“Changed the menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Used to go every Sunday for traditional Sunday Lunch but it's changed so much now. Keep trying it but not going again.
Dauphinoise potatoes and red cabbage is just NOT Sunday lunch. It's mash!!!!!

“Good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

WE stayed in the travel lodge next door so made good use of the pub to have breakfast. The staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was of a good standard and was brought to us quickly after ordering, it was also very good value for money.

“Go for the Carvery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

I had been told the carvery was good ...and I have been there twice now and it is excellent!

I always get a "mix" of the meat and they are always spot on ....the staff are very friendly too.
Only downside is the plates are a little small (as they sometimes can be on self service) and by the time you have finished getting your meat and veggies on there; you will find you are teetering back to your seat ...and then BE CAREFUL as one fork in the wrong place and your Yorkshire pud will fly across the bar area ...Like mine did! ..

So all in all ...great food at a great price ...but the plates are far too small

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Excellent carvery but staff serving the food need to put a smile on their face & look at customers when speaking to them. So miserable. Bar staff friendly.
