“Excellent value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2013

Sunday lunch is fantastic value for money. Noted an increase in prices on the weekday meals,but for 'pub food' there is no better in the area. You don't feel empty or conned when you come from there. Service is hit and miss throughout the week, but excellent on a Sunday when everyone is switched on - suppose they have to be, as the place is packed. Worth a visit or two or three.

“Lovely clean pub, very poor quality food!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2013

I took my daughter for lunch on one of our days out, the bar manager was very welcoming and the place was lovely and clean and very modern. We were seated in the eating area and given menus. A few moments later our order was taken for our food ... I ordered Tuna mayo in a Baked potato and my daughter asked for the home made steak and ale pie. Our meals arrived on enormous plates, my jacket potato was cold and the tuna was revolting ... full of black bits which tasted more of sardines; it was not nice!! My daughters "home made steak and ale pie" was a huge oval basin filled to the brim with Bisto gravy granules type gravy and a few bits of chewy meat at the bottom; the pastry was a huge amount of puff pastry cut out and plonked on top ... again not nice! The chips were the run of the mill frozen type accompanied by a few over cooked peas. All in all it was very disappointing, certainly not "home cooked food" . just fast food, FAST! Yuk. They certainly need a new chef! Such a pity they cannot offer properly home cooked food, they would have a gold mine of a business if they did!
