Mothering Sunday & Fathers Day

Mothering Sunday - Food good, service poor (but they were very busy,so could be forgiven). Farther's Day - Food good, service worse and they were not very busy!

Visited on a Monday lunchtime with carvery in mind and we weren't disappointed. Choice of meats, cooked very well. Also an extensive choice of veg and spuds, again, well cooked, hot and tasty. And for less than 6 pounds per head, it's great value. Will definitely return.

We called in here on Saturday when passing with our dog. When we walked into the bar entrance, a male member of staff came marching over towards us, shaking his head. He then told us loudly in front of the other customers that dogs were not allowed. He made us feel like criminals as he ushered us out the door.... More

Really disappointed with the service and the food at this restaurant. Not a lot of food and what food you did get it looked like they had thrown it on the plate. As for the service absolutely terrible. Would i visit again sorry no I would not

We stopped off here for a light lunch but when we smelt and saw the carvery we had to have one. Lots of delicious meat and the best roast potatoes, soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. Would highly recommend.

We went in today as a belated Father's Day meal. Apart from being left to wait for about 5 minutes, the service was excellent, the staff were very friendly. We went for the carvery. You are given a choice of meats such as beef, Turkey, gammon, lamb or pork, I had the beef which was delicious as it had just... More
