Situated alongside the M1 motorway, we expected the restaurant to be noisy, but it wasn't. The food was excellent, medium priced, for this sort of thing. Not pub grub but freshly cooked food to good standard. Pleasant but being upstairs, not suitable for disabled im afraid.

We pre-booked after a day of sightseeing in the area. Arrived just about on time and was greeted warmly by the waiting staff and shown immediately to our table. The staff were attentive without being intrusive, leaving the menu, lighting the candle and serving. The menu has an impressive choice and we opted for mushroom starters and one steak and... More

Went to the old post office today with my husband after being recommended by friends. We both ordered the two course lunch for £10.50 which seemed a really good deal. I ordered the prawn cocktail and my husband ordered garlic mushrooms to start. The prawns had a taste i didn't enjoy and the sauce didn't taste like a classy Marie... More

I had the steak pie for main the pastry was undercooked and virtually inedible. The service was ok but staff need training on how to deal with complaints overall... More
