We stopped here for a late lunch. The staff was very friendly, the menu was just the right size for pub-grub, not too large, and not too small. They also had specials to choose from. We were a party of five, and all were pleased with their food and drink choices. The pub from the road appears small, but once inside it is fairly large with plenty of seating choices, both in the bar and dining areas. Would definitely return for another visit! Prices were reasonable.

The barman took all the good out of what would have been a very pleasant visit. We were just calling in to have Sunday lunch and should have walked out from the moment we walked in the door - this middle aged barman with greased back hair was rude, sarcastic and unwelcoming. He behaved as if he owned the place and treated us as though we were a huge inconvenience to him (which is surprising as the place was almost empty in what should be prime time on for Sunday dinner time). Would have stayed for drinks but left as soon as we ate our poorly prepared food due to the poor treatment we received from this one member of staff

I can safely say it was the worst service we ever experienced. The bar man was very rude, sarcastic and ignorant. Food was to a poor standard, the pizza was not freshly made. Unaccommodating and unhelpful staff, they never checked in on the table once after serving the food.

Literally the worst pizza I’ve ever had in my life with terrible service on the side. The pizza was definitely a frozen one. Dirty glasses and all!
