“Disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

Anyone who has read my reviews will know that I try to be positive. That is now changing. We had an appalling meal at the Windmill before going to the theatre (otherwise we would have created more of a fuss at the time). It consisted of overcooked chicken in a dried up sauce together with overcooked chips. must have been the chefs night off judging by other peoples good comments. My wife wrote to Greene King, on more than one occasion, and I also wrote. To date we have been met with a grand silence. If this is the way they treat their customers they do not deserve to be in business.

“Excellent, obliging service and good food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

Almost literally stumbled upon this place but it was a lucky find. A tricky day as we were meeting up with my wife's parents, who were on a coach tour. Arrived early and bagged a good table. Had starters then needed to wait a while. My in-laws wanted to try lamb shanks and these were on the Specials Menu. One of the staff later came to advise me that they only had 4 of these left and advised that I ordered them right away. This was a good call and a much appreciated tip off. The food itself was well cooked and attractively presented; the beer and wine well kept and served too. As already stated the staff could not have been nicer and more helpful. Would recommend thoroughly

“Perfect Pub for Town Centre Pub Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

Popped in for lunch with friends - who are both fairly regulars of this quaint, charming little pub, just a short stroll from the town centre.
Amazing deals on the much thought out menu, everything prepared by a chef who really cares.
I chose fish finger (home made goujons) sandwich, accompanied by vitality salad (watch out for the fresh chilli kick!) washed down with a perfectly chilled glass of rosé - all for £5.95!
We shared the pudding platter, which was heaven on a plate - and I don't even have a sweet tooth!
Will definitely return very soon, especially as the service was so warm and welcoming too.

“Great food, atmospheric pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

We found this place looking for somewhere we could eat with our 2 dogs, and the small courtyard fitted the bill nicely. The food on the surface was traditional pub grub but on closer inspection everything had a nice little twist, there were several things that caught the eye and it took me a while to choose. I had the gourmet burger with truffle mayo and my husband had the Parmesan chicken schnitzel burger, both came in glossy brown topped almost brioche like buns which were delicious. The highlight for me was the tarte tatin though, I've had far worse in fine dining restaurants and as part of a 2 for £5 dessert deal, also stunning value. Well worth seeking out, oh, and the rose wine was also lovely!
