Disabled toilet has no key , so it was open to all causing some problems for a mother and child and myself , not wanting to claim to be looking into peoples minds to say if they have or don't have an illness but it needs sorted. If it did get locked and not left open they use a knife to open it. They ran out of bottled beer, as a becks drinker I was rather disappointed, after buying a round for friends, a helpful member of staff went upstairs and brought last couple bottles down and then asked if I would like one, I said of course thank you, she then said that will be £3.80 or thereabouts , I nearly choked , it has less in a bottle than other beers like Bud etc and considering a pint of cider is under £3, I was shocked. They really need to sort out the disabled toilets and look at the pricing structure as they may well have lost a few customers after the last visit we had.

Went here for a birthday drink with friends and family. Decided to have a bite to eat while I was there. Food was very good. Service was quick & really good prices for both food and drink. Definitely be back soon.
