I wouldn't go here again. It's a great location for a good pub but needs more love and care! Used to be very good 5 years ago. Let's hope the refurb and rebrand improves it

We went there yesterday to celebrate a very special birthday for a very special friend who is no longer with us. From 4pm onwards the tills were not working and the staff (who were brilliant) used their initiative and did everything manually i.e writing orders down and the cost of each round. However, the evil manageress started to tell them... More

I know you get what you pay for but a recent spur of the moment visit and an impromptu Sunday roast was disappointing for the simple reason that it tasted utterly bland. I've never really had a roast quite like it. Peas? Tasteless. Carrots? Tasteless. Parsnips? Tasteless. Roast Potatoes? Tasteless. Meat? Tasteless. Even the gravy! The staff were really nice... More

not sure how this pub can still be in business. the food has to be the worst I've ever tasted. roast dinner, beef over cooked and tough, veg (carrots, peas and beans) were under cooked, hard and totally tasteless. could be such a vibrant pub but serving food like this they're never going to get much custom. should have guessed...

The bar here has no atmosphere the place needs a shot of adrenaline to improve the atmosphere its very dull, and the service is painfully slow, certiainly not hurrying back..
