We visited as a group of 7 for drinks and food. Service was great, friendly bar staff and no wait at all for food. The rump steak was cooked to perfection with a fluffy jacket potato. I will definitely be back when I am in...More

Angus steak was okay but lot of fat and gristle but cooked correctly (medium). Food was warm not hot but 3 for £10 starters were excellent. Desert (knickerbocker glory) was melted to milk when it arrived and replacement was not much better.

We have visited the pub on several occasions and enjoyed food and good service every time. Slightly intrigued by the ghostly feeling in the female toilets. Experienced on separate occasions by different family members. Would definitely recommend a visit.

This is a Weatherspoon's pub and can be relied upon. We had lunch here. There is a wide variety of ales and other drinks and the menu is extensive. The portions are good sized and the service is quick. Excellent!

Lunch today of fish, chips and mushy peas. Excellent service and really good meal. Thank you! This place has really picked up in the last year and so pleased to rate it as our favorite 'local' once again. Well done!

Reasonable prices and served quickly. Food was good and so was the service. We sat outside as the sun was shining, lots of seagulls around the tables. Beer was good value (so dad said).

Hi, thanks for your review. Glad to see we delivered on value and price. The seagulls... I hope they weren't too pesky, we have done as much bird proofing as we can. We look forward to seeing you again soon

Fancyed a day out so caught the bus and the bus stop was nearly opposite, as ever quite busy but quickly served. The meal I ordered later was as ever fine. Good value and will continue my ephoc trial to visit as many Weatherspoon's
