“A great traditional pub.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

Have been coming to this pub for many years, and have never been let down. Great food and entertainment. Has just been take over by new owners who have kept all the good points of the pub, good entertainment, great bar offering, fantsastic service, and improved on them as well.
Staff are always polite and helpful. Great quiz on a Tuesday night and cabarets at the weekends.

“Okay i suppose!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

Popped in sunday evening to watch the caberet, however, waited several minutes to be served while barman stared into space and was charged £1.10 for a pint of squash which was not unreasonable, later on in the evening was charged £1.25 for half a pint of squash. Clearly no consistancy with pricing and music far too loud late in the evening which spoilt the atmosphere.

Used to come here with my friends after work and sometimes in the evening.

Always have a brilliant welcome and feel welcomed and nothing is ever too much trouble
