Very impressed with the menu but the execution wasn't very good. The starter took half an hour to come out followed by another 45 minute wait for the mains. Could see there was absaloutly no urgency in the kitchen as you could see the waitress stood talking to the chefs through the doors. When the food did come out it... More

Excellent venue, lovely atmosphere, polite friendly staff . There was 7 of us and we all agreed the food was first class and the service very good. We did have a bit of a wait for our food considering it was a week night and wasn't ever so busy.

Friendly staff and good service. The food couldn't be faulted. Reasonably priced. The chips were the best I have had for a long time. Will definitely return.

Good choice of meats st the Bulls carvery. They do three sizes of plate to cover all appetites with as much veg as you can fit on the plate. I would advise you to book on a Sunday as the pub was full, I will be back there soon.

Duly waited where sign said 'wait here'. Waited, and waited and waited for over 5 minutes - that's a long time. Waitresses walked by... More

Woman at bar when taking orders was horrendously rude .. huffing and sighing at everything I said or asked her about from the menu .. you don't feel very welcome in there at all .. had to return my food as tasted off.. very disappointed and will not be returning.
