Average generic pub food. It's a popular place so they must be doing something right but my meal was frozen and microwaved. Not fresh or tasty. Not for me.

Just re-opened after a Flaming grill makeover. The new menu is all about the Grill Choices, The quality and value for money of the steak meals is excellent. Great meal deals for the kids. Friendly and efficient staff. The new-look Fountain is proving to be even more popular

First time back at the refurbished fountain but meal average. Used to great but not good this time. The "roast" beef was more boiled than roasted. Portion size half what it used to be. Other items on menu look nice and seemed to be enjoyed. Don't think I would have the Sunday lunch again.

We had a great preview of the new menu tonight - my hanging kebab was delicious and my husband's steak was perfectly cooked as always . Love the new layout too! Staff great as usual!
Looking forward to trying more off the flaming grill. Well done all
