I've always been a big fan of the town crier but after todays visit I'll never be going back. Popped in for some lunch today...and the lovely food was completely ruined by a rowdy group who came in. I understand some noise is too be expected but they were completely out of control. Screaming, shouting, swearing and banging on the table. The bar staff did absolutely nothing.... would they like to eat their lunch in that environment? So disappointing as the food was nice but completely ruined. We rushed the lunch as didn't feel comfortable staying in that sort of environment.

Thank Rebecca H

I have been popping in here for two decades, not much has changed.
Beer still OK, service average, prices reasonable and a certain type of customer... Better / worse pubs in city..
See you in another 6 months..

Called for a Coffee and subsequently a lunchtime meal with wife.
Service was efficient and very prompt. Food was excellent along with the value.
Apart from there being 'NO COORS' a very pleasant visit and will definitely visit again.
Thanks very much.

Passing by with friends and thought we would pop in last Wednesday. Glad we did!

We had fish and chips and shepherds pie, portion sizes were excellent and tasted really great but the highlight was the home made carrot cake.

Very impressed this place and will be back to try some more cake.
