Good value food, but ...

The food is good value, and specials are £9.99 for 2. However, I was in a group of 5 who ordered from the Specials Menu and was surprised they didn't charge us all £5: instead, they allowed 2 couples to pay £9.99 and the fifth person had to pay the full price. Bonkers! Poor choice of real ales... read more

We popped to the Lamb for some lunch and left feeling very happy and full. Food was fantastic and good portion sizes. I had the steak and ale pie which was beautiful and my husband had the mixed grill which was cooked to perfection but too big for him!

A decen homity pie, but the vegetable were about as badly cooked as I have ever eaten. The red cabbage was stewed to death, the sprouts (which shoud have been kale) seemed to have been boiled for hours and then kept hot so they had gone spongy and the 'honey-and-thyme roasted' parsnips appeared to have been no where near any...

First impressions were good when we visited for lunch as the main restaurant area was nicely decorated and it looked promising. However, when our lunch arrived, we were not happy. It was a simple jacket potato, but the amount of filling was laughable. It must have been no more than one level tablespoon of chilli. We complained and were told... More

Came here for Sunday lunch, very big restaurant and nicely laid out. We took the option of 2 meals for £10, our friends also opted for that and had a good children's menu for their son. Their staff were friendly and provided colouring pencils for Harry. We all had fish and chips which was nice though portions a little small.... More

Spent 2 nights recently, the Reception area is difficult to locate from the front doors (rather than from the car park). Signage directing guests should be clearer, and not just painted faintly on the walls in area one wouldn't really look at.
