I can tell you that there are NO chef's in this establishment as the food was horrible. After waiting for what seemed an eternity the soggy fat drenched fish & chips arrived and was inedible. Beer out of the tap tasted as though the lines hadn't been cleaned this century. Definitely eat elsewhere.

After being seated downstairs for about half an hour and having drinks. As we tried to order they told us we couldn't order downstairs after serving the person in front of me.

This was the most unhelpful and worst experience I've ever had in a restaurant or pub. We waited an hour and a half for a table and was told it was bad luck even though we had tried to book and they said just come in. The food was horrible and took a long period of time. There was a... More

Dropped into the bar for a few Great Northerns when on a family holiday, when the boys sent to the shops. Good for a punt and a pot.

Went to the pub to watch the footy and have a meal on Saturday night. I had been earlier in the year and promised not to go back as food was not good and staff were indifferent to my complaint. Still against my word tried it again. How bad can this pub get?. Ordered classic Chicken Parma - chicken been... More

On a cold windy night in July I wandered in for dinner. Service was a little better than average but food was standard pub grub. I am sure it would be fine for going out for a quick feed and some drinks. It's a sports bar.
