I have to echo the review before. This could be such a good pub. The building is lovely and they have a gorgeous beer garden. Yes it's very expensive but you can spot that pretty quickly. The staff though drive me mad. They've had quite a turnover recently - but no improvement. There can be double figures serving at the bar but if there's some mates in, some gossip going on or any job needing doing other than serving then that's where they'll be. You know your place in the pecking order. Such a shame - it ruins what could be a good experience.

This could be such a good pub, if they didn’t apparently assume they already were.

On the rather warm Saturday we went, there wasn’t room for us all outside, so we sat inside — where it was absolutely stifling, to the extent of making us feel ill. Why not even ceiling fans?

Presumably the pub had opened early for World Cup Rugby. When we left, early in the evening, the used glasses fromthe morning were still stacked high and unwashed on the bar. Why was it not possible to employ someone for an hour or two to wash up?

Staff weren’t rude, but neither were they particularly conscientious or friendly.

One of our group ordered a “BLT”, which was disgusting — flabby, fatty, undercooked bacon, artfully arranged on a wooden slab with bread which was either very lightly toasted or stale, she simply couldn’t tell.

Wake up, this pub! Realise your potential! Stop messing your assumed captive audience about.

Overall rating here seems rather harsh. Great interior and lovely beer garden. My first pint of Broadside had gone off but was replaced immediately and with a smile - all subsequent pints were good. Food was on the pricey side but pretty nice. Wouldn't be desperate to return but had a good experience.

I'm surprised by the terrible rating! It does have a lovely garden and depending on what you're drinking it's not any more expensive than anywhere else around there. It's a geronimo pub and the food is the same (hugely expensive) price throughout the chain and of decent quality. Staff seem ok apart from one guy who seems to think he's high champion of the world and has his nose in everything.

Not at all cheap. Had a very ropey pint of Broadside, before settling for the Aspalls Cider. Food was good but expensive (About £11 for Bangers & Mash!). Worth more than 3 out of 10, but not that much more. Nice back garden, though.
