I went with three friends for lunch. We had heard various conflicting reports about the service and food but thought we would give it a try ourselves. The decor is pleasing with real fire and variety of sized tables. We all had a sandwich, soup and thick chips from the sandwich menu. All was good- tasty butternut squash soup,lovely sandwiches...

We Visited the 'New' Dunkirk with family and friends the last weekend in November. The refurbishment / décor is excellent and finish done to a very high standard. We found the ambience of the place great, it was playing nice background music and had a good vibe and buzz about it. Yes it was busy but what more could we... More

We were given a table for 2 next to a family with two screaming children. The young lad who said he would be our waiter didn't know what the specials were or if there was enough bread to share on the olives & bread starter. He took the starter & my partners main order & then went to walk away... More

Having seen how much time has been taken doing this place up, my expectations were high. What a disappointment. The cooking here required no chef in the kitchen - just a microwave and a deep fat fryer. By the dessert I'd given up hope. Every single dessert was a culinary cop out - ice cream, crumble, cheese or brownie -... More

... to make a good first impression. I have to say that this review is entirely my own experience and that I went to the restaurant with three others and they found it better than I did - not great, but acceptable. First the food. I ordered a beef sandwich from the light bites menu. When it arrived it had... More

I'd read good things about this place and had looked forward to trying it out. It was very disappointing. The food is straightforward pub grub and perfectly acceptable. The girls behind the bar and waiting on were very pleasant and clearly wanted to do a good job but seemed disorganised and lacking in the necessary skills and training. For example... More

Visited this pub following major refurbishment. Food is still excellent but the waiting staff are new to the role I'm sure they will improve but don't let it put you off. They are really attentive and helpful. I'm sure they will get there. 😄
