Been a few times to catch up with friends and we have usually had a burger and a drink and food has always been fine. Staff friendly and a clean pub

Good place to eat during the week, terrible at the weekends especially Sunday's. Only the second time I have been on a Sunday and it's the second I have had to get a refund on my meals as the waiting times are ridiculous. I don't mind waiting the 45 minutes I was told, but when a party walks in 20... More

My wife and daughter visited this pub a few years ago on their way back from Sheffield and were very impressed by the food, which they described as delicious. Being in the area, and wanting a good lunch, my wife and I found it again, and wished we hadn't. It's a large pub with a good car park, a bit... More

We have been on 3 different occasions and they still haven't improved. The ladies toilets are in need of a good clean so this alone questions the cleanliness of the place if they don't keep these public areas clean. The staff are all really friendly but that doesn't make up for the poor quality of food. The food is bland,... More

We came here a for a birthday meal. There were 9 adults and 7 children. Weather was beautiful so we decided to sit outside in the beer garden. What I liked about our meal was the brilliant service we received. Was quite busy so was suprised at the short waits in between meals. Our waitresses was very friendly and helpful.... More
