Dreadful food. Beer is not great. Feel for the staff as its not their fault. Best avoided.

Visited on a busy Friday afternoon, one guy at the bar trying to serve drinks and take food orders. All credit to him as he wasn't getting flustered but it did mean a ten minute wait just to get served. Beer, three ales to choose from and my pint was chilled to the point of being tasteless. Food - I opted for the Homemade Beefburger described as "minced steak chargrilled and served in a soft bun with smoked cheddar, tomato, lettuce, mayonnaise,
sweetcure bacon and seasoned chips". The burger was overcooked, dry and chewy. The melted cheese was a thin layer of congealed yellow oil, and the thin strip of bacon was burned to a crisp! As for the chips, a small spoonful of dry tasteless catering pack chips that certainly weren't seasoned in any way.

A truly unrewarding experience.

Very busy now all through on a Saturday but very efficently run by Kerry and her team. Lots of staff on hand behind the bar and very little waiting. Will visit again soon, Well run establishment with a very friendly and personel touch..

got to be honest , the last time i went here it was dreadful ! Kept away since . Tried again last week as a friend wanted to go and there has been a bit of a turnaround. Good waitress service and it was full on a thursday . mind you a 25% discount may have contributed. In fairness I could not faulty the food , yes i did say that ! and my friend who is a food critic to say the least had nothing to complain about except a slightly wobbly table. Have decided to give a better rating but mind you this place has gone up and down like a yoyo ever since it opened. I am slightly relieved as it is such a nice place to go to. Oh I note now run by someone called Kerry who I worked out was a female ! Thats a good sign .. Will give it another go soon to make sure it was not another one off

Have to basically agree with other comments. No soap in the gents loos and a broken toilet seat are just lazy complacency.

Set menu for a group booking was good value for 10 and they had an interesting choice of ales - Fuller's Summer Ale & Adnams Ghost ship
