Shocking Service

The visit to this establishment did not start off well as we arrived through the front door only to be told to wait as someone would see to us. The person who told us to wait then went on to talk to his colleagues around him and took phone calls whilst we stood there a good 10 minutes. We should... read more

We stopped here on our way back from Exeter. The food was amazing. Really tasty and lots of veg and three meats to choose from. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We will return for sure.

On Sunday carvery prices nearly double compared to midweek and portions seem to be reduced. One slice of beef and two very small pieces of Turkey means we will not return.

We attended a family party and were not told we all had to have Carvery and as the last time we had it, it wasn't very nice we asked if we could choose something on the normal menu! The manger got very rude and aggressive and even started throwing things around! Every time we approached the bar for a drink... More

4 of us. 2 of our choices not available. Waiter suggested if we didn't want cavery its best to come on a Thursday or Friday! Opted for carvery instead but vege was cold and roast potatoes soggy also. Stuffing like cardboard and gravy cold. Refused to eat or pay for the food. Very disappointing We won't visit again

Following my grandson's Baptism we had a fairly large group lunch on Sunday July 12th. Sophie went above and beyond to give us a memorable experience. The adults, family and friends all seemed to enjoy the carvery which we were invited to after all of our children's meals had arrived as ordered. We could not have been better looked after.... More
