Fast service with a smile, good tasty pub grub and reasonable prices. I had the chicken burger and my husband had the roast beef. Would definitely return. The blonde lady who was serving was really bubbly and nice.

I had the prawn stirfry at the waitress's suggestion, but it was rather tasteless and plain. Hubby was happy with the two sandwiches he ordered. (I know, crazy guy opted for a second sandwich instead of a side). The brownie dessert was served warm with ice cream and it did redeem the meal.

Nice atmosphere during the week but very raucous hen parties at weekends. Limited choice but we'll cooked food. Good value.

Went here last because we had a meal voucher, thank god we didn't have to pay for the food! I had the jack Daniels ribs for starter, they were bland and came with this awful bread thing on the side, had absolutely no taste and was doughy. For the main course I got the chicken curry, the sauce was okay... More

A good choice of food on menu. Freshly prepared and hot when served. Delicious lasagne and chunky chips!

We enjoyed a few drinks in the met bar during our overnight stay at the hotel. The bar staff and very friendly and no there stuff when it comes to the drinks. Highly recommend the mojito :) No live music or anything in the bar when we were there so there is not much atmosphere there but great if you... More
