“All pubs should be like this”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We were looking for a quick bit to eat before heading back to Nottingham for the evening and were recommended to come here. It did not disappoint and although it was all but packed to gunnels (at 6 pm on a Tuesday evening) we found a small table to fit the three of us and ordered food from both the Pizza and full menus.
Although we were told that these might have differing cooking times the food arrived within 20 minutes and was of excellent quality.
The only problem i have with this pub is that it is too far from home!

“The best pub!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

This is our local so views may be biased! As a modern day pub it can't be beat. Excellent food be it from the Pizza or 'restaurant' menu - best if you're eating to book in the garden room.

Pub and beer garden (in the summer) have an excellent atmosphere and vast selection of booze. They always seem to be one step ahead of future trends! It is busy usually all of the time, but then that's because its good and who wants to go to the pub when its empty?

Don't expect restaurant standards, its always been marketed as a pub and as a pub i haven't been to anything better! - many a family member or friend will testify to the same!

“Fabulous Pizza!”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

This has got to be one of the best places for pizza - and good quality bar food as well. We have been here many times and based on the quality of the food and value for money, its hard to beat. Always difficult to choose what to have, and generally opt for pizza - but half with one topping, and the other half another topping. Have never been disappointed! The other menu is just as good, with the fish & chips being the largest and tastiest fish & chips we've ever had - its actually hard to finish it even for those with a larger appetite. You need to book unless there are only a couple of you when you stand a chance of getting a table in the bar if you wait long enough. The garden room (marquee) and the restaurant are equally as nice and take bookings in advance. Cant wait to go again!

“Fabulous Family Lunch”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We go quite often not living too far away and this occasion like all others never disappoints. There were 13 of us and this number posed no problem in the service we received. The staff are excellent. Polite and efficient. Excellent food in a perfect ambiance. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.
