“Good value pub”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

Had yet another visit and was not disappointed by the meal which was good value. Looking at some reports not sure what is expected as for the price the food is always good. In the summer there is a great sun trap of a garden which is not available elsewhere in the town centre. If looking for good selection of draught beer and good range of affordable food I would recommend a visit.

“Manager rude, food like cardboard :(”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

It's cheap but steak was not edible - more like a lump of cardboard. Manager was abrupt & rude. But bar staff were lovely.

“Not great”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

Went as part of a group. Can't comment on the standard of the other meals but they didn't look great. Our meals were pre ordered and my husband and I had asked for the pie and mash but had asked for chips instead of mash. When the meals came we had been given mash which was instant - disgusting. The pie had obviously been reheated as the pastry was hard and the filling had dried out. The meat was gristly. The nicest thing on that plate were the peas. Won't be going back. Oh and the people serving the food had faces like slapped backsides. The bar staff were pleasant though.

“Fair value”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

If you are looking for bistro food, you are in the wrong place but if you don't fancy cooking, if you are with a few friends and want a bite to eat and a drink at a reasonable price then this is it!
No vinaigrette and you have to pay extra for BBQ sauce but there aren't many places in those hard times where you can eat for under a tenner!

“Alright depending on what you order”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

I've been to this place a fair few times for food and haven't, as yet, had the bad experience that other reviewers have had. We tend to order the steaks, burgers, mixed grills and the scampi, which have all been ok. There have been occasions when the burgers have clearly been put straight into the bun from the grill and are swimming in grease, however.
The service is ok - the bar staff have to contend with busy periods during which the landlord will absolutely never help out, preferring instead to chat with his friends! This might be why bar service hasn't been great for some - if the landlord supported his staff then reviews might be better.
