We had the Carvery meal today and the food was good as was the service. The price was excellent at under £30 for four adult meals with drinks. Will definitely go back.

Since I last visited, the Trawlerman has introduced a new system of 3 different plate sizes. You simply pay a price for the size of plate you want. Small (children), medium or large. I think its much better than the old system where you paid a bit more money for a bit more meat on the same plate! Consistent quality,... More

Can't speak highly enough of this Marstons pub. Carvery good quality with excellent choice of sweets in a cabinet to choose from. Pint of lovely kept real ale Hobgoblin 4.5% at only £2.80. Can get busy so don't get stressed in the carvery queue as the meal is worth it xx

The staff could not be more accommodating, there were 13 of us in total and they found us great seats, the food was wonderful and the price was unbelieveable.

We visited on Easter Sunday... it was very busy but they squeezed us in without any fuss. 4 adults and 1 child and we all had the carvery which was delicious with an excellent choice of vegetables. The bar had an excellent selection of ales, beers and ciders. We are only down for the weekend but if we visit again... More
