Visited this pub today, 25/5/2017. Found a table, it was about 1-30pm. Ordered our food and drinks at the bar, about to pay, and a member of staff announced that no food orders were being taken because "it has all kicked off in the kitchen"....More

Not bad for first visit. We had burgers from main menu via the app. Good service. Quick service considering it was hard to find a table. Will visit again.

We always use this pub for steak nights and curry nights when in the area and have always found the food - and coffees - to be consistent. The staff are friendly and the food is always hot and excellent value for money.

After a bad experience in a pub down the road we came across this pub and were glad we did. Had some lovely food and a nice drink before our evening out at the white rock theatre. Good food, good value for money.

Typical large Wetherspoon, cheap alcohol, decent value for money food and clean toilets. Pity the prices rise on Bank Holiday Monday.
