It was quiet, but we had booked. Great service, food, and drink (excellent Marstons Pedigree!). Highly recommend, but bound to be busy during holiday season.

Accommodating staff who were more than willing to assist. Great to have ample vegetarian choices to go with the carvery along with other menu options. Staff ready to answer questions without making you feel like a nuisance. Hot food. well presented. great experience. To be recommended.

20 family members met on a Saturday tea time. There were all ages and every single person had a good time and loved the food which was good and excellent value for money. Even the picky eaters cleared their plates. The staff were excellent too, just the right level of service. Would recommend and will certainly return.

Called in here with a friend for lunch. After having the normal carvery followed by a huge pudding the last time that we called and finding we were stuffed for the rest of the afternoon, we opted for the small plate carvery and desert for £4.49. As you would expect the plate and amount of meat you were served was... More

So we had salmon and root veg pie (which was massive) respectively. Everyones meals were superb, from the starters to the mains and puddings. No being rushed to finish, believe... More
