Despite not booking,a table was found for us. The ambience and decor was just right. The menu was varied with something for everyone supplementedith a specials board. Not advised how long the food would be but after 40 minutes we were each served with a delicious tasty meal from lasagne to steak. Everything seemed to be home cooked and was... More

Lots of selection on the menu (though perhaps a few more veggie dishes could be added? There are a couple but a few more wouldn't hurt). The staff were really friendly. The food we... More

Had a lovely carvery here, staff great. Really made to feel welcome. Nice atmosphere, and really well worth a visit. Couldn't fault the food, given plenty of meat by the chef, who was a friendly fellow. Half the plate was piled up with gorgeous beef. Told to help ourselves to veg of which there was everything you needed plus more.... More
