Just awful. From start to finish. Slow at the bar, got the order wrong. See from the website that it's under new ownership. Won't be around for long at this rate.

First my drink didn't arrive then my daughter's meal hadn't been rung up - both mistakes by the dopey bar girl. Worst of all was the attitude of the pub manager, who showed us our receipt for "what we'd ordered" and said he could not...More

Thank you for your review although a little harsh, do you really imagine that we wanted the soft drinks gun to go faulty on the best day of the year so far? We then had to obtain supplies of soft drinks from local suppliers, not...More

I re-iterate my response to the previous complainant from the same party. We all know the reason for your issues was the fact that you took things for granted without making clear your desires before the booking. As I stated before the food was served...More

Amazing! Food was of good quality and came out in good timing even with it being busy. Staff made you feel welcome especially on younger male member of staff who had a laugh with us. Enjoyable evening would defiantly go back again.

It's similar to the old menu but worth noting hat the service has "Dropped Off" a bit so don't go there if you are tight on time
