  • 1 star reviewI believe this place is soon to close down and by the comments listed it's no wonder. I hope when it reopens they find some staff who are actually willing to work

    David Blair Reviewed 23rd May 2014 8:00 AM
  • 1 star reviewVery poor. Manager/Assistant manager was a young man who wanted a carry on more than to ensure good service. My hubby remarked, "I wish I was barred so I could never come back!" I replied not to worry, we won't be.

  • 1 star reviewDire. Jukebox tunes changed without notice and waited ages for a pint. I was not happy. Also known trouble makers who have been known to throw glasses are regularly spotted there. AVOID!!!!
    Michael Nail Reviewed 3rd March 2014 5:40 PM
  • 2 star reviewNot a bad burger but have tried to get in with a suit to be told I was "at a Christening" and as a result couldn't be served. Despite the fact my wife and I had just put our Sunday best on. The barman/manager appeared to take great delight in informing us we were at this fictitious event. Won't be back despite spending lots of money with friends on previous occasions. Lost a good dozen customers now.
    Andy Love Reviewed 27th February 2014 1:55 PM
