My wife and I came here for a quick lunch a week ago, upon arrival we were very impressed with the newly renovated interior, it seemed much more fitting for a country pub compared to the previous "under the sea" themed monstrosity. We were greeted at the bar by an overbearing, older gentleman who informed us he was the landlord, who offered us bar menus. Whilst harping on at us about how the new business was meant to make people feel welcomed and relaxed, we felt quite the opposite in his presence, so we moved away. The burgers were OK, slightly underdone, there's rare and there's raw but they were good value for money. The young barman improved the experience no end with a splendid bloody marry and a cheery disposition. Overall an OK experience, OK value for money, not quite yet hitting the mark as it should be, perhaps some busy trade will tone down the over zealous management!
