I was a bit concerned about taking the family for lunch especially after reading a couple of the recent reviews but thought I would take a chance anyway! In fairness the place was quite quiet and relatively empty which did emphasize that the decor is a little tired. However we were seated and served in less than 15 minutes and the food was pretty good home cooked quality. The beef was succulent and tasty and my son cleared his pork dinner with aplomb which is pretty unusual! If one was to be picky I could have done with a little more gravy (although I didn't ask) and the roasties were of a reasonable quality but were of the frozen variety.
Overall it wasn't posh but for the price it represented good value for money and I would go again.

Absolutely disgusting. We waited 1 hour 40 and it was freezing cold on arrival. The meat was very fatty and the rest of the dinner had zero taste. Do not waste your money.

DO NOT VISIT
wow where do I start. The staff behind the bar are so rude. One young man especially ( no name badge ) food order came out wrong and they were not happy when I told them so. Got my drinks order wrong and over charged me. The place was messy, tables hadnt been cleaned. Staff were stood talking to each other instead of helping customers and there were a group of young males in there who were clearly off their heads on drugs. Nice eh!

Visited the Pub for a spot of lunch! The food was pleasant enough and the staff were friendly, but the whole place looks very run down and a bit scruffy which lets the pub down! The menus were ripped and dirty and the seats we sat on were ripped and covered in filth! A bit of TLC and this could be a nice place to eat! But the appearance at the moment is run down and a little off putting!
