Great lunch-time choice

It's been 4 years since we'd been here, and we were pleased that it was as good as we remembered it. Parking is a little trickier, as there are a few yellow lines, but we parked very near. (I believe there is a car park at the back.) It was a Tuesday, and we hadn't booked, but they fitted us... read more

A wonderful restaurant with a peaceful environment made perfectly to coincide with a classically British pub menu. After visiting the Saunders arms pub in Rockingham, I was made aware of its 'sister pub', being this one, and I decided visit. After dining with friends over lunch I decided it was the perfect place to book my mothers 60th birthday, and... More

Had to book in advance as this place gets extremely busy. Had the Sunday carvery which you had to queue for along with many others, which is placed in a very small area so other diners are overlooked with the people queuing which can be quite off putting in my opinion. The carvery serving area is just not big enough... More
