“High quality pub food”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

The offer was a 2 for 1 , 3 course meal at a very impressive £19.99. We didn't have great expectations at that price but we were stunned by the quality and service. The slow cooked pork starter was superb, - moist, tender meat nicely presented with an apple and ale chutney and crostinis. My main was fillet of hake on a bed of fennel and pea risotto. very good indeed. The other main enjoyed was pan fried lambs liver and bacon, caramelised onion sauce and whole grain mustard mash. Desserts of rich chocolate mousse and a pavlova were a delight. there was even a bottle of wine as part of the offer for just £10. Quite good too. Altogether a.terriffic meal at an amazing price. Will be back soon!

“Now getting its act together”
Reviewed 25 January 2014 via mobile

The food is very good, not as big a selection as others in the group but sufficient. It needs to hold this standard, as on previous visits it has not been as good.
