Used to be good. Now they can't even rustle up a decent ploughman's. Miserable triangle of cheddar, lettuce soaked in mayonnaise, half a tomato, bit of soft bread. Eat in the cafe above the antique centre. Better food and better value.

Had dinner here, nice old pub in good location at Battlesbridge. Food good, generous portions and reasonable prices. Interesting clientele, lively place to be!

Staff friendly and service good. Dry Rose sweet and syrupy. Cesear salad very disappointing, croutons stale, chunks of chicken processed and dressing not to a great taste. My dressing with my salmon and dill burger could also have been a better quality .
