The flying legends On my visit six months ago was a fayre and square branded family dining style pub that I was told was going to soon be converted into a hungry horse chain. This review is for the Flying legends when it was under the Fayre and Square Banner.

located at the side of the road near Clifton Moore stands the flying Legends. This pub is unfortunately located next to a children's ply centre that means the pub is overrun with large groups of family's with screaming children. Even tho this is a pub /family dining venue there was no one here hair fir drinks, the entire place was full with family's and young ones dining in cheap pub grub which probably explains why drinkers are not found here. The layout is the same as what you will find in most of these type of outlets with with a standard bar running along the side of the pub with the rest tables for diners (or non existent drinkers). The amount of screaming children was crippling on my mid afternoon visit, service was very slow and the food was on the lower end of the budget pub grub scale. drinks wise there were 2 hand pulls but I was told one was only ever in use and this was always Green King IPA. (The horror) . This set me back £3.20 but to its credit was kept in a very good condition. Maybe at night when the children are in bed and the adults come in night this place have a bit more atmosphere and pub feel but due to its location in an sort of semi retail park type place I can't see This as there is nowhere in immediate walking distance of residential streets and even if there was I doubt people would choose here. Overall it was very poor and cannot be recommended. if it has indeed changed to a hungry horse I will check it out again just to re review it but in pretty sure the same shortcomings will still be apparent.
