This was the ideal pub to have lunch in on the way to Darlington hospital. My husband and I got here about 12:15 and it was quite - I don't think the heavy rain would have helped. As it's part of a chain and having eaten at a few of these pubs and not been too impressed, it was a... More

we have eaten here quite been times, as it is only about a mile from where we live, food is good, pretty fast service, and staff are very helpful, can get quite busy especially at weekends, and kids holidays though.

Visited on a number of occasions and the difference between the staff is unreal. Depending on the staff it can either be great or utter ####. It's a regular chain pub with your usual menu and decor, clean and tidy, but could do with a bit of a spruce up.

Fairly typical chain pub fayre. Reasonable portions and nicely cooked. Slight problem with the pricing however. Prices are all pretty high on the basis that the meals are 2 for the price of 1. this works ok if your party is an even number but odd numbers are clearly penalised. We were a group of 3, so say no more.

Went for lunch, with my family and must admit, when I saw the prices, I thought it was expensive, but then when I realised it was buy one get one free, my mind changed, and I realised it was great value for money. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially as I had my elderly grandma with me. The... More

Wednesday lunch of tender and perfectly cooked lamb chops - one medium and one well done. Standard decor, reasonable menu and drinks list. Convenient location just off A1, which we were looking for on way down from Edinburgh to Midlands. Plenty of parking on new estate.

Thank RMartinL101
