“Fantastic vaule and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

My partner and I visited for a quick lunch and chose from their lunch deal menu - lots of choices and all under ten pounds. We chose the burger and club sandwich and the quality was excellent. The portion sizes for lunchtime were just right. The waiter looked after us really well - even gave our dog a biscuit. Lots of places don't allow dogs inside but they were really friendly and welcoming. Cannot recommend this place enough.

“Perfection on a plate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

WOW. This has to be one of the best meals that I've ever had. And definitely the best Sunday Dinner I've EVER EVER EVER had. It was unreal and cooked to perfection. We had the family sharing roast (which you need to pre-order) and I'm so glad that I did. The beef was sensational and the roast potatoes amazing (wish there had been more potatoes as you couldn't get enough of them). We struggled to eat all of the meat as there was loads (we were a party of 2 females and 2 males) so we took the left overs home and cannot wait to eat that tonight (we dined there yesterday) - it's a good 50 minutes away from home but I will definitely go back very very soon to try out the rest of the menu. Unreal. Book up and visit there now!!

“good food and beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Always good quality food, freshly prepared. The Yorkshire rhubarb and parkin trifle is very much recommended! And don't forget a pint of Landlord.
