Great choice of food from a menu or special board. Food and drink order taken at our table, food arrived quickly, tasty dishes which were all hot. Large puddings, staff friendly and happy. We have eaten here before and look forward to the next time....More

Had to wait quite a bit of time for food but once it arrives it is definitely worth. Great for kids and all the family.

Thank you for this lovely review. Many thanks

Reviewed 18 June 2017

It's a typical chain pub. It does have an extensive menu but a very poor one if you are vegetarian. Having seen plenty for my partner to eat I was reduced to the usual, utterly boring and depressing veggie lasagne. Groan. How uninspiring and totally...More
