“Awful.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

The starters were okay, but each of the (different) main courses was almost in edible. Following an email complaint, I was offered 4 free main meals, but declined.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Had a couple of meals here as the steak was very good. Very friendly staff although some of the locals were quite loud. If the public bar is busy and you just fancy food the lounge opposite is very nice.

Delicious pizza. Thin crust, fresh real food toppings and adjusted in any way you want. We were a large group and the service was good for us.
