We visited this restaurant on a friends recommendation and we weren't disappointed. The quality of the food was evident while everyone's steaks were cooked to perfection. The furniture was tired however the restaurant is refurbishing in February. A very special treat and we are already planning another visit.

The staff were lovely however a young lady did nearly forget to take my drink order! I had garlic mushrooms and a burger to eat. The mushrooms... More

Husband had steak and ale pie the gravy was delish! Hand cut fat chips are a must! The table next to us ordered fries and were gutted when they saw our chips!... More

Wanted to do here for quite a while and never been able to get a table since we're quite a large party. We've been today for my mothers birthday and absolutely loved it, I'm quite a fussy eater but there's something for everyone, Homemade Yorkshire Pudding for starter with the best gravy, cut your own steak for main (which can...

The four of us lunch out regularly. First time here, very impressed with the food and service. Three of us had the beef and mushroom pie, very tasty, prices OK. Handy for the M1. Will go again.

Three of us visited on 18th January for my birthday meal and had a warm welcome from friendly staff. The starters were many and varied, two sauces offered with the fresh mussels which arrived in a large pot complete with lid to house shells. Main course was steak, which is brought out as a joint to your table and you... More
