“Great food; great service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

The best Yorkshire pudding that we had during our entire trip. The food was delicious; especially the turkey. It melted in our mouths! Great service. The prices are phenomenal; good portions; great value. The other customers all seemed to be enjoying themselves as well. Great ambiance!

“Avoid!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Our local Toby Carvery is a nice restaurant but this one is the worse experience I had on all level. The food was very greasy. The vegetarian option was so hard I couldn't even cut it! Every piece of crockery was dirty. The service was appalling and even when we ask for new cups as they were so dirty, we didn't even get an apology. Also the waitress put the bill on the table after our main course even though we didn't ask for it. In fact we wanted a dessert.
Vegetarian beware. The beef gravy is apparently the veggie gravy. Really???

“A guilty pleasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We've done most styles of restaurants from kebab vans to regularly splashing out on 3 Michelin Stars, but more than anything we prize value for money.

The beer is well kept and certainly cheap enough at £2.40 a pint. The carvery can be a bit hit & miss with the finer things like crackling, but for a good value for money belly-filler the food is plentiful and certainly pleasant enough for the cost.

Will be back :)

“Good Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We had an evening meal here, staff very helpful we enjoyed the starter and carvery,
Very much a pub atmosphere, would most certainly go back if in the area again.
Thank you for making it a good evening out.
