Went with girlfriends to listen to the Cliffes - there was a mix up with the Entertainment. Enjoyed another act The food was good value and excellent. Huge portions for the price. Can’t wait to go back again.

The layout of the restaurant is a little wonky, but they're about to move so that may improve. It was also a little old and tired, so that may improve too. Good pub food though, and friendly staff. Seemed to be quite a few regulars...More
