“General walk by visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

With living within walking distance we often go for walks and call in here and more often have a bite to eat.
Usually go for the 2 for 1 offers (yep I'm tight!!) but honestly good value tasting food and a good selection on offer, if you sign up to their website you often get a voucher for a free pint with food so another bonus!
As said usually walking visits so I can have a beer or three, usual chain beers on offer at average prices, usually quite busy but not noisy and bursting at the seams.
Always have a pleasant visit here and when leaving having enjoyed our meals.
Don't expect the Ritz but good run of the mill chain pub.

“Very good. .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

I have been once or twice here, always busy and friendly. Food is very good, though the ones when you get free drink not as substantial. Mixed grill great, food is always hot and staff very good. Good value for money.

“Sunday Lunch, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Went for Sunday Lunch.

The staff were very friendly and the food was superbly cooked.

As it was a Bank Holiday weekend they had an entertainer on. he made animal balloons for the kids and did simple card tricks..

All in all a very good lunch. Sunday roast done to perection.

“Good pub friendly welcome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

This a regular meeting place for us good value and typical pub food. Surprised to find a salmon niccoise salad on the menu in the 2 for £8.99. 2 of us decided to have it, looked great when it arrived we were impressed salmon was cooked beautifully however one mouthful of the salad changed my mind on this lovely dish, it was covered in chilly dressing which I hate .... Was advertised as a citrus dressing . It's seems they ran out of citrus and used chilly instead !!! Not a good substitution and we should have been told my friend enjoyed it as they love chilly. As the plates were cleared and I could speak again !! I told the staff of my complaint he listened carefully and checked the menu apologized and refunded the cost of the meal ..... Will double check at time of ordering next time just in case... Cannot fault the way the complaint was dealt with. Well done.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Came here about 6 years ago and the food was lovely so was looking forward to coming again, so came in January 2014 and ordered the Beef and Ale pie,, sadly it was a massive difference to before and was not enjoyable at all and was extremely dry, you only get a tiny bit of gravy,..... not one to moan i thought maybe it was just down to what i ordered, so came back again in April 2014 and never got to try the food as i left with in about 5 minutes of walking in, the staff was all gathered round at the end of the bar, been extremely loud and mimicking/talking/walking as a disabled person with a speech and walk impediment would do, i found this extremely distasteful and unprofessional so left straight away,.... and won't be going back.........!! THINK THEY NEED TO GET SOME RESPECT.
