Fancied a Sunday roast lunch with the family. Most places were full. Ended up here. Food was average. Some of the veg was cold. We're fairly sure the roast potatoes were cooked from frozen. Staff seemed uninterested. We had to find one to get the...More

It may not be the cheapest place to drink compared to town, but I can walk so save spending £20 on taxis. Friendly staff, good atmosphere, nice locals and nice outside seating. Bar staff are always great, I'll mention Tom as he is good fun...More

Great food and atmosphere, would be nice to pop to the local more often. But it's quite expensive and is more of a treat than a regular occurrence.
