Think this closed for a refurb at one point last year and my November 2017 visit was after it had reopened. I don't think it is a 2-for-1 place on meals anymore, seems to be trying to be a bit upmarket. You can always tell when a place had reopened or had a refurb or change of owner as the staff are overly attentive. This usually wears off once the reality of dealing with the general public grinds them down a bit. It was still very shiny and nicey nicey when I went.

This place is obviously geared towards dining and there was nothing exciting in the way of real ale. Bombardier Glorious English was the only one available; looks like they also do Wainwright but the pump clip was turned round. There were a couple of ciders - Stan's by Thatchers.

Not really a drinkers' pub (though I was not made to feel unwelcome) but thought I would give it a try as I was passing.

This is a huge Marston's pub doing a vast range of food. It is a 2 for 1, so if eating you need to go with a friend. We both had the Lamb Steak at £14.95 which was one of the dearest meals, but when you half the price it is not bad value. The food was good, staff very friendly, and we had a perfect pint of Lancaster Bomber.

my wife and i use this pub twice a week for a meal and we have never found a problem worthy of complaint apart from meals sometimes being served on cold plates which has since been rectified. All we do is ask. The staff are friendly and very hard working and always willing to oblige. yes sometimes things might be a little slow in clearing but that is because they have been so busy and even their staff have only one pair of hands. we love the place,and to get two meals, three pints of real ale and a couple of soft drinks for £20-£25 is a dream come true for us.
