We walked in here on the quiz night but they still served us food. We had a pie dish and the roast dinner. The gravy and vegetables were very nice but the Yorkshire pudding was not up to scratch. Good selection of beers!

Guiness and a Beef n Guiness pie is hard to beat. Kevin makes delicious pies and is a fabulous Steak with a demi-glaze chef. Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and great 2-4-1 deals on meals. What's not to like.

Much better than standard pub food, as good as any meal I had at more expensive restaurants. It was an Irish Pub type atmosphere, but the top end, very comfortable version of the pub genre. The staff were friendly and attentive.

A relaxed atmosphere with welcoming staff. The usual range of beers with plenty of comfort food. Fine for a crowd or a couple.

Staff were friendly, meal proportions were generous, on a cold night it was cosy inside, we enjoyed our first meal there. We were there on a Tuesday so it was quiet inside but plan to return for a bingo night etc. Give it a try!...More

Two large slices of thick plain white bread (reminds me of the budget bread at the supermarket) for an open steak sandwich? Looked like my 10 year old cooked it. Steak was good, but not an ounce of salad or garnish. Just a bit disappointing...More
