Our meal was a treat from a relative so we did not make any negative comments to our waitress at the time, particularly since the service was excellent. After a very good starter course (outstanding prawn and lobster cocktail) our main course was very disappointing. Two of us had rump steak and they were tough as old boots. I could... More

I love this local pub, been there many times over the years to have a meal. So to celebrate my daughters birthday with the family thought it would be great. Starters were fine, but that's it. They bought my daughters steak out with COLD pepper sauce, my son had fish which he had a couple of mouthfuls of and didn't... More

Started well, services seems to have improved since the re launch but the food really has gone downhill. Starters were fine but the main courses were far from that. We both had burgers which we assume we're frozen and once cooked turned hard and dry. One of us managed one bit and the other half of the burger. We were... More

We went for lunch one Tuesday. Three of us plus little Teddy the dog. Nice to see a busy pub doing a good lunch time trade. Good mix of all ages seeming to have a good time. Staff busy but had time to be polite and attentive to our needs. Food arrived in good time and just as ordered. My... More

Been back twice since the latest change of management and the 'refurbishment'. A lick of paint has spruced it up a bit, but it's not exactly a transformation, but at least they haven't ruined it by 'modernising' it. The much heralded new menu is disappointing, it has basically cut out 60% of what used to be there - the accountants... More

Came here on a Friday night with my partner. The atmosphere was pleasant and the restaurant was clean. Once we were seated the drinks took a while to arrive and unfortunately that was how the service was all night. Everything took ages to arrive, I don't think it has ever taken that long to have a three course meal before.... More

Myself and my fella went for a valentines evening meal, we waited about 10 minutes for a bottle of wine to be brought to the table, when it did arrive it was left on the table for us to pour ourselves.

Reading last couple reviews didn't make this restaurant sound good, but obviously just wrong! I had fish and chips, service was great and fast and as I observed other tables order food it was also quick and customers sitting near me was too delighted.
