Took my parents here for Sunday lunch. Nice layout and decor as you would expect from a Fullers pub. Good service. Sunday menu has reduced options from weekday menu. £15 for a roast and £7.35 for a large glass of wine took the shine off...More

Myself and my colleagues have lunched here every day this week and the food has been excellent every day. Traditional English pub feel, great beer, comfortable. I would highly recommend to anyone in the area to pay a visit.

Ordered a beefburger, which turned on a plate with a few chips. Presentation terrible and beef burger very average and paid £13 for the pleasure. Limited menu, not a pub I will be going back to in any hurry for food.

Sorry to hear of your poor experience with us. We are currently looking at the way we plate the food and making some changes along with looking at our value for money so I hope you will return to us in the future.
