Perfectly placed but the food was appalling, one member of our party left their full meal (burger) as the meat was so dry and tasted vile. We also had chicken which was clearly reheated in a microwave as it had a dry rubbery consistency. This...More

It was ok pub feeling resturant, nothing spectacular, but if you would like a bite of food cheaply (around £10) then this is the place. Not the best or the worst but fine if you want food.

Good choice and service very good. Wouldn't recommend lasagne tasted like the frozen bristol one from asda but mixed grill very good and good choice of beers.

Nice pub in a good area nice inside and we went for a meal that evening which was very good we were lucky to get a table so maybe it might be better to book if it's at the weekend.

Nothing better than sitting in the beer garden enjoying a cold one with friends and family then a light lunch of flat bread and chips.

We had an evening Sunday roast - the Trio roast was excellent. So much meat I asked for a 'doggy bag' which they were more than happy to accommodate, and we do have big appetites! The service was quicker than we expected as they were...More

Its not what you'd call top quality, but then the prices are pretty low too. Service was efficient, although while we were there there was a long queue for ordering - we timed it right I think. The beer was OK but not the best.

The car park is for residents only and there is enough spaces for the amount of rooms. We arrived early and gave our registration number to one of the staff and were allowed to park there until we left.
