Sunday lunch

The Sunday lunches at this restaurant are fabulous, good value for money and a nice choice of vegetables, the informal layout is suitable families too, but it is best to book in advance as it gets really busy.

Nothing more to say don't knock it until you try it, Sunday roasts are delicious. As much meat as you can eat and all home cooked vegetables and delicious gravy

I have visited this restaurant twice during the past month and previous to that was 30 years ago. The last occasion was a family birthday celebrated with a Sunday Lunch and the food and service could not be faulted with everybody being very friendly. The restaurant is very informal but nicely decorated with ample parking area. I and the family... More

I have eaten here several times - it is always very good value and quality. I have always been able to get a table but I am told that Sunday lunch needs booking. I have had a traditional roast dinner, lasagna and scampi - all cooked well. Staff are very friendly and efficient.
