    Had the beef, it was stewed

    Only one bit of broccoli not much bigger than a 50p price, so over cooked you could mash it.

    Over kill with the potatoes with boiled mashed and roast. The mashed could have been instant, the roast potatoes were nice.

    The lad who served put the food on the table and ran. When asked for horseradish he mumbled something, eye contact was too much to ask. 10 minutes later it arrived after he asked someone else to bring it, the lass who brought it was friendly enough.

    The food on the bar looked good the food me and my friend got looked left overs and tasted worse.

    2nd bad experience in so many days, it's a pity because this place is local and I've had some good meals here, but that was a year ago, something has changed since then. "

    Thought I would try the roast, had the beef.
    It's was of a lower quality than a school dinner, the meet was stewed over cooked and I'd guess it was microwaved.
    The veg was just as bad if not worse, one bit of broccoli that was so over cooked you could mash it with your fork. The only other veg was a mountain of carrots. It did come with 3 different potatoes mashed boiled and roasted, the roast potatoes were okay.
    The lad who served the food dropped the plates and more or less ran, when he passed I asked for horseradish, I got a mumble in reply.
    The lass who brought it over 10 minutes later was friendly.
    Stick to the bar food and don't expect a friendly greeting. "

    We rang prior to visiting and were told we didn't need to book to use taste card, bonus. Food is reasonably priced anyway but taste card made it even cheaper. Lovely hot food, cooked fresh and lots of choice. Sunday lunches looked and smelled great!! As did sharing platters. Tried a few cocktails, again all fresh and delicious. Cheap too. Great atmosphere, friendly staff. Nice terrace to sit outside on a sunny day. Definitely visiting again and would also recommend. "
