Pub downstairs and hotel upstairs. The pub space was large, open, well decorated, and seems to be the happening place evenings and weekends. At first we stopped by for a drink while waiting for friends lodging above; after seeing the menu, we decided to come back for dinner.
I ordered the vegetarian curry with sweet potatoes and peppers. It was deliciously spicy and full of flavor. Definitely a place that I would try again if I get the chance!
Great pub in a great location, prices are average, food is delicious!
Massive outdoor seating area and enough car spaces for 60 cars, I usually come here on Christmas Eve as it's near my parents house- and it's rammed(ticket only)! it's just as bad at weekends and when it's sunny, but it is family friendly. They usually have a singer or live act on a Friday night.
This usd to be a great pub but seems to have down the pan of late. Tatty decor that never feels properly clean. Bar staff lack knowledge of wines/spirits and food isn't up to scratch either
My Mum was taken for a girly get together meal here last week and was very disappointed. Of the five meals ordered only one was even vaguely warm and every meal whether gammon or fish was really burnt and placed best side up as though it would go un-noticed, and the staff were completely disinterested when it was pointed out to them. Also the chips had been re-heated so many times that they were quite inedible.
I thought this place had been taken over and were re-branding themselves but sadly if anything they seem to have gone from bad to worse. It takes a lot to make my Mum complain especially in front of her friends on a special night out and so because of the very poor meals, the staff's lack of interest and refusal to recompense I think they fully deserve to be publicly reviewed like this. Poor Mum got taken by friends(?!) again, Feb 2012 sadly, no improvement.
She will not be going again!
