The Venture, big car park- busy during the school run 2.50 - 3.30pm week days. The food is excellent, no problem with, quality or quantity for the price. Great spot out side, if it is sunny, for beer & food. Like all major pubs, staff struggle on bank hols, mum's day & Xmas ect..but worth booking in advance for those... More

We go to venture every week for the quiz, which is very busy. We enjoy eating here but sometimes due to the amount of people there the food can be poor. However in quieter times the food is lovely!

Enjoy the pub always busy, good service on the food but need more bar staff. I always seem to be waiting a while for drinks but it's not the staffs fault. The steaks always seem to be too fatty but apart from that all good
