Our premises is very old (700 hundred with little windows and... More

This has to be without doubt, the best place for carvery ever! (and I have been to a few). The food is fresh and tasty and there's also quite a bit of choice; three meats, roast potatoes, boiled potatoes, garlic potatoes, roast parsnip, mashed swede, cauliflower cheese, peas, carrots, cabbage, yorkie puddings, gravy and a choice of table sauces. Can't... More
