We've been coming here for what feels like forever - because it's so damn good. Sunday lunch is great, the bar is always rocking and we've attended so many parties or events it's untrue.

The deal was good we got a free starter or dessert with every main. Soup was nice, chicken wings were nicer- pulled pork burger was alright however not enough pulled pork and there was flour in out onion rings (undercooked). Would maybe return but not in a rush. Service was fab.

We arrived at 7.30 pm and ordered our food fairly swiftly, no starters as we wanted desserts. No complaints about the food when it came, it was of good quality and we all enjoyed what we had. Service was slow, our food arrived at 8.45pm and kind of spoilt our night as by this time we had lost our appetites.... More
