We visited our local pub for Sunday lunch, we were not expecting anything great as we've been to places locally for lunch and have always been disappointed. We ordered our roast beef and pork dinners, food was served promptly with plenty of veg on the side. It was the best roast dinner out in a long time, it more than... More

Ate lunch here today, had a brie and bacon burger. chips were great, burger was fantastic. Menu looks very good will return to try other dishes. Service was friendly and welcoming, in a nice relaxed setting. Food was priced well and very cheap for the quality received.

The pub is under new ownership and have refurbished and re-opened the kitchen! We ate in there on Saturday and the food was brilliant, so reasonably priced and the staff were brilliant! Great to see a lovely local pub back to its best!

Unfortunately the restaurant is closed and has been for a while which is a pity. Its still worth a visit though as it is a friendly well kept pub, great staff and the beer is well presented

Friendly local pub, reasonable choice of real ale for me & friendly staff. Excellent food & well priced. Would recommend if staying at the Ramada which is 5 minutes walk away.

Years ago the Archer had a reputation for being a bit rough so it's a place we avoided, however we kept hearing great reviews so decided to give it a go. We were pleasantly surprised, the decor was clean bright and bistro like and the food was superb, the menu was extensive, I had a bbq chicken pizza which was... More

Popped in for a child free lunch. Just turned 12, so very quiet. Met by a very friendly bar lady and shown into the restaurant. Had a great starter, followed by an equally great main. Would have had a desert, but way too full. An excellent meal, with a very decent bill to boot. Highly recommended...

Thank Gary P
