I have been to the Ye Olde Punch Bowl many times and have always had a good carvery and excellent service. The young lady that serves behind the bar is wonderful. My wife is disabled and she can never do enough for us. It is much appreciated. Michael.

The service was excellent and we shall definitely... More
