Visited here for lunch today with the other half. I'd been once before and had liked it & thought he might too. The carvery smelt lovely as we came in, but we decided to opt for good off the main menu. I ordered The Mexican Burger and hubby ordered the Piri Piri chicken. When the food arrived it was nice....

Slight improvement since the last time we visited. Very noisy with children running around unsupervised. We had to stop a little boy getting his hand crushed in a fire door the children were opening and slamming shut right next to our table. Staff should have stopped this but didn't seem to care. Food was acceptable and the wait wasn't too... More

The carvery offered a choice of meat - beef, pork and turkey. Great Yorkshire pudding and a selection of vegetables. The pub was... More

However, we went "large" with the roast lunch, U could choose between pork, turkey and beef or try all 3. I had turkey, my husband had both the other 2 meats. Then we had stuffing, massive Yorkshires and... More
