Never had a bad meal here... Very typical of the chain and brand. Much nicer inside than it ever used to be and far more family orientated now too. Overall a pleasant and comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. Average wait for pub food which is always decent, warm and reasonably priced. Not sure what else people expect from a gastro pub?! ☺

Food took over 1 hour 20 mins and the place was empty. Food was rubbish. Burnt to hell. Bar staff slow and useless. Sorry this place blows.

Me and my family enjoyed a lovely Sunday lunch here. Plenty to choose from and good service. I had the roast beef and would definitely recommend.

They always forget to serve you dessert. The food standard has deteriorated so much that we've given up going there. The serving staff could be more friendly/welcoming.
