“Always great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

Been using this restaurant for about 15 years, a typical toby carvery, always good value, can be made cheaper as there are sometimes vouchers for the extras like ice cream but even without this it is always good value with relatively cheap drinks as well. No bookings so dont expect to get seated quickly on busy times/days.

“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

It is a carvery, but because it is very busy all the food is fresh and reasonable quality. The pub is always busy and it is what it says on the tin, if you want a good old fashioned roast with all the veg at a reasonable price this is quite good. This is not a fancy restaurant just good food at a good price.

“Good Value - Could do with a Clean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

I visit this particular Toby Carvery about twice a month for the last year. I always find the restaurant to be good value with friendly staff and tasty food. You get a choice of 3 meats - always Gammon, Turkey and Beef with a choice of Lamb as well on a sunday. The veg is always fresh and great yorkshires. The desserts are excellent as well - especially the honeycomb smash.The restaurant is always busy of a night but have never had to wait for a table. On a sunday it is another thing altogether. You will be waiting up to 2 hours on a sunday for a table. The only problem with the restaurant is the cleanliness. The tables are always sticky and the glasses and cutlery are ofter dirty. The restaurant could also do with installing some dimmer switches the lights are always fully on. Overall worth a visit for a cheap tasty dinner - just expect a bit of dirt.
