Plenty of hot food. Only complaint was roast potatoes were over cooked and broke my fork. Suggest they should not have been put out as plenty of food there that was lovely. Deserts were lovely to. Pastry of 10 aged 5 to 81. All very full and happy.

Stopped here while on a long journey on the A49. Food was OK, service was adequate and friendly enough, but it was just a dull place with slightly tired decor. Nothing wrong, but nothing to make you want to return, except for the handy location and large car park.

Delayed in our trip back to our hotel in Shrewsbury we were starting to wonder where we would eat on a Sunday evening as so many places seem to only do lunches. Saw this place and thought we would at least get a carvery. What a surprise, an extensive menu and excellent food. I had the lamb leg steak which... More

We have been here twice recently. Once for an evening meal and once for Sunday lunch. The evening meal was delicious (we had the lamb cutlets) and staff were very helpful and efficient. We also enjoyed the Sunday carvery. THE place has a large car park. Would recommend.

This is a lovely restaurant with lovely food, and excellent value for money, but to go in tonight and find the manager so drunk he could hardly walk (was not welcoming) he was pestering people for drinks and sticking his middle finger up at my partner. The other waiter staff were very welcoming but not a lot they could do... More

I apologise about the behaviour of this staff member on the night in question. This certainly will not happen again as the Staff member mentioned is no longer with us. However all the other hard working and pleasant staff that you have come to know are. More
