We had a good deal from Living Social - £120 for 2 nights b & b plus one dinner, and a free bottle of wine per couple... More

There is not a lot of choice in this area for dinner on Sunday evening. We discovered that The Park Head serves a carvery until 6pm, perfect for us and our visitors. They had full roasts of beef, pork, turkey, and ham with generous carvings. Lovely perfect Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, mashed turnip, cabbage greens, sage stuffing balls etc., A... More
