“Ok with pleasant gardens”
Reviewed 7 November 2011

A cheap and cheerful Marston's 2 for 1, with typical pub-grub menu changed twice a year. We've eaten here a few times but the experience depends on how busy it is and who serves you. The wines are good, mains are ok, but veg portions are invariably boiled for what seems like hours - often most disappointing part of the meal. Desserts are typical pub-sugary ice cream-baed. A fair few pies on the menu, and these are heavy on pastry and light on meat. When we wrote to Marstons about this we didn't get a reply. The lawn and deck area are very pleasant in the summer but because it's 2 for 1, it often gets crowded, especially at weekends, and the level of service tends to drop. Cheaper than the competition but not necessarily good value. But well-liked by the locals.

“Excellent recommendation, friendly helpful staff and good food”
Reviewed 28 October 2011

We stayed at the holiday inn on Geddington Road and one of the reception staff recommended this and it was really nice. Upon arrival it looked like fairy land with lights in the trees and looked like it was going to be a very expensive place to eat...but no...they do an offer on all main meals and specials main courses 2 for the price of 1. We had potato skins, prawn cocktail, sirloin steak, salmon fillet and 2 side orders and two soft drinks for the price of £27. The starters were a good size, 2 potato skins, the prawn cocktail was about 3oz of prawns on lettuce with 2 slices of brown bread (a slice cut in 2) butter, tomato and cucumber. The sirloin was a large piece cooked to perfection, as was the salmon. We didn't have deserts - no room.

Staff very friendly and helpful and would recommendation reservations taken. Postcode for sat nat is nn18 8hw and their phone no is [--]
