I attend the Sunday Night Pub Quiz every week and have found the staff to be friendly, food reasonable and cheap for a chain pub - burgers, nachos, fish and chips, baguettes and carvery Sunday lunch.

The food isn't gastropub but service is quick and unlike some places you get what you pay for. Some dishes are better value than others admittedly. The bar has a wide range of draught lager and a wide range of wines including a buy two glasses of wine and get the bottle.

The quiz on Sunday is great, £1 entry per person, max of 6 per team. 4 rounds including a joker round and the chance to win £300 on a higher or lower card game. Well worth going (check it is on if you are reading this in a few months time)

A decent pub, located close to St Peter's Church.
There are loads of TV's positioned around the whole pub, making it a perfect place for watching football or other sporting event. It is large and there is ample seating.
The pub does have a family friendly atmosphere.
The food is typical chain pub food - nothing outstanding, taste is average but it is quite cheap.

We used to love coming here as the Manager and staff always welcomed you, and said a cheery thank you every time you left. You were always recognised and treated as a valued customer, and the Manager was always 'hands on' and very friendly.

In the last few months it has changed, and is now a very impersonal experience just like so many other places. The food has gone from always excellent, to unpredictable quality.

Just not the same any more.

Unfortunately the food was a long time coming and when it arrived the burger was gristly and very processed the waitress Service was a bit slow, for some reason each drink was carried from the bar to our table individually instead of a tray being used which was a bit odd.
The food was eddible but not enjoyeble and over priced I felt. Would not recommend.
Would have preferred wimpy.

On a positive note the Manageress (Misty) was attentive and offered a replacement meal for the disappointing burger meal which i felt was good customer service.
