We have meetings here several times a year and they never disappoint. This year we decided to have Christmas Dinner here - what a choice! Everything was spot on and the atmosphere was great. There were 24 in our party, sat at two tables, and the service was very good. The food was excellent, as it has been throughout the... More

We visited here for a family party of 15 people. The restaurant is located in a beautiful part of the world. Once entering there's a old vintage theme, with lots of dark wood paneling. A decent range of drinks. The food was just ok really, no one had a reason to complain, but it was a little bland for many... More

Went there with the family, the carvery looked good but we all had a la carte, I had mixed grill, wife and son had steak and my daughter had a burger, all the food was really good and had a real feel that it was freshly cooked, one of my dislikes of some of the pub chains is that the... More

Sunday evening visit - very full pub. It is pub food but very good quality - very large portions - the carvery did look very good but we chose off the specials board. Very little customer service as the staff are too busy running around - you have to 'grab' a waiter as they dash past. The only downside for... More

We went as a family, and all the children had chicken nuggets.. When we cut into the chicken it was pink and completely raw!! When we tuck it back there was no apology and was very poor service. It ruined our entire night, and to make it worst the chef came out and wasn't happy.. I wouldn't recommend at all,... More

Excellent quality food, massive choice, friendly and efficient service, great beers and other drinks, very large portions. There is very little not to like about this restaurant/pub. My only advice would be to avoid the Sunday lunch, as the place is extremely busy and the self-service (queuing for the buffet) is a bit like being on a cafeteria or works... More

Went on a Tuesday, plenty of people in which is a good sign. My son had an excellent steak and they exchanged the trimmings for a big plate of fresh vegetables without any quibbles. Big portions but good quality food. Felt bad as didn't have any change for a tip,but would certainly go back. Well kept range of real ale... More
