Dinner for 2 on a quiet February Wednesday night. Barman took the order wrong, however he did look very young & very new. server brought starters out and dumped them on the table and walked off, didn't give me a chance to say I didn't order that... so took it to the bar and asked for it to be swapped...

Went in for a quick pint and burger. I ordered a chicken burger but it came in 3 (small) chicken-nugget-esque pieces which I felt didn't constitute a burger. Furthermore, this wasn't specified on the menu. I requested to speak to the manager and in fairness the staff were very polite. However the manager showed no interest 'what do you want... More

Nice friendly pub and deceptively spacious inside. Excellent choice of real ales which were well kept. The food menu is small but if you like burgers or hot dogs you will be fine. Food was ok and good value. I had Hunter's Chicken which was really tasty and chips were nice and crispy but as is often the case chicken... More

This is an amazing pub. Great selection of food and drink and best of all an old arcade table. There were also plenty of board games. Downstairs toilets were a bit spooky but that just added to the atmosphere.This was very central too and extremely kid friendly. Would definitely return.

Went in for drink on a Friday evening and it's an interesting place. An eclectic mix of furniture and people. There are board games available and they also do food. On Saturday lunchtime we popped in for a bite to eat whilst out shopping and sat upstairs where the husband could watch the last 30 minutes of the football on... More

I only chose this pub as there was a problem with my original choice for an evening meal and my mother is not able to walk far. It had quite a relaxed atmosphere and it was clean. The seating was comfortable and quite snug, considering it's not a small place. I ordered the Fish&Chips which was really delicious. Lovely thick... More

Visited this afternoon for lunch. Ordered food for four people, nothing too taxing 2 dirty burgers, fish finger sandwich and macaroni cheese, food eventually arrived after waiting for an hour and asking twice for the order. Dirty burger was ordered as it was advertised as being covered in chilli con carnie, turns out their version is baked beans in chilli... More

We arrived at the west gate on the day after Boxing Day. Welcomed in, ordered our food, then we were informed the food that we had ordered was not in stock so we had to re-order... no denying the fact that they were lovely about this and allowed us to order a more expensive meal with no extra charge!

We went here for a few drinks after work one evening and it's a really nice pub, a lot better than it looks from the outside! Really friendly bar staff as well who genuinely remembered "same again"....perfect.
