“Thursday 24th April 2014”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

Arrived at 5pm, atmosphere and staff pleasant and welcoming. service fast and helpful. My meal arrived promptly and the waitress came to check that I was happy, I finished with a simple ice cream and was very pleased and satisfied.
HOWEVER! as I was leaving [to play bowls as it happens] I called into the 'Gents' [approx 6pm] one wash basin was half full of sick and the floor was more or less awash with water, I did not linger!
During the bowls match I returned to the 'Gents' [approx 7.30pm] to find it had been cleaned apparently with a hosepipe as the walls were as wet as the floor, there was no soap and no toilet paper, empty soap dispenser and two toilet roll cores on the floor though! I brought tissues from my car but, again did not linger. PS I know your staff are busy and clearing up sick is not nice but just a little more effort would have made all the difference. Jim Clarke

“Won't be eating there again in a hurry”
Reviewed 7 August 2013

Mistakes can happen in the best of places, of course, but our experience of a lunch time treat turned out to be anything but.
The main meals arrived BEFORE the starters, which was bad enough, but when the prawn cocktail was finally served it was complete with mouldy brown bread.This was efficiently sorted out 15 minutes later. No comment was made apart from an apology by the waitress. The garlic bread with cheese was practically inedible due to the blackened crust and the breaded mushrooms came with the extra dimension of hair. Slow service due to the lack of experienced staff really didn't help and our complaints were seemingly ignored - shrugged shoulders all around I imagine. Maybe we should've been more vocal in our displeasure.

“Best value .”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

If you want value for money for food and drink this restaurant cannot be beaten.

We had fish chips and pea for two with two drinks for ten pound. The batter on the fish was better than I have had in far more expensive and pretentious restaurants.

OK it is difficult to get a seat and the atmosphere is not romantic. The service was polite and efficient . No waiting for your bill.Because you pay when you order and get a wooden spoon with your table number on.
