“Exceptional menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

This seems an unassuming pub at first glance, but the meals we had were really top class and good value for money. The lamb curry was as good as any other I have had - tasty and spicy.

The interior of the pub is also very interesting and despite looking a bit run-down, it has a pleasant ambiance about it. Worth a visit!

“Great old English style pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

Great venue for watching football or rugby.. Typical old English style pub. Bit dingy and grotty, but the atmosphere is great, service ok, prices reasonable and food palatable.
