please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I often frequent this pub and find the atmosphere warm and inviting, especially for a golf themed pub. I have had food before that was very good and the service has always been good.

On a recent visit though after some months of not going in, the girlfriend and I decided to grab a quick bite to eat knowing the food will be good. We ordered the chicken mango salad on the special board. When the food came out we we very disappointed at what seemed like (not to say it is) cheap value chicken wing meat that was poorly scrapped off and salad that looked like it had been left out; tomatoes starting to badly wrinkle and spring onions that had gone brown. The dressing was none existent and after tasting my girlfriend salad who had a different dressing it confirmed there was none as it tasted exactly the same.

After talking to a friend who still goes in a lot he said to us the food quality had dropped considerably recently.

The bar services was good, very friendly especially as I was poured the wrong drink and there was no issue swapping it over.

In conclusion, I would still go back, but I don't think I'll order the food again, but bar service was good and friendly keeping the warming feel.

My wife and I visited yesterday evening. It was the second time since the previously free house was taken over by Fuller's. The first time they loftily informed us they had no 'ordinary' bread, only paninis, etc. Trouble was, the toaster wasn't working! No-one had thought to use a grill. Still, back to the present. The HSB was good but pricey. But why no ESB? Could it be the latter is stronger and thus not quite so profitable? We decided on food, and we most definitely weren't impressed. My home-made burger (from locally-sourced beef) had the consistency of (and not much more taste than) compressed sawdust. It should have been a cheeseburger, but don't ask me where the cheese was. The chips were both dark and greasy, a mark of their being put into the fryer before it was up to temperature. My wife's fish was fair, and a little too large for her, so some of that made up for my uneaten burger. On my complaining we were offered a free pudding. My wife chose the brownie with cream. Talk about a sting in the tail: overnight it all returned! I wondered, when we went in, why so few people were eating. Now I suspect I know. We won't be back.

Nice pub. Caters very much to the local golf crowd who can at times take over.

Good food, nice to sit outside in the summer.
