The Roebuck Tavern - what a class experience of beer, service and humour - how pubs should be. And the food was also very good. I wish the pub was in Devon where I live.
Take a visit early evening and enjoy a Guinness or two, great music on the jukebox, relaxed and it's got a vibe about it hard to find these nowadays. Congrats from a guy who knows what it takes to get it right.
Just been to Arena Square on 16th Jan 2011 and it was overpriced garbage.
£4.25 for chicken skewers - 3 tiny bits of chicken and pepper on a stick, obviously from frozen because the pepper was imprinted on the chicken. Burger and chips was just that with a dollop of bland, tasteless coleslaw, and about 8 chips. Burger from frozen - yuk. £8.99 for about 3oz of frozen chicken with a scabby piece of cheapo bacon on, with the saltiest over-processed bit of stuff they call cheese on.
Overall the worst food I have ever had presented by surly, disinterested people. Everything was from frozen and was so over priced. Also decor was cluttered and done on the cheap.
Please stay away from this place it's utter cheaply produced crap. Marks out of 10, -10. Not happy, Jam.
Just been here and waited 1 1/2 hours for something to eat as not served till 5PM. Did not mind, as in the past seemed friendly enough.
Just before food serving time we were asked if we would like to leave if our children could not behave. I admit Christmas lights were been put up so they were quite excited but certainly not misbehaving. On reflection I think this was due to her not wanting her lights to be spoilt. She also tried to make the excuse that someone had complained (or had not as we had been sat at the side of them).
The main thing I would say is that if you have children avoid this place, as they are obviously not welcome.
And I am sorry but I would have thought during the recession they would try and keep custom
