Enjoyed all of the meal

I took my parents and mother in law along with the wife and kids. Every plate clean after several visits. Food was excellent several different choices. I will return 2 excellent visits. Didn't see any of the negativity on some other reviews

Seriously don't waste the petrol getting here! They don't take cards only cash. All the food is clearly bought from Tesco next door!! The food tray's are only 2 inches deep so that's how busy they are! There are 6 main dishes. Starters include onion rings, cocktail sausages and hash browns. The dessert is 2 types of Mr Kipling cakes... More
