Atmosphere a bit of a small town pub, but food good. Interesting location, trust a local place, been there longer than I have and I've lived here over 25 years.

Well, it is not the greatest, but edible if your not picky. We ordered Shrimp/fries basket, Veggie Burger, Cajun Chicken wrap and Stuffed Yorkshire. As a vegetarian, I did not read any beef in the menu, and asked if the gravy has meat broth, Tanya...More

This is my local pub if you can call it that. It is absolutely disgusting. The clientele are grungy and rude as are the staff. The food is deplorable. Over cooked, microwaved cheap fast food. Not a place to go for a fun night out....More

Wasn't impressed with service last visit as I couldn't get any. Both my friend and I asked several servers for drinks and we were completely ignored and it wasn't even busy. I'm also a local, and won't be going back anytime soon.
