The food was excellent (we went to the lunch time carvery). It was not very busy which was a bonus so we were soon sitting down to our meal. Three meats to choose from,... More

The quality and choice of the food was great and the cheap price tag was a welcomed bonus. I must say that this restaurant is refreshing, as it seems in... More

Due to circumstances my partner and I decided to go out for our Christmas dinner this year, many places we're booked but we managed to get a table here, we thought the price was a little high, but thought the treat of eating out would make it worth while on Christmas Day. We arrived and was left waiting for our... More
