  • Simon said: "Dry, tasteless, overcooked steak
    Pros
    * great chips,
    * better than average side salad with a scrummy dressing.

    Cons
    * both starters were only luke warm,
    * both steaks were asked to be medium rare, but they were very overcooked - dry and tasteless.

    When the waitress asked how the meals were, and I complained that the steaks weren't what we asked for, she simply said "but is everything else all right?". So the main part of the meal was rubbish, but that's supposed to be ok because the chips were good?

    We've eaten here before and had a reasonable meal, but never again. "

    " Unfortunately our meal was spoilt by a young group of girls who had one who obviously did not realise just how loud she was. Food was fantastic but service was very slow as ways. We would visit more if they sorted the service. 45 minutes from order to getting food and there were only 12 people in the restaurant. No other orders after us and no other food delivered to other tables. Never mind a good meL and great deal but spoilt by things that could be corrected. "

    " This is a cut above your average pub fare, with some tasty looking options on the menu, but since we were on a tastecard offer, we both had a starter, followed by the 28-day aged sirloin, with yummy real chips and a side salad. The large portions left us with no room for pudding. The only downside for me was, no real ale.

    Don't be put off by the estate-pub exterior, give it a go - the food is much better than you'd expect from the outside. "
