Went for my Dads birthday! First time and wont be the last. It was bloody lovely and we all thoroughly enjoyed it Corned beef patties and calamari for starters Parmo, roast chicken, silverside beef and mixed grill kebab for mains- we were stuffed to the...brim!! To top it off the chips are REAL chips! Got to judge a place based on its chip game and this place is on point Already planning to go back!!More

Did a walk in on a Friday night, staff very friendly, lovely place, very nice inside. My wife and I both had vegetable soup for starter, I'm not a huge soup liver, but got it for a change and was pleasantly surprised. For mains I...had the Sreak and Ale Pie, it was delicious, it comes with chips, mushy peas and gravy all of which were also delicious. The steak in the pie was perfect, although for me it could have been a little bit bigger, but I am a big eater. My wife had the Sea Bass, which seams to be her go to choice currently, she said it was the best she's had in this country, it came with new potatoes and vegetables which were done to perfection. We both had desserts, which is unusual for us, the Red Velvet Cake was very good and I'm told the Apple Crumble was amazing. Overall a very pleasant meal, in nice surroundings, with very good friendly staff, would definitely recommend.More

Visited here lots of times! Had a lovely meal here last week, the service was brilliant! We sat in the new garden room which has a great atmosphere and view. We both had the hanging kebabs which were amazing! I had a chocolate brownie and...my husband had bread and butter pudding, they both delicious. Looking forward to our next visit...thank you!More

Lovely warm welcome for myself husband and our 2 dogs. A wonderful pint and a scrumptious Sunday dinner freshly prepared with lovely crisp vegetables and melt in your mouth meat. Best Sunday dinner we have had out in a long time… well done!

Loved this place so much we went back again the next night! Lovely atmosphere and a huge menu……which is normally not a great thing as most places struggle to do a lot of dishes well. Not the case here. Everything we had on both nights...was cooked to perfection. On the second night we messed up and ordered a dish we thought was vegetarian but was in fact chicken. Completely our mistake but the staff could not have been more accommodating - alternative dish provided and on the table within 5 minutes. The staff and manager even checked again if everything was okay after bringing out the replacement…..even though the original error was entirely ours. Customer service at its best. Great food, brilliant service, lovely atmosphere, well priced - I just wish we didn’t live at the other end of the country!More

My family and I came for a nice dinner but all tables were booked. We were given a table outside which was nice and then were given menus and a heater near us (which was done specially for us). We were eventually eating after a...short time and the food was incredible,cheap and the portions were large. The waiters and staff also went out of their way in rush hour to help us. Overall great place, would gladly come again.More

Fantastic food in pleasant surroundings. We are a family of five, who all had different meals, but each one was fantastic.

Lovely food and prompt friendly service. Staff made us welcome even though we arrived late for our table. Chef stayed specially to prepare our desserts - very much above and beyond call of duty. Thank you, chef!

My wife and i called for a lunch at this ph and found it to be excellent quality and value.We both took a table outside as it was a lovely day and ordered flatbreads off the lunchtime menu with a side order of onion rings...and a couple of drinks.The food came after about 20/25 mins and was absolutely lovely with no complaints about any of the food.Real chips and proper onion rings are the business!!The svc was very good from the two ladies working the outside tables.The bill came to £27 and will return sometime.Highly recommend what we had.More
