    Food was good, service was good. Only issue was they were understaffed and we.did a bit more waiting about for drinks. We ended up not getting a last round as we were finished and ready to go by the time the staff got to us. Nobody was sitting around they were all just too busy worling hard to deal with our request

    There was no steak pie available. My starter of garlic mushrooms was poor. My main of cajun chicken wrap was disgusting and inedible. Chicken wrap was totally covered in creamy tasteless sauce. Desserts were OK.

    We were quick to be seated and the food was lovely but although they came and cleared our table nobody asked if we would like anything else and we would’ve bought more drinks so we just paid our bill and went elsewhere.

    Was great night got our table on time and quick service. Only let down was they wouldn't serve cocktails/pitchers because it was too busy but we could get these from other pubs that was just as busy. Floors and tables were sticky with spilled drink but I guess this can't be helped on a busy night

    Enjoyed my experience however constantly being asked if “will I get you the bill” rather than can I get you anything else annoyed me.

    We were located in seating at front of pub. Once seated the sounds seemed to increase with folk then starting to shout at each other. Security handled a tense situation with one idiot very well. One of our party did not receive his pint he asked for. Finally decided to forfeit it after paying the bill. Was a little ferril much earlier than anticipated. Our group still really enjoyed the meal. Look forward to coming for our next meal! Well done guys.
