Decided to have a change from our usual carvery place and go here with my children and in-laws. What a wonderful meal! Prompt and friendly service at the bar. Beautifully presented carvery with great selection of seasonal vegetables. Excellent value for money and wouldn't hesitate in coming back again or recommending to friends.

We were sat in the sun in the garden (mid October) and had a drink and the next day we were back for lunch. Great home cooked food, just a pity we weren't around longer to taste a few more meals. The beers etc were kept well.

Popped in for some lunch and got the pleasant surprise of an excellent Carvery Lunch, couldn't fault the food or service, especially at only £5.95 per head. Staff were great, very friendly, food a wonderful surprise and excellent! Wish they had a bar in Edinburgh
