“Great staff, food could be better”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

1st walking into this pub the staff were very welcoming and were all night...HOWEVER the steaks tasted and looked like they were microwaved!! I know it saves time but minor details like cooking steak fresh will bring customers back!!

“Could be better ”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

I ate here three days on the run for breakfast and lunch while staying at the Premier Inn next door.
Breakfast- after two days I stopped eating the cooked breakfast as it was nasty to be honest! My poached eggs were served swimming in half an inch of water, and my scrambled eggs I asked for came an oversized plate of powered egg! YUK
So I stuck to the toast and cereal.
Lunch- was actually not bad, the bargain £4.99 lunch box was good.
Nice sandwich on brown bread served with chips and a drink.
Most of the staff are bubbly and polite beside the young blonde lady at breakfast that desperately needed some customer care training. I nearly choked when she approached an American man asking 'do you want a cooked breakfast' without no good morning, can I get you, come on! Have a bit of respect for your work!

“Wonderful staff and food”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

The food was lovely and good value for the money and beer prices were reasonable. Plenty room in the garden for the little ones to run around, and a good place to meet up with family since we were staying next door at Premier Inn

“Cheap and cheerful”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

It's at the end Of Weedon Road where I was born a long time ago. We stopped by to take a look at the old house, parking the car in the Horse and Jockey lot and returning there for a spot of lunch. The whole area is not at the top end of town but the pub was busy, the staff cheerful and the atmosphere friendly. We couldn't really complain at all. It was basic pub fare that came with a smile and a laugh. Who could ask for anything more?
