The best Sunday lunch

Love the sunday lunch here, great value for money and definitely a filler. You won't go hungry and a good choice of menu. Visit regularly.

It was fairly busy but not packed and a little eye contact is a basic customer service skill. The food looked great but after 5 minutes of being invisible we... More

The tour and the beer are very good, I've been 3 times in the past and the food has never disappointed, in summer there is a lovely beer garden with plenty of space for kids to play and for grown ups to sample the local ale, they also have popular lagers and spirits to drink should you be that way...

This is a a lovely place to visit after your tour. Food is locally sourced and very tasty. You get to try various beers, or a soft drink with your tour ticket so it works out quite a reasonable price.

Quite a large dining area on 2 floors. It looks like a carvery but is served at your table. Good portions of meat, and you can have a choice of two so I had the lamb and pork. Both were excellent and moist. Good vegetables, on the al dente side, with really good gravy. Service was also very friendly and... More
