Staff polite and helpful, pleasant venue, good and reasonably priced beer, food very disappointing. Went with a dozen others from work last Thursday night, I chose beef as an alternative to Turkey.

I have been to the highwayman several times with my disabled mother. its good for us because the car - table distance is about as short as it is possible to be. I was disapointed the "daily carvery" had been removed and is now only on Wednesdays and Sundays. However this is a Marstons pub and I have been to... More
