Quite simply fantastic. Traditional pub setting, helpful and friendly staff lots of tasty buffet style food (the chunky chips are amazing ) The whole experience was uplifting at a difficult time. I would highly recommend this little gem to anyone who loves a proper pub with restaurant quality food.

Enjoyed a fantastic 3 course Sunday lunch. The roast beef melted in the mouth and was accompanied with a great range of fresh vegetables. Starters were also very good and desert was also to die for. Would really recommend it for a visit. The range of real ale on at the bar downstairs adds to the visit.

Went in this pub with a group of people from work. We pre-ordered food. I had ordered fish and chips and it was the worst i had ever tasted. It came wrapped in paper and had obviously stood for a while because all the batter was steamed off the fish! the fish itself was undercooked. I sent it back and... More

This pub has again astonished me by the quality of food that we received this afternoon for the amazing price of 2 courses for £5.50. How it can do this level of culinary delights for this price still eludes me. We will be returning again soon.

Decided to try this restaurant after a friend recommended it. We ate early so we were the only ones in. Didn't wait long for our food and when it arrived the portions were very generous. The food was really good and the choice was great. If you are looking for traditional meals then this is a good place to try.... More

One of the best roast dinners I've ever had. Apparently deserts are good too but I was too full up to try one.

Four friends visited the Duke William restaurant - upstairs from the pub at 7pm on a Friday night. We were served promptly - not surprising because at 7pm on a Friday night we were the only people in there. Food was excellent and portion sizes generous -although extra chips were provided at no charge. Really enjoyed the meal, steak and... More
