One of the best Carverys I have ever had. We went as a family of six and we all throughly enjoyed it. The staff were welcoming and went out of their way to make sure we were looked after. We will definitely return.

We were a party of 6, and all had 2 courses, with a couple of desserts being enjoyed as well. We were lucky to order from the tea time menu, good prices and fair sized portions. I was... More

We booked to eat at this restaurant as we were staying for the night in the Ramada Hotel which is attached. Staff were friendly and attentive and service was quite quick and obviously fresh. Good prices even though you have to purchase your sides separately for most dishes. I had the root vegetables - gorgeous! The portions are just the... More
