takeing away anything to do with children unfortunately, no more climbing frame and no more toy/arcade machines. Utterly disappointing as this place was our local family friendly pub/restaurant

Poor service. Unhappy staff. Quality of food was poor too. This is not the first time this glhas happened but thought it was a one off. Sausages were hard amd more like a cocktail sausage than a normal pork sausage.

Yes but the garden is closed at the moment. Usually lots of children running about so may not be the best place for 4 dogs.
