A very disappointing experience that is likely to stop me going there again. I had an online voucher for a free birthday drink that was abruptly refused as we were taking advantage of another offer for a free starter. When the starter came the waiter then appeared with the mains!! We said we needed time to eat the starters and... More

Visited the Bull & Anchor today for lunch with friends. From outside it looked a bit run down but although dated inside there was a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The food was really tasty and well presented. Had a really nice time and the staff were really friendly too. Just shows you should never judge a book.........would definitely go here... More

This is our local, but we don't tend to go as the last 3 times we've been in the last two years have been very disappointing. Despite this we thought we'd give it another go on Sunday. Wish we'd gone to the chippy. Waited nearly an hour for 2 burgers, it wasn't busy, no one told us there would be... More

A far cry from last year when we went last. Only one bar man serving and doing all the order taking for food. Shocking wait on being served. He tried his best but the management need to look at staffing. The wait on food was nearly an hour and every one was complaining about the wait.we had wings hot and... More

If you are looking for a very substandard meal, a very long wait to get served at the bar and an even longer wait for your food, this is the place to go. We live close to it and keep "giving it a try" but the pattern that has developed is that you will have one half decent experience followed... More
