Here you get what you pay for. Two meals for £12. Really good value. The staff are friendly. If like us you have dogs, they are welcome to join you in the pub which is a bonus.

From the outside this tavern looks nice and we decided to go in and give it a try. Drinks were served promptly and the waitress was very friendly. We had a look at the menu and decided on the offer of two main courses for £12. We liked the sound of the smothered breast of chicken with bacon and peppercorn sauce with garlic bread and chips.
When it came we should just have sent it back ,yes I know, however we decided to try it. A huge big oversized chicken breast served in a sur le plat with garlic bread thrown on top. All the cheese came off with it when it was lifted off. Very little sauce on the bottom of the dish and the first time I have ever seen a slice of bacon served underneath the lot. The chicken was of the cheapest quality and I think it was probably frozen and had no texture whatsoever to it. The salad was a joke. Iceberg lettuce with a couple of bits of chopped pepper and a couple of bits of red onion. Should have sent it back but wont return or recommend

Wasn't hunting for food but popped in for a quick drink and feed our 10 month old son. We seen and had the slightest whiff of the food coming out to other tables and instantly felt like I had never eaten before. Ordered from the 2 for £12 menu (you read that correctly), which we thought was impressive in a largely overpriced area. Super food, super service and an absolute dream of a pint of San Miguel. Recommend to anyone in the area *****
