Gone are the nicely cooked fresh vegetables,homemade gravy and sauces,and selection of "proper" chips and potatoes,only to be replaced by "chunky chips"... More

Used to love this place!! Atmosphere, furniture and decoration, a real old-type pub with a cosy feel. Great menu, fabulous food, friendly staff. Was so disappointed with a recent birthday trip, they've ripped the soul out of the place, made it look like any other pub. I know it's supposed to be the same chef etc but sorry the food... More

Food used to be amazing in here. Gone right down hill since this brewery took it over. Ok it's had a refurb again but what we thought was £9.95 for a steak it turned out to be steak on a pizza. So it was £19.45 for an 8oz steak and a coffee. Roast not saute potatoes as described, the salad... More

My friends and I (our group often consists of 15 or more) visited the English Lounge recently and we were mortified at how appalling the Sunday roast has become. Frozen Yorkshire puddings? and where is the famous gravy? It was like water that was served to us. Avoid at all costs. We will be doing. We don't want to visit... More

New refurbished English lounge fails in too many fronts, first time back since the refit where all the characters both working and those on the walls with quirky quotes, have been brushed aside. 90 minute service for a simple and disappointing starter which was nuclear cooked squid and inadequate main course

A lovely little hideaway that was great for a few drinks. Just down from the accommodation we were staying at, the staff member that served recommended an alternative drink that introduced me to a new favourite. Friendly bar staff and no pressure to move on and buy more drinks a great relaxed atmosphere.
