“Great little pub with good food”
Reviewed 27 November 2013 via mobile

We come here often as work close by. The food is typical pub food, it's cooked well and they always have a variety on the menu. I had the pulled pork sandwich which was delicious. Service was good, quick to bring food out. Atmosphere was good, pretty busy for a Monday lunch time.

“Worst service I've experienced in years”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

The service in this pub was awful. Rude, arrogant, superior, and sulky... Just dreadful.

The food wasn't great either. Pork scratchings lacked any flavour at all and the apple source tasted like baby food. The smoked mackerel pate was good. The burgers were dry and in rather stale brioche style buns that looked good but were clearly a few days old. The steak so grisly one was inedible and had to be sent back.

A huge TV screen was left on with advertisements for their Christmas dinner showing all night. This rather spoilt the atmosphere in what was otherwise a very nicely done up pub.

There was no loo roll in the loos, they were rather messy and clearly no one was checking them on a busy Saturday night. They were however not unhygienic, just lacking in a good tidy up.

“A very good example of it's kind”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

Good food, decent service, good rooms and outdoor space and a decent selection of ales. Some very charming staff and prices that don't make you think twice.

“Good for ambiance.”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Excellent local pub. No frills, good atmosphere, busy, mostly young clientelle but good tolerance towards the older customers too.
We were able to order one meal with two sets of cutlery without a raised eyebrow to be seen ! Would definitely revisit.

“Casual setting, hearty food”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

I've eaten here many times.

Can be crowded and very noisy, so not really recommended for a date night, but it's a great spot for hanging out with friends for a beer. Also good for curling up with the Sunday papers and a Sunday roast.

Not the fanciest spot, but comfortable, and the service is usually good. If you're an American ex-pat looking for a good hamburger, then try the Woolpack burger.
