We always visit this pub when I stay at my sister's house on Walderslade Road. The pub has been recently refurbished to a good standard. Being a Hungry Horse pub, the menu is varied and has something for everyone with a good choice for kids too. The owners of the pub were very friendly. Food orders were taken by polite staff, and the food did not take long to arrive. The quality of the food was generally very good, although the rare steak I ordered was slightly overcooked and therefore a little tough (but I am fussy). Everyone enjoyed their food and the reasonably priced drinks. A lovely pub to visit and very cheap to eat in.

Recently refurbished. Very good pub food, would recommend the fish and chips. Nice and clean inside with decent facilities. Order yourself according to table number. Going again tonight!

Went in for a quick sandwich and they were very efficient and the sandwiches were really good, however went back the following evening for. Meal and it was not good. The chicken was dry,the steak was gritty and fatty and the pizza was awful. They also omitted to tell us the kitchen closed at 9.30 it took so long to be served that the children missed out on their puddings and were very disappointed including some of the adults that they did not get their desserts. The staff came And apologised but we should have had the table cleared long before we actually did , and then we would have ordered afters. Shame.

Typical Hungry Horse, if you want a burger, steak etc then it does it very well.
Family love it, staff are attentive, decor is cosy since the re-fit, food is good value and better than any harvester!
1 moan.....no matter what time of day u go, SO many tables reserved!
