We stopped by at lunch time on a Sunday. Very close to Tescos. Clean establishment that is modern and serving good food. Family, not Olde world style British pub. Not romantic ambiance but nice. Good parking.

Service was good and friendly, hall and Woodhouse so ale not to my taste. Meal was the cajun chicken burger. This was pretty average to be honest, it did say cajun mayonnaise so we got what we ordered. The Coleslaw was home made so was tasty and we ordered chunky chips which were OK. The let down was that the chicken breast was breaded and I got the impression it was commercially supplied as apposed to one that was locally supplied. There was no cajun spices in the chicken and the flavour was from the mayonnaise which was poor. Having said all of this we ate all of it. A great favorite dish let down by the quality of the main ingredients. Would have likes to have seen a butcher supplied checked breast rubbed with cajun spices.

Enjoyed a relaxed family meal. We were accommodated despite it being Tuesday night quiz night in a separate non quiz area.
Staff very friendly and helpful
Good selection of well prepared food, fast efficient service, and reasonable prices. Not fine dining, but if you are looking for a hearty meal out then we had no complaints.
