“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

We popped in here for some cheap & cheerful food & decided on the 'beer & burger' option - I always choose the chicken breast burger option & my other half opted for a gourmet burger. I have to say that the chicken burger was one of the best I have had - the chicken breast was huge & not dry or over cooked, the gourmet burger (classic with blue cheese) was enormous & very tasty - we both had a pint (cider & Bitter) and were very happy with our £12 bill! It was a pleasant surprise. As we were there around 5.00pm it was reasonably quiet & we didn't have a long wait although it was fairly busy by the time we left - the staff were friendly & we couldn't fault it.

“A good stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

We enjoyed our dinner here...chicken Caesar salad and beer. The staff are efficient and the food is good. It was busy when we got here then evened out after awhile. We would definitely eat here again.

“An honest suprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Visited multiple times, staff is always very polite, food is never a letdown (best value for money around). Would definitely recommend going for a curry night. Nice atmosphere, no loud music but the place does get busy.
