    Steak on the school dinner deal is just so good. Meat is superb quality. Portion size is very good. However, not much of difference in portion size in "school dinner" fish&chips & normal fish&chips

    Brewing their own ale underneath the pub, it doesn't get more local than that really! Usual staple bar food, and some unusual drinks on the taps to try. Very busy with a wide range of people drinking.

    Shame there's no women and eight out of nine of them are white. Great acts but a little more diversity is out there in comedy and it'd be great to see more of it.

    Excellent menu, great ale both home brewed and from local breweries. Good package deals (theatre menu etc) and even cater for students. Lovely atmosphere, great for groups and swing music :)

    Love eating here. The place is spotless. The staff polite & attentive. Food is always off a very good standard. There is plenty of outdoor seating. Is close to a children's playground

    Without doubt, the most professionally run Boozer in Town. Always an atmosphere and quality food and beverages!! Should have a Tourist Attraction sign from the station !

    Still one of the best pubs in town but getting more expensive all the time! They also need to expand their meagre vegetarian options... Otherwise, top marks.

    If you're stuck on doing your bow-tie, one of the bar-staff knows how to do them.

    The new owners have really improved the beer range, worth a revisit.
