As promised we're back as it was Sunday lunch and we were already booked for an evening meal we only wanted a sandwich, unfortunately they were unavailable.

And half a mushroom and pineapple slice to boot. Chips were yesterdays as well. Fish pie was OK. Not what is... More

We had dinner here tonight and I'm so pleased we did, I ordered the roast beef and every mouthful was delicious, plenty of seasonal vegetables to go round and two homemade Yorkshire puddings. We all had desserts that were just as nice and every one in our party of five agreed that if we lived closer or were visiting the... More
