Great food

Went for a carvery Wednesday evening and thoroughly enjoy our food. A lot of new faces since our last visit although the young guy in a blue shirt (looks like management or supervisor) was extremely helpful and an absolute credit to this place. Would definitely return

Love the vegetarian option - cooked to order then chose your own veg from the well stocked carvery . Veggie gravy too. Roast potatoes are tasty and there is always a good choice of veg. Expect to queue during peak season as it's very very popular.

Come here often the staff are always welcoming and always there if you need help, the carvery is superb the meat is cooked to perfection all the time and the gammon is not to salty, the turkey is moist and succulent and the beef melts in the mouth. A fab selection of vegetables and they match them with the seasons... More
