Went here for an evening meal with friends. I was really looking forward to it because the menu looked really interesting.

Always good when I've been previously and this time was no different. Had the sausages and mash and was happy to see 3 different style of sausage on the plate! Mash was average but the gravy and onion rings made up for it. Definately top class!

Why take reservations if they can't actually serve food at a reasonable speed? We were served rolls for soup, then a lot later the starters turned up, including the soup, then a lot later again the mains turned up and the desserts took equally long. We were there a total of 3 hours!! Such a shame, as the food was... More
