Went for a meal here today. Ordered fish and chips from the main menu, not the lunch time menu. Was very disappointed and wouldn't return. Fish was placed on top of the chips and the grease was driping on the plate and all over the chips, which spoilt them. When we opened the fish there was approx 4 inches of... More

I used this place to eat after spending all day looking after my sick son in hospital. They serve food until 10pm. They offer a set 2 or 3 course meal and for the 2 courses it worked at at less than £9. The food was of a very good standard and the beer was very reasonably priced. Good atmosphere... More

Fairly large refurbished local pub. Can be quite busy and service often lacking. Good range of meals which are OK but not outstanding. Selection of real ales. Lacks any kind of personal welcome or attraction.
