Solitary unsmiling bar staff. Dirty beer garden, obviously hadn’t been cleaned in weeks. Used to be very good, but has the feel of a pub about to be closed-down. Avoid.

Really bad pub. Food overpriced for what it is. The staff are really rude and lazy. Dark haired barmaid is really coarse and off putting. Food is of really poor quality and tastes like cardboard. Avoid.

Food looks amazing but isn't cheap, it has a relaxed atmosphere and shows the football which is great. It's basically like every working man's local boozer that's been smacked with the gentrification stick. Meaning all the idiot drunks can't afford to drink here but anyone...More

We went for Sunday lunch, friendly service, good hearty food at reasonable prices, plus dogs are welcome in the bar too which is always a bonus.

Great place for home made food and very well served. The pub was packed with families and thei dogs and children all enjoying nice food with a drink to wash it down. Really worth a visit if your looking for a good lunch.

The tiniest starter I have ever seen, the squid rings were very small and thin, the salad leaves o k but not exciting. They forgot the aioli too! Will not be returning.

I stopped coming here for six months or so as there was no atmosphere and it felt like a restaurant. The new manager and his team have bought a new energy and buzz back. Thank You!!! We are now frequent visitors
