Hasn't altered since 'soup dragon's' review. We had the 2 pie meals for £10, but,whereas the meat was very tender, the minute portion of chips was not enough for a toddlers meal! The service was excellent. The Lumphammer ale was refreshing. The smoking area was up there with the best. I will certainly venture here again (but will order extra chips).

A detached 1920s build in mainly undressed brick, with some garish paintwork in typical Mad O'Rourkes fun style. It is a corner pub/resturant that does accommodation. There is a rear patio. Was part of the MOR chain, but the other two closed the other day, so we visited here to show a bit of support.

The interior is classic MOR - open plan that encircles the central bar area - food is ordered at its own service area. The decor is mainly blue and red ceramic tiles and of course, it is all tables, set up for food. There are lots of pig, kitchen, jugs, pots, pans and old hatchets used as ephemera on the walls and so forth, as well as the sawdust scattered on the floor. There are also old local photos on the walls. We ate, the food being fine, from a 2 for £10 menu. The service was friendly, the place started quite quietly, but did end up being quite busy for a Monday night. Background music was quiet.

Beer; tap stuff, with their own stout and three real ales they do - Lumphammer, Sledgehammer and Ice Pick, all of which are happily drinkable.

Shame that the other places have closed as MOR's - i always thought they were busy enough when i visited. I am sure i will be back here at some point.
