Popped in here for a carvery lunch during the week. The food was mediocre, well cooked but bland. Chicken curry tasted like it made from a packet. Service was friendly, decor is very nice. Decent selection of craft beers. Reasonably priced.

Had eaten carvery here a number of times and it was always good. Not fabulous but good. Missed the carvery time one Sunday so ate off the main menu. I had chicken gluons, served with peas and chips. Thankfully I had ordered stir fried veg as this was fresh. The chips and stir fry were edible but the gout ones... More

Others had pizza, chicken curry with rice & chips which they all enjoyed. The service was quick & friendly & considering it was a carvery... More

Very good service, great atmosphere, but the food let us down. The steak was fatty and very hard to digest, and though not expensive, certainly wasn't up to standard. The service was very good and the waitress was helpful and friendly. We also found out the last taxi was 10pm, so we had to finish our meal before than or... More

One of the best home made burgers I have ever had the pleasure to consume, non of the pre bought ones from a local supermarket. On par with the finest you will get in America, the home of the great burger. Def will return... More

Rang to book, but was advised no need, they'd fit us in somehow. Very friendly from the off, arrived around 7pm on a Saturday to find the place very busy, but true to their word we were quickly seated, beer got, orders taken, all very good, a lot of places could learn a lot from the customer service standards here....
