I've been going to this place for over 25 years and used to love it but won't be going back. Quite sad to witness such a decline since my last visit. The service was a bit hit and miss. Couple of guys were really attentive but a couple of the girls certainly were not, including the one who couldn't find our reservation so left us standing like a couple of lemons while she disappeared to pour someone a drink. Our first waitress plonked our starters on the table and dashed off without checking we had everything we needed. Predictably we didn't, no forks. Our plates for both starters and mains were greasy so not sure where or what conditions they were washed or stored in. My wife's pate was accompanied by an underwhelming pot of what can only be described as Branston pickle, not the onion chutney she was expecting. My main of slow cooked rib of beef was obviously boil in the bag. It was a heap of jellified meat and un-rendered fat. The rest of the dish was a collision of sweet, rich flavours, all too sickly. Finally, though the rest of the place appeared in decent repair, the alcove we were seated in was grubby with large patches of damp through the paint work. I can only assume complacency has taken it's toll, someone needs to get a grip.

This is my local and to be honest it's a bit hit and miss. First thing to say is, it is a pub not a restaurant so don't expect gourmet fare. Having said that we regularly eat here as the rib eye steaks are always cooked perfectly. Food is excellent value and the bar prices are very reasonable too. What can let this place down are firstly the clientele which can't be helped. Secondly some of the staff are excellent but some of the younger ones can't be bothered. Finally on occasions there just aren't enough staff on duty. At obvious occasions like bank holidays and rugby internationals this just isn't good enough. Oh and finally one other thing too. On a couple of bank holiday weekends we've had to go elsewhere because they've run out of food. So in summary best to go when it's unlikely to be too busy when the service will be good and it won't be too rowdy

had suit trousers altered and stitching came undone. Popped into store on 23 December and said I can collect in New Year. Store Manager told me to take a seat while they did them immediately. Ten minutes later all done - exceptional service!
