I've drank & eaten in here a few times and the staff always seem friendly, the beer is good and the seating areas are comfortable. The problems lie with the loud & foul mouth locals that seem to occupy the same table (on every one of my visits) The swearing and the smoking of vapes right by the bar is... More

Christmas celebration meal was spent here for a large party (20+). Tables were set up in a way where people could interact with most members of the party, the food was served in a timely order ensuring no one had to wait until their meal was cold before starting, the Christmas menu was varied and people got what they ordered,...

Visited twice this week both at lunchtime. Food was good but could have been warmer. We mentioned this to the staff but said it wasn't a complaint just a mention as the whole meal great.

A lot of money has been spent on the décor inside and out, but the quality of the food could be better. Portions were not big, but still quite pricey. Service could be a lot better; very hit and miss. This pub isn't making the most of itself.
