Great choice of specials. Friendly staff serving. Reasonable food for a marstons chain pub. The service was quite slow but we visited midweek and it was surprisingly busy.

On FRIDAY WE HAD A TOTAL OF 16 for a Birthday event and were well catered for, excellent food, served by amazing staff and all meals were hot and very nice. One was changed because the steak was tough without so much as a moan.
