Food was really poor quality, no flavour, all frozen nasty cheap stuff. Left most of mine it was that bad. Shame as this place used to be packed out. On a positive - friendly staff behind the bar, chatty and sincere.

Went recently with some friends and found the staff very friendly and the venue fine. Unfortunately the food and waiting time for it needs improvement, if this is addressed then the Pageant can be a place to visit again.More

Nice new owners, friendly and welcoming. Haven't eaten a meal yet but tried a couple of fries and they were perfection. We will be going to eat next week.
