The quality of food was poor quality. The food was that of a chain pub and we got the impression that much of it had been reheated ( microwaved. The steaks we ordered were over cooked. When I arrived I sat on chair that was soaking wet. The staff were forgetful and not that welcoming. It took half an hour... More

6 of us met up for our pre-Christmas lunch. It was a very good experience. Not having been to this pub before I was pleased with the whole deal. Good food well cooked. Good beer well kept. In a rather splendid building. There is a carpark at the rear.
