Food is cooked to perfection, large portions and excellent quality. Definatly not a stewed tasteless carvery which seems to be the norm nowadays. for anyone who appreciates good quality food...

We came here by chance after a gourmet weekend. The staff were most helpful in finding us light eats for myself and GF wife. Nothing was any trouble, we will seriously consider coming again in the evening, though about 25 miles from our home. Muni / staff very inviting.
