Very poor overall. Sunday 20th Dec ,evening, went with my family ( 2 adult children ) , decor old and worn, unclean feel to the place. Ordered fish & chips and a lamb stew. Fish was obviously frozen, not freshly battered and fried, chips ( fries) were also frozen skinny variety, very limp. I asked the waitress for Malt vinegar ( standard request ) , she didn't know what i meant, asked if Balsamic was ok? !! Eventually brought some generic vinegar in a plastic dish. Lamb stew was the better option, barely. At the same time that this was going on, out of the 4 people sitting at the bar, one was visibly drunk and getting more and more offensive. Swearing loudly ( f bomb ) and starting to get into people's face's. A young family close to us ( with young teenagers ) got up and left, had their meal changed 'to go'. We settled up and left shortly after.

My wife and I came here tuesday night to watch the mckrells Christmas show. We were not dissspointed, the show was excellent the beer was excellent, but overall what stood out was the service. Our waitress Liz? Was prompt courteous and extremely helpful, and the girl who brought my food out was very polite as well. The only complaint I had was that it was a bit crowded, but still enjoyable nonetheless. We will definitely be back year after year.

Had lunch today, 12/21/14. Will never go back. Service was terrible from waitress and kitchen. Two waitresses for 5 tables. 10-15 minutes to get our drinks - water with lemon, a wine and a beer. No lemon in the water and gave my beer to another table that ordered after us. Three drinks, two wrong. Soup came out warm, not hot. Our empty soup cups and beer glass sat on our table at least 10 minutes until the other waitress removed them. Another long wait and my sandwich came out wrong. Two sandwiches, one wrong. Waitress said that she asked the cook before she brought it out and would check again. She never came back. The other waitress finally came over to say they were making it right. My wife was done with her's when my finally arrived without fries. Waitress dumped my cold fries on the new sandwich plate! I told her that they were cold. She said that she would see if they had more and never came back. They did remove the charge for the sandwich. With five tables occupied, I observed at least 6 mistakes at 3 tables.

Right now we are going through a transition period and most of our staff is brand new. This is not an excuse and I would like to invite you back as our guest. Please introduce yourself to Joan who is the owner or myself who will be in the kitchen and we will personally apologize for this unfortunate happening you had. And we will make sure your dining experience is perfect as it should be. we thank you for bringing this to our attention as we now realize we must improve so we can continue the success of our establishment.
