2 burgers for price of 1 on a Thursday night. Staff were friendly and food came quickly. Nothing fancy but exactly as described and a good choice on the menu. Good value for money.

We were greeted when we came in by a very nice man who asked us if we would like to sit upstairs or downstairs which was nice. The food was fantastic. The service was very good as well. Very nice pub, would definately go again.

I've eaten here before and had a great meal. Today was not good! We arrived at 1730 and from the outset we felt very awkward while waiting for the waitress to show us our table, she seemed more interested in having another conversation with a member of staff. The second young waitress who delivered the food clearly had to be somewhere else to be and threw the plates on the table along with the additional cutlery. The food was poor! Cuscus was crispy having been reheated in a microwave. The Sunday Roast was less than appetising and was very poorly presented. Thai Green Curry vegetables were 'mush' and served with lumpy Boiled Rice. The Desert was by far the best out of the three courses, but there again our spoons were thrown down on the table between us. Complaints were passed on to the Staff, but no concession was offered. Just a throw away comment about mentioning it to the Chef. I'll try it again, because of previous good experiences, but they'll have to up their game...
