Usual good all round performance. Very impressed that Chef withdrew our ordered scampi dish because he thought they were not good enough to serve. Pasta dish was excellent.

When we arrived we were seated at a table by the door,which was really cold every time the door was opened,the young man serving us very kindly got us moved to a table by the bar,which was much better,the service we received from him was 1st class,he couldn't have been any better,service with a smile and a lovely manner,our meal was great,only downside was we had to ask for our desert,since the place was really busy the staff were great,would definitely return.

First time I've been since it changed to a restaurant. Didn't feel comfortable at all, felt cramped. Ordered the steak pie, very mediocre. Veg was cold and chips were poor. Partner had the fish n chips, said it was ok.

Waited over an hour and a half for our starter then another hour for our main. The food was disgusting! I will never set foot in the place again. Felt sorry for the servers as they kept apologising. They are more intressyed in their take away service and diners who book are served lthe slops last. Don't go near the place on a Saturday night its like a soup kitchen.

After having a bad experience here as lockdown was lifting its took me months to try again. Although my steak pie was good my partners curry he said the chicken pieces were too large & the curry tasted like a packet mix. His Guinness was lacking a head even after asking for it to be made bigger that didn't happen. Having been disappointed twice we won't try a 3rd time.

Service was very slow even though there was plenty off staff. Disappointed that there was no mash potato. The staff made 2 mistakes with the food 1 which left my 10yr old hungry. Otherwise the food was lovely.

We had lovely meal on Sunday night. Only down side was three other customers who’s language was terrible. The F word was every second word. We thought we were in a restaurant not a mans pub.

First time there and definitely be back, took a bit of time for the food, server recognised this and did apologise for the wait. Serving sizes are decent, if you go for the loaded fries have someone to help as they are a meal on their own! Food quality was excellent, couldn’t fault it.

Customer service was pleasant but unfortunately the food did not match it. Steak pie was over salted and beef was not tender. All draft beer was off due to cooler problem. Disappointing.
