Very enjoyable meal

We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Steak meal lovely with steaks cooked perfectly. Baked potato, onion rings etc, delicious. House wine was good for the price. Dessert was a bit disappointing as not home baked but we expected this. Nice waitress who supplied us with both ice... read more

Went on Sat 18th July 2015. There were 4 in our party which we had booked the day before. On arrival we were told there would be a 45 minute delay because a party of 20 ( stag party ) had booked late. After being seated we then waited another 25 minutes without our order even being taken. The table... More

Went with the missus and in-laws. I found the staff very friendly, helpful and efficient. My food was lovely, not a huge plate but that is the way I like it.(The family said they wanted more but their steaks were so good they did not mind the price or the amount on the plate). I had chicken New York (nice... More

We visited early evening and found just one other table occupied, but still had to wait 50 minutes for our food. The steak was over cooked and a mass pile of chips wasn't enough to distract from that. At £16.90, you'd hope the premium would give the chef an extra pair of hands to speed up service and cook the... More

Having seen a couple of bad reviews since its revamp we were a little unsure, but I am so pleased we went. The minute we walked in we were greeted by a member of staff and shown to... More

Went here at the end of March with the family for my birthday. It was a Sunday lunchtime carvery and the food was excellent. The staff were extremely kind and helpful and had no objection to my daughter decorating the table and bringing in a birthday cake for me. Thanks to you all.
