I didn’t eat but reading a couple of reviews from Canada I find myself writing this.

This is a large (for UK) traditional pub. Pubs don’t seat people generally, you often have to go to the bar (it’s a Brit thing but it creates a social interaction absent with table service IMHO) to order food & drink.

I had a couple of pints here (real ale) and it was very good they had football on TV and a pool table. Not everyone’s cup of tea but I’ve been in most of the pubs around here and this is one of the better ones.

The airport hotels will seat you but they lack atmosphere and aren’t pubs.

Right opposite the Park Inn Hotel, this pub serves good food. We ate here twice before and after our holiday, in preference to paying expensive hotel prices. Nice atmosphere, but busy particularly on a weekend, so get there early if possible. Will definitely eat here next time we stay at the hotel opposite.

You couldn't make it up - this beer, advertising 4 real ales, had run out of real ale on all its pumps when we called in for a longed for beer and meal on the evening of 4 October. When queried, the couldn't-give-a-damn bar staff member shrugged her shoulders and just said they'd run out. We pressed the manager, who had much more about him than his colleague, for a fuller explanation. He said that unfortunately each beer had run out at about the same time and they couldn't replace any of them with existing stocks because the lines must be fully cleaned first, which would take 1.5 hours. What rubbish! How do the many other pubs that we frequent manage to achieve a barrel change quickly and still serve good quality beer, including our own local CAMRA award winning pub back home? Whatever the real reason behind the lack of real ale, it's just not acceptable.

Walking distance to the hotel we stayed at. Cute little pub. A bit confusing as to how to order or where to sit. Our table had not been cleaned yet when we sat down. Ordered the veggie burger with fries. Fries were cold. Burger was a bit soggy. The beer was good. Food not the greatest for the cost.

Visited the pub with family. Expected a good night. No one help us get seated. Table was unclean when we found a place ourselves. Tables were crammed into a space too small for them. Ordered food. It took a good while to come. My beef and ale pie was mostly pastry. I don’t think I’d eat here again.
