Food sounds delicious?
Get a table before they're gone
First time here I had roast beef dinner and my partner had cheese and onion pie chips and mushy peas. Both meals were delicious good quality veg and meat all cooked to perfection; gravy was very tasty. Portions were large so excellent value for money. Had to wait a bit for the food to be prepared but it was well worth the wait. Staff were extremely pleasant and very helpful. Go try it yourself you won't be disappointed
Lovely helpful staff. Thank you to he chef that made us king prawns to start with, wasnt on the menu but was happy to make them for us. they were so really nice and very taste. My little girl really enjoyed her starter and menu. Thank you again
Incredibly disappointing I wouldn’t not recommend this place for anything other than a drink outside in the sun. I am in disbelief that this place gets an average review of 4.5 stars. I can only think it’s seriously gone downhill and that score will soon drop. The service was really inattentive. We had to try so hard to get their attention. We asked for a drink, they took one request and pretty much ran off to get it. We had to call the waitress back to explain the kids wanted drinks too. Some Prosecco spilt we got their attention but even then there was zero urgency on bringing a cloth or anything to stop it dripping all over us! There’s too many tofu options for veggies and not enough other choices. The Mexican bean burger on the me u was a “Mexican BEEF burger” on the blackboard so we didn’t know whether it was a veggie option or not. Similarly, the chicken burger on the menus as labelled with a ‘V’ so is that a chicken style veggie option? Who knows. There was a really loud guy, presumably drunk, at one of the tables. He was ruining it for the families trying to eat with children. Staff would look each time he and an outburst but did absolutely nothing. This was a 70th birthday celebration and was ruined to be honest. Staff seemed hassled to have to deal with us or maybe even too shy for it and it was really hard to get their attention. No one ever came back to ask if we wanted more drinks, anything else, desserts! Even in bad pubs I’ve been to they’ve at least done that. To be fair on the kleftiko and pies at least portion sized was good but the kleftiko was ruined by an overpowering taste of lemon which it would never have in Greece. The pie was ultra heavy and the chips disappointing. We took the risk on the “bean/beef” burger. It was veggie but disappointing and a small portion of fries. Ciabatta didn’t go well with it and it was carb overload given the type of patty and that it had nachos on top! All in all we felt really sad for my Mum who’s 70th it was and who had been looking forward to it having heard good things. We were also in a dark, gloomy corner. The pub needs some attention but is currently a long way away from being a nice place to eat. The food was not good and the service some of the worst I’ve had in a long time.
