Every time I've been to this pub we've enjoyed great food - including excellent vege options (once they had vege hot dogs, which were fun!) The beer garden is fantastic and they have a lot of space indoors as well. Highly recommended.

This huge 19th-century pub beside Victoria Park has a large garden (complete with busy ‘garden grill’ in summer), a main bar decorated with Victoriana and Eagle-style comic annuals that serves creditable pub fare and, tucked away at the side, a full-blown dining room furnished with retro British Ercol Windsor tables and chairs. This Britishness is celebrated on the menu too, though we were grateful for the inclusion of continental touches such as a pretty bowl of gnocchi topped with crayfish tails, peas and a well-judged saffon sauce. New-season lamb rump was perfectly pink and tender and served with a piquant salsa verde and caper dressing. Fat mackerel fillets came draped over roasted potatoes, a warm fennel salad cutting through the oiliness of the fish. Puddings included elderflower jelly with mixed berries, and treacle tart with apple sorbet. Slow service – a result of understaffing on this occasion – let the generally good standard of cooking down, but the drinks list is enlightened, with good beers (Meantime and various guest ales) and interesting, affordable wines by the glass.

I'm surprised to read so many bad reviews. My boyfriend and I went here for sausage & mash just before Xmas they do an offer of 2 for £9.95 (I think it's every Thursday) the food was good, bacon and maple sausages were really tasty and overall service was good and staff friendly. Seems like a wicked place in the summer too!
Rude service at the bar - which takes for ever. One nice guy works there and thats it. Food is pretty much awful. I like the garden if I am with the dog and kids have enough space to run around - the only reason I dont give this one star. Sometimes serve some decent local beers .
very poor. the place was empty, yet food took an hour to arrive. Burger was dry, bun was stale, and the chips were rock hard. wont be returning
OK not the best Sunday roast in the world but great to have a place where I can take dog and kids after walk in the park and dont get the skunk eye from the staff. Good local ales - kept pretty well too
Its a lovely pub, and I always enjoy a drink there. But I've tried to eat there three times, each worse than the previous one. The last time I was there the food was so poor the manager just handed back our money and apologised. A shame.
