    Hadn't been to this pub for years so thought I would give it ago and have a Sunday roast with my parents ,unfortunately we were very disappointed , we all chose the roast beef which was very fatty , chewy and really not edible, we did complain to the manager who agreed it was unacceptable and offered us a complimentary dessert

    Nice cosy fire, helpful (but non-intrusive) staff. Very pleasant lunch.

    Lovely looking building, excellent decor and good buzz when you enter. Friendly staff. Good Value food - although drinks a little on the dear side.
    Disappointed that the food is obviously not prepared on site but bought in. We asked for the Mash on one dish to be replaced by chops and this was not do-able by the "chef"?!!! Also not all the items on the menu were available eg Wagyu Burger

    Nice clean restaurant, friendly staff, but with a big down side. We arrived and were immediately seated as they were very quiet ( lots drinking not eating). Our order was taken and we waited 29 minutes for our meals, why so accurate you may ask, the is this the third visit and both previous times we had long waits so I thought I would time the service, you decide if you feel that's to long. When the meals arrived they were ok, scallops black on the base and no flavour. One plus point the entertainment was interesting watching the bar staff throwing the limes and lemons behind the bar and the cleaning of the bar ceiling with a spray that cascaded onto the glasses and other cut up fruits. Overall it could be a great place, but the staff are giving the wrong image when not managed.

    We were welcomed and the service was good. However, I was disappointed that there was not a wider choice of salads as it was a very hot day and the tomato salad was off the menu even though we were there for early lunch. Also the creme brulee was not available.
