The Great Exhibition is a Victorian pub with a modern twist. The quirky interior filled with wooden tables, wall exhibits and leather sofas give it a warm and welcoming atmosphere. They serve up delicious British pub food at unbeatable prices. Most meals are less than a tenner which is a great deal for the quality. The Sunday roasts are also a big hit with visitors. The pub has not one, but two beer gardens to enjoy when the weather permits. The gin alley isn't something you'll see everyday and was made for exactly what you think, drinking gin.
Besides the delicious food and long list of drinks they are known for their unique events. Saturday mornings you can find artisan markets with locals trading craft items while other evenings there are ale and pie society events and real ale festivals. The Great Exhibition is perfect for a relaxing afternoon, a family meal or drinks any day of the week.

Reply from The Great ExhibitionThanks for the review! Glad you had a good time :) Ali Everett General Manager
Reply from The Great ExhibitionSorry that you found the atmosphere too loud for your liking. As you said, it was very busy and a lot of people book tables for our Sunday jazz band who play every week. Obviously, that sort of atmosphere isn't to your liking and we can only apologise for that. Regards, Ali Everett General Manager
Reply from The Great ExhibitionHi, Thanks for the feedback. Did you speak to a member of staff on the day? We can assure you that nothing had been reheated as everything is cooked fresh on Sunday mornings and we welcome anyone to pop in to the kitchen with us and see how our chefs work for themselves. We hope you come back to give us another chance as we are very proud of our roast dinners and can only apologise for this rare dip in quality on our part. Regards, Ali Everett General Manager
Reply from The Great ExhibitionSo glad you had fun! We hope to see you again soon :)
Reply from The Great ExhibitionHi there, You are correct that our roasts are usually priced at around £15. The £70 per head offer was for Christmas Day only. No other day of the year. I had 6 members of my team give up their Christmas Day with their families to work here and serve. Everyone here did a fantastic job on that day and I was very proud of all of them. Unfortunately, Christmas Day is always going to be more expensive than regular days. I can assure you that we were the cheapest in the area and will be again next Christmas. Sorry that you didn't enjoy your day due to the pricing. Regards, Ali Everett General Manager
