This is another Green King establishment, however unlike the Mitre in Southampton the difference is like chalk and cheese. This is truly an outstanding pub the staff are excellent with great service and eager to please. The food is excellent and I would recommend the meal deal with two meals for £10.99 they have a fine selection of wines and... More

Was a busy Friday evening and we had only booked the day before for 14 people. The food was fairly quickly to arrive and all looked very nice and was hot... which can be a problem when you have large groups and being busy. I had the cod & chips which was a good size portion. The staff were pleasant... More

Quality of food barely average, I had the Sunday roast which had the mashed potato missing as advertised. Theortion was small although my grandson had achilds portion of macaroni cheese which was very large for a child.the worst part of the visit was the state of the gents Loo's which were swimming in urine! I am unlikely to visit again

Booked for 7 for lunch. Arrived and had to wait 30 minutes before being served. We were only served because I went to say that we were ready to order to the waiter who was stood playing with his phone (it wasn't even busy!) Ordered our food and drinks and 30 minutes later the food started arriving in bits and... More

When I telephoned to book Christmas day lunch back in October, I had to speak to the manager as she was in-charge of all bookings. I was told we could be squeezed in at 3pm as there were 10 of us so it would be the second sitting. I decided to visit the pub to make sure the table wasn't... More

I used to drink at this place fifteen years ago; it was also a good drinking pub. Now it is different; the car park is packed at 1230 on a Friday, they still have a good selection of real ales at the bar but the menu and service is very good indeed. We had scampi and gammon, all served with... More
