We last came here a year ago or more. Our waitress said the menu is new this week. I was intrigued by the jerk half chicken and it was delicious. Jerk seasoning was tasty without too much chili heat. Sweet potato and spinach curry again...well-spiced but not hot. Rice and peas also well flavoured. Dumplings a little dry, so needed the curry sauce. My partner said her scampi was fine. It's not cheap, but with food this delicious, the price is understandable. We'll be back.More

Was looking for a local place for a family group of 4 and came across this on TripAdvisor and the high score is deserved. Had, Pizzas, burger and fish and chips with deserts. Good was hot, tasty and nicely cooked and served. My daughter wanted...her pizza tweaking from the menu and this was not problem and it came out perfectly. Pub was clean and had plenty of parking. Nice to find a non chain place doing it properly ... 5 stars. Ill be back.More

We have visited the gastro pub restaurant several times this year and the service and food standard is always consistently high. They offer usually 3 substantial sandwiches (hot filled steak, fresh fish fingers) and a good variety of full lunch options and starters. This time...I tried the Arnold Bennett omelette which was a starter with a side salad, and triple cooked chips to share. The omelette was smoked haddock omelette in a cheese sauce with Parmesan. Fresh and delicious. The fresh fried chicken and beef Pattie burger on a brioche bun was loaded with sauce salad relish, side of slaw and skinny fries .. huge .. and delicious. My sister had scampi, crushed mushy peas and triple cooked chips with homemade tartare sauce. Good food freshly cooked. Lovely for special occasions or just a casual lunch. Best to bookMore

We visited here on spec and were very pleasantly surprised. Although the restaurant was very busy, the owner (presumably) managed to squeeze us in. We went straight for a main course, and I had a most delicious meal of haddock, chips and crushed peas, while...my husband selected a pizza topped with bacon, sausage, peppers and black pudding. It was enormous. We were so full, we couldn't manage a dessert. The staff were all very pleasant, the service was speedy and the food piping hot, so we wlll certainly visit here again when next in the area.More

Awful food on Valentines day! One look at the menu and I knew it’ll be rubbish. Cheap, horrible, ‚plastic-fantastic’ tapas, chicken dry and rubber-like, the BBQ pork was a simple piece of pure fat and the panko breaded mushrooms tasted like taken out of an...old tin. The halloumi fries were store-bought (I assume) as they had this unedible and overpowering spice-mixture on them. Absolutely awful! The only tolerable thing on the table was my drink. Therefore, two stars in my review. Never, ever again!More
