Visited the pub several times for drinks during a long weekend in the area, usually whilst waiting for a bus. Friendly and helpful staff with good prices. Seems a little tired now and less busy than on previous visits.

Plenty of free parking. Helpful and friendly staff. Extensive menu, tasty food, decent portion size, good value for money. Plenty space between tables. We both enjoyed our visit and will definitely be returning soon.

Ok, it's gone a bit downhill lately but the beer is decent and well priced. I've not eaten here but the staff are friendly, the prices are reasonable and there's worse places to be.

Appalling service, cleanliness poor and overall staff attitude couldn't care less. Where was the manager? Decor is poor - what has happened here? Would not rush back in a hurry. There are much better outlets up the street
