I booked out the function room for my birthday earlier this week and that in itself is great as it's free as long as you can get 20 people along buying food. There is a skittles lane and plenty of space.

Food is good. We ordered from their party menu for 7.95 each and decent potions too. The main thing lacking is the service. Don't get me wrong, they were all really helpful and friendly - can't fault them that way, but we were expecting to have someone manning the bar in the function room but we had to keep going to the main bar, where the queues were long. It made the evening drag quite a lot which meant not everyone had time to stay for skittles, which was the main reason we booked it.

A pub which still retains its character in these ultra modern days of gastropubs. Good place for a family party in an informal and friendly environment. The food is reasonably priced and well made. An excellent experience.

Very enjoyable lunch - steak and ale pies and battered hake. A bit of a wait but it’s freshly cooked. Large plates of tasty food. Service was friendly and welcoming.
