Ok, so it looks better than it did, but that’s called a quick lick of paint and some wall art.

And the menu is different, non of that 241 malarky, so it’s now it’s normal pub prices eg burgers £6-9, steaks £10 +. However, the cooking is no better than it was.

It’s just another chain pub with imported food to be heated, not cooked.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your review.

I'm so disappointed that you weren't impressed with our refurb, there was indeed a very generous "lick of paint" and some new wall art, as well as some structural work, new hard wood flooring and carpets throughout, new lighting, works completed to the garden, new furniture, and the addition of our amazing open plan pizza kitchen.

And such a shame that the 9 days of intensive training on how to care for, store, season, grill (on our new chargrill), rest and serve our new range of fresh 35 day matured beef steaks, and the hand stretched cooked to order pizzas seem to have gone unnoticed on this visit.

We are quite rightly a chain pub, with the customer experience at the very core of everything we do and am sorry if this didn't come across on this particular visit

Again, thanks for the feedback, it really is invaluable to us as we continually strive to better ourselves, our offerings, our service, and our awesome value for money.

We hope we can welcome you again

Was a tad worried about this refurb as we used it a lot previously for family meals being a buy one free venue with large veer garden. We'll we visited as a couple leaving the kids with their uncle. The place is much improved and has a nice relaxed adult atmosphere. The menu is varied without too many choices and I personally love the fact all pizza toppings are available in all crust types especially calzone. The food was presented in slate and looked fabulous. It was beautiful fresh food and really tasty. The garlic fries are a must. We stuffed out on pizza so never got to the dessert. We must also mention the waitress Kaz. She was phenomenal. Friendly, attentive, warm without being intrusive. We live the new refurbishment and will be regulars. Oh and thanks for Peroni too

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave your review

Glad you enjoyed the visit and love the food and refurb as much as we do!

We o take away desserts too if next time you're full? I fully recommend the salted caramel dough balls! Great just warmed through in the oven or microwave when you get home!!

I will be sure to let Kaz know you're feedback too, we all think she's phenomenal too, and she's only been working on the floor a week!!!

Look forward to welcoming you again soon and thanks for helping #SPREADtheword

Decided to pop in for a bite to eat as didn't fancy cooking, walked in and what a surprise. A fantastic refurb, new menu and even a fresh pizza cooking station. No more 2 for 1 deals which the very lovely lady explained to us as she briefly went through the new menu with us. We chose the bacon and brie dough balls to share as a starter and they were absolutely delicious. Asked for some cranberry to have with them and it was no problem. Both had a burger for main and neither of us could quite finish it. I only wish I had room for a dessert. Served by Catherine who dealt with us perfectly and had a very good knowledge of the menu. 3 alcoholic drinks and the bill was less than £35, proving you can get quality and quantity without paying over the top prices. Great improvement guys!!
