Quick Sunday Lunch! Lovely lady quickly sorted a table. We opted for the Sunday Roast. Ie Turkey and Ham, and Roast Lamb. Both coming with all the trimmings. Lovely fresh vegetables, not overlooked and everything served hot and tasty. Good location, right beside the Railway Station and also an excellent car park across the road. Reasonably priced with drinks.

We ordered the roast chicken and gravy for my son. The toddler bowl of champ with gravy is inspired. So much that once he has polished... More
