    I had booked a table but was disappointed when I was shown to a table next to a TV where they were showing Manchester United football match so towards the end of our meal we couldn't hear each other because of people bawling at the TV .... not my thing at all, shame really as the meal and staff were really good, just spoiled by the ethos we have around football.

    Had lunch with a group of ex work colleagues, now friends. We do this once per month, and since coming about six months ago for the first time, we have unanimously decided that this is definitely the place to come. Excellent food; excellent service; and friendly staff. What more could you ask for.

    Awesome Sunday dinner. The best in the area. Really good price also. Two course for £20. The lamb was delicious. We travel relatively far to come here as it is that good. You won't be disappointed.

    I had a roast chicken dinner that had buttery veg with it. I didn't get the veg and was given peas instead. No explanation given. The waitress dropped a plate of food on to the table and it just missed hitting my friend's jumper. There was a distinct lack of a sincere apology. The waitress was heavy handed, banging things down on to the table. She never asked if we had enjoyed the meal or offered the sweet menu. My food was nice. My friend had chicken pieces that were not as described. With chilli does not mean unseeded chilli's and chilli sauce all over the chicken pieces. They were far hotter than indicated on the menu. For me, there were too many children, too much noise and too many sports screens. We waited a long time for our food. They were busy, but we had booked the table so they knew how many people were dining with them. Disappointed really.

    Food and service very good, I'm on crutches at the moment but they gave us a table so I could prop them up without any problems. I'd been here ages ago but partner never been, he loved it. I had beef and he had the lamb, both superb.

    We arrived on time to be sat under a large TV with footy on. This I refused and we moved to another table also near to a TV. The pub is always very noisy and it's a pity there's not a quiet area for diners. Of course it's a good and happy ambiance and the food is good and very good value for money. Our waiter was harry (?) He was 1st class. We will return with ear plugs!

    Second visit this week. Not our usual haunt.. however we enjoyed our Sunday lunch so much we thought we’d return with my family. I had steak however not the best option, it was tough. The waitress, the same one from Sunday was uninterested and couldn’t care less. I told her about my steak but she wasn’t interested. Not a clue why she even works in hospitality! Even my boys commented both visits. Had it not been so busy I would have complained. However I will return. It’s a nice pub and most of the staff were pleasant and happy to help. Just the odd one!
