Went here for a quick drink after our meal. Really liked the feel of the pub as well as the decor. Seemed like a good mixture between somewhere you could come on a night out and also somewhere you could sit and have a drink...More

Second visit on drop off student day two, with the retail park nearby, liquid refreshment is the best place for me, good atmosphere for a lunch tie, nice staff and good choice of alcohol, well worth a pint.

I am all for giving places another chance just incase they were having an 'off' day but I've now been five times and I think it's safe to say, I will not be returning. A combination of poor burgers, sandwiches, breakfasts. All lacking in flavour...More
