Been here before on several occasions mainly for the Carvery which has always been good, but our last trip last week was not good at all. Did not enjoy it at all, vegetables did not look appetising and was overcooked, the roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings were cooked from frozen, not what you should expect for a proper Sunday lunch....

Visit this place regularly as its very relaxing, spacious so you are not sitting on top of the next table and in the summer there is a big outside area with seating. Inside there is a kids ball pond area and outside a kids activity area. It is what it is. A chain restaurant with a standard type menu .... More

All 22 of us, all retirees, booked our Christmas lunch for 12.30 on Thursday 4 December. Tables had been laid for us in a side room, it was very festive with crackers laid out on the tables. We had pre-ordered our food from the festive menu, so the starters were brought to the tables and the soup, the mushrooms in... More

I do understand that people have different tastes but... More

Lovely village pub with a very large garden but everything else was terrible. Service was poor, slow without a smile. Food was just about edible. Dry and tasteless. Will not return
