We went when there was live music. It was a Blues Jam. The music was great as was the friendly atmosphere. Good good for the sort of venue

Great pub, good food & music. We booked a table for food which was very close to the live music. The staff moved us to another table where we could still see the music. We had good food, a fun time in great ambience.

Sunday lunch with family of nine to celebrate a birthday. The bar staff were warm and friendly. There was live music and atmosphere great. Food all served together and was lovely. Pub decor is very tired but that’s more than offset by every else being excellent. Recommend and will definitely go again.

We booked a table online and upon arrival were completely ignored by both members of staff. After a while we went to the bar to get out drinks. Eventually we were acknowledged and a menu appeared. Not a great welcome. Food was variable, and the service eventually became attentive. Nice ambience and live band.

Very disappointing. My wife and I have been here a few times and eaten here on one occasion before. On this occasion, the room was cold, a number of items were unavailable and the elderly newzealanders who accompanied us were upset by the loud drunken swearing from the next table. The fish & chips one of us had was a greasy disaster and the ‘roast’ was tepid. A shame, we used to like the place.

Just had a very enjoyable evening, listening to great live music and dining. The food was tasty and plentiful served by a friendly, helpful waiter. Planning on going again and making it a regular occurrence.

Always a great pub for a meal . We had to ring as we were late but there was no problem holding the table we had booked. My pulled pork pie was delicious though not my first choice as I didn't think I would enjoy it. Everybody else was tucking into there food and beer. Should have stayed and not gone to football.

Wonderful food, good sized portions, helpful staff. Sadly, the place was heaving because a football match was being televised (unbeknown to us on booking), so it was difficult to get to the bar to order. But our table was in a separate room, so it didn't cause too much disruption.
Good choice for vegetarians, vegans and dairy free - we had one of each in our party! :)
