The staff are so friendly here and always happy to help. The restaraunt itself is always clean and is bright and airy. The food is delicious. I've only really had the carvery but it's always the same, fresh and tasty. Would recommend to all

We have eaten here many times and the carvery is exceptional. A bright airy restaurent with large bar area help towards the atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

Which is a shame as the bar was very good, a small selection of international lagers (on draught) and everything else you could want. The food-... More

We have eaten here quite a lot and do really like the carvery. The restaurant have a new menu now which is mainly British. The staff are very friendly and helpful, even when it gets very busy. They are happy to carry plates for children and older diners too. We will definitely be back! If you are celebrating a birthday... More
