This pub is one of my favourite pubs in the North East. I visit the pub at least once a month and I always get nothing but 100% service. The staff are 100% and the food is well worth it. Reading these comments on this site I think some people need to stay at home and leave good pubs to serve good food. I disagree with people ruining a good pub this is spot on and well worth the stop. The staff are very nice and always provide good personal service. They are also not like American robots and don't use the American pun "enjoy". They are much more personal in their service. If ignore mr Steak and Kidneys comments and pay a visit and Mr Steak and Kidney read the menu next time you can not meet a nicer guy then the one that owns this pub.

Dont bother. If you are looking for a cosy pub lunch then make sure you pass this pub and leave it on the roadside as it should stay. Scruffy, run down establishment with unreasonable manager. Tried to order what I thought was going to be a "steak and ale" pie. After waiting what seemed like ages our lunch finally came out... steak and kidney!!!! My own fault as I should have spent more time reading the small print.... But even still it was more like "Kidney and gravy pie". I mentioned to the waitress, that I thought I had ordered steak and ale and she was most helpful and offered another meal, but really I didn't want the extra wait. Yes, it was my fault at the end of the day, and next time I will take additional time when ordering food to read all small print.But as I was making the most of the the meal and eating my way around the kidney mountain, the manager decided to be smug and come across and tell me it was on the menu advertised as steak and kidney!! Then even told me I was arguing with him, when all I did was ask to see the menu as I must have misread it.Then to add insult to injury told me yes there is a fair bit kidney in the pie... Well why not advertise it as kidney bloody pie then, cos you were honoured if you had a whiff of steak or ale in it!!!??? Far more cosier pubs around than this one... find the three horse shoes at leamisde much nicer and cleaner, with friendly atmosphere.
