I went to this public house with a couple of work colleagues, we ordered our drinks and I said I would have to go to the toilet first before I had a drink, after which I returned to the bar only to find that the drink I had ordered and paid for was not there I enquired to the bar staff, who were I may add very rude, they said to me that they had given me the drink, now with the backup of another two customers who said that I had not received the drink ordered and that I had gone to the toilet they still refused to give me my drink which was paid for. Hmm customer always right! This is certainly not the case here. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

The place is tucked a way from the beaten track, it’s got lots of hanging baskets and an outside seating area, there are sports screens for sports fans and cocktail deals for cocktail fans. There are also comfy seating areas for people who enjoy big sofas. The prices are reasonable and the staff are friendly I visited it in a lunch hour with friends and we stayed a lot longer than we had intended so I guess it must be easy to make yourself at home there.
