When it comes to having a drink and a meal out with my mate/flatmate we are pretty spoilt with nice looking places all around Somerset. However my best mate runs a nice pub/reseteraunt so most of the time me and my mate do go there to be honest. However the other day we were out and about and decided that we would try here cos we had past it time and time again and always thought it looked very pleasant and reasonably busy.

The pub is situated in Worle just three miles from Weston-Super-Mare town centre and has ample parking including a disabled bay or two as well. Outside there is a large and well kept garden and the pub is large as well, and spread over two floors. The pub is decorated lightly with plenty of different types of chairs and sofas and as you walk through the main entrance you are greeted by a large and well stocked bar. Gentle and unoffensive music plays in the background and the pub really does have a nice relaxed feeling to it. This is not a chavvy type pub but directed in my opinion at more of an eatery and patrons really do vary in age.
The toilets are clean and yes there is a disabled one as well. Me and my friend sat upstairs and decided to have a bite to eat there and a drink as we were feeling half starved lol. Drinks of are standard prices really and of course there is a selection of teas and coffees on offer too and children are allowed in the pub up until 9pm.
The meal choices on the menu are vast with lots of colourful photographs depicted on there too. There were starters on there such as melting baked Camembert (£4.75), Garlic King Prawns (£3.95) and pate in a pot (£3.95). Main meals include British beef and pedigree ale pie (£5.95), Cajun chicken (£5.45), West Country fish casserole (£7.75), apricot and goat's cheese nut roast (£7.45) and lamb with pomegranate (£8.75). There are also a huge selection of flame grilled meals, burgers, fish, salads and combos and also a couple of options of meals to share, sandwiches, wraps and jacket potatoes all of the above have plenty of vegetarian options too. As you would expect there are a few side dishes available as well and then there are desserts and ice creams such as melt in the middle chocolate pudding (£3.40), lemon bakewell (£3.50), red cherry waffle (£3.60), and strawberry and white chocolate mousse (£3.50). The only problem me and my friend had eating here was the choice on offer on the menu to be perfectly honest with you!
The staff were smart, clean and tidy and very helpful indeed. We sat upstairs which includes table service in the price and you pay for you meal with the member of staff that served you at the table however if you sit downstairs you simply order your meal, give in your table number and pay before you eat. Out waitress was really, really nice and very prompt in serving us.
Me and my mate both went for British beef and pedigree ale pie which at £7.95 (for the regular size portion) was of excellent size and had plenty of fresh vegetables on it which were broccoli and carrots, with new potatoes and plenty of tangy gravy. Our meal was delicious, hot and plentiful and had a real homemade taste and look to it. After consuming that I had a chocolate pot which was simply smooth melted chocolate with a few curls sprinkled over it and cost me £3.60 and I was also asked if I would like to keep the teracotta pot it came in which I did! My mate went for apple pie which cost her £3.50 and she chose to have it warmed up and she said it was delicious and again tasted home made!
All in all the meal was really nice, we wernt rushed and the setting was nice and we felt really comfortable in there and said we would definitely visit again in the future!
You can make this as cheap or as expensive as you wish to dine here. A jacket potato no matter the topping on it including prawn Marie rose or cheese and beans all cost a mere £4.75. They do a Sunday roast for £6.95 and a Sunday roast and any pudding from the menu for £8.95, of course on a Sunday only.
This is a nice, relaxed and above all clean and smart pub. I like the layout and I like the food and the drink here and I am looking forward to my next visit...in fact I may go later for a half of lager in the garden lol.
