After refurb
  2 / 10
Cheap food but very poor quality. Steaks OK for the money but anything they make i.e. meat pies,mash etc are pure rubbish. New landlady appears competent but the John Barras group (Punch Taverns) probably provide the food so no choice for the manager. Also the beer is more expensive.

friendly welcome

I have been visiting this pub for the last 6 or 7 years and it is the cleanest and friendliest I have seen it. The pub itself needs a total over haul but if you look past this you find good food and fantastic value for money. Contrary to reviews I have read I found the landlady and partner very helpful the staff that I have met go out of their way to chat to you which makes a nice change from the usual robotic types you tend to find in most pubs. I always have a nice meal and a good pint in here and me and my family will continue to return.

Filthy pub
  1 / 10
I, like many others who use to frequent the Marine thought a new manager and manageress would be the answer to the Marine's past problems. Sadly this is not so, the Manageress seems a nice lady, but her partner is an ignorant yob, frequently using profane language in front of children, being aggressive and rude to customers. Why on earth are people encouraged to go and smoke in the childrens play area by placing ash trays on the outside tables?
The food is cheap, of poor quality and served luke warm, sometimes with ice still in the meat. The kitchen staff spend most of the time stood outside the kitchen door smoking. The word is that a refurbishment is on the cards during Spring of 2011, lets see what happens? I don't hold out much hope though! Its sad that a pub in such a good location has been run down to this level, it would take a respected pub co to take over, chuck out the low lifes and turn it back into the pub it once was.
The priority is to dispense with the existing duty manageress and her objectionable rafish partner.

food/hygiene
  1 / 10
I am a regular visitor throughout the summer, however i recommended the place to my parents due to cheap prices and friendly service. They went today for the first time after checking over the caravan. They were appalled by the cleanliness of the whole place, the toilets and seating especially. And when i asked about the food it was the worst they ever had. Cod full of bones and mushy. After returning that they decided on the roast beef dinner, which was frozen mixed vedge, packet mash potato, frozen yorkshires and frozen individual portions of beef. A truely unpleasant visit. Time to look elsewhere i think , cheap is certainly not cheerful. A shame because location and building itself is great.

Why Cant They Get It Right - Its Not Rocket Science
  1 / 10
After years of putting up with poor service, some very rude barstaff and filthy conditions I thought a change was on the cards with the arrival of the new landlady. Whilst she seems very nice things simply havnt changed. The toilets were refurbished to a very very poor standard yet the landlady accepted this work, how ridiculus, the beer has always been up and down but it seems to be getting worse. Some of the bar staff are just plain ignorant. I am not a landlady however as a guess heres what people want:

Good food and beer
a clean environment
friendly barstaff
quick service

its not rocket science. To the landlady, if you are reading this then just ask yourself, am i doing what the customers want, you have barstaff who are very poor at their jobs (no names, you know who they are)SACK THEM, if the beers not good, then ask why and sort it, if the floor or toilets are dirty, clean them and for gods sake put a leash on your partner who acts like the landlord when it suits and like a yob when it doesnt

friendly advice and remember its the regulars that keep the place going in the winter, i genuinley wish you success but you need to be tougher on people and weedout the deadwood
