“Eclectic music night!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Visited here last night for a few drinks and and stayed much longer because the music was so good. Couple of guitars playing some interesting stuff and a great young girl singer. Professional quality flute player ( I know she is an orchestral performer) and a good trumpet. Apparently they have this every Friday night. Food looks good though we didn't eat and the cocktail list is interesting. Also serves lager and cider, with some bottled beers and Guinness (surger).

“Mediocre”
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

Visited early on a Friday night - we were the only people there to start with until a few more trickled in. Menu looked OK, mainly burgers, steaks etc. Specials more appealing so we chose Salmon and Steak Pie.
Both were very dry and we had to request gravy for the pie and butter to lubricate the salmon. We were told off by the proprietor for using the cutlery on the table for our starters (which came with a small fork only)meaning he had to bring more for our mains.
Service was ok but rather indifferent and inattentive. Live music which was a bit amateur - the two musicians didn't seem to have practised together much. Won't be going back.

“Friendly welcoming and good freshly cooked food”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

Just been for a special meal for a birthday, as always with this bar and grill, a extremely friendly and welcoming environment, fast service, fantastic freshly cooked food to order to what you want. Nothing is too much trouble, love coming here and beats a chain restaurant any day! Nice to put money into honest peoples pockets!

“Oh my god!”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

What can we say, looked up on trip advisor for a nice place to eat and this showed up on the searches, thought we would give it a go. Thoroughly recommend to anyone that likes places like harvester or outback. Steak was melt in the mouth and if your feeling hungry, you have to try the rack of ribs. Really enjoyed ourselves and will pass this place on to friends and family to make sure they eat here! Really friendly environment and great service, really good value for money.
