I'm really surprised by the bad reviews. We stumbled upon this place for the first time on Good Friday. The menu is really good, lots of choice, and with all the meals you have the use of a salad bar (which was really good and fresh!!) and usual carvery sides. All the staff were lovely, especially Mary who made us... More

Dani wasn't even on duty but she chipped in to make other diners feel comfortable. Our whole group enjoyed the day and will be returning... More

Staff here are good and so is the food, however on the more expensive side of pub food! Only complaint is when the football is on they still continue to play music as well, which is a big pet peeve of mine! But lovely place with a good vibe and nice food!

This place looks great since the refurb and some of staff are really good, just thought the food wasn't that good at all, plus having to wait 40mins for the carvery to be set up...

Excellent value - a standard carvery plus pudding plus a pint of shandy all for under £10! Plenty of choice of vegetables. Good atmosphere and pleasant staff.
