A very nice and honest Sunday roast in a cosy, warm environment. The menu might not massively long, but who needs 500 pages of haute cuisine if you can get good, tasty food at a decent price?

I have used this restaurant for two events, once for a Zombie Hen Party, not your usual but the restaurant went above and beyond to make it special, and just recently for our Works Christmas bash - 20 people and each and everyone had a great time. Great staff, who really make you feel welcome. I have also eaten here... More
