Amazing food. Tasty and filling. Great family meal. Recommend the messy fries so amazing! Friendly staff. Will be coming again soon for a nice meal with my partner
Place was closely situated to where we were staying, so we had a walk down. There is a lot to choose from on the menu, but we picked our favourites from there, I had belly pork other half had full rack of ribs. The service was very quick and friendly. The atmosphere was good too. It didn't take long for the food to come out and they looked really good. They tasted even better than they looked too! We were too full for pudding unfortunately, but there was a wide range of items on there too. If you are around that area i would definitely recommend trying it. It's probably worth checking their menu out online first too. There is also parking on-site/close-by too if you are driving! Price-wise, I think you are paying for what you are getting, so it's not on a cheap side, but what you get is worth the extra.
The staff were really nice staff, the food was good, just a little drafty in the corner of the room. Would recommend to friends and family.
Very nice food, very friendly staff - chips were far too salty but they offered us a free drink to compensate. A nice place to eat.
Great food and ale - particularly their own brew And the choice of burgers / mac and cheese. A fairly long wait for food though.
Nice friendly staff made us welcome, enjoyable dinner, limited desert menu, nothing wrong with it but had better, good value for money. Easy to make reservation on line
Okay. Confusion over what was available on menu, was then served chips instead of sweet potato. Took them away and apologised.had to wait for them.
Overall a good, the food was very nice, well presented. Ambience was comfortable, nice to go to with a meal with friends like we did,
