Was dragged here by some friends and could not really refuse.... I had read up here on tripadvisor so I was prepared for the worst and ... the previous reviews are true. We found ripped seats, sticky tables, bland food, the whole place desperately needs rennovating inside. There were children running around everywhere, the service was not good either. Will... More

Ate here as its a lovely place and menu is good value. We usually have a Lilly serve us and I must say her service is brilliant. Unfortunately she was not here on this visit and you could tell. Meals were hot and cooked really nice but just wasn't a great atmosphere in here just felt like our custom wasn't... More

Not enough staff meant very long wait to order, even longer to get meal and an age to get a dessert that was not worth eating. Stale bread with a prawn cocktail, cold fries and only carvery vegetables with main meal, pudding was lacking in flavour, supposed to be a brandy sauce, not a whiff of brandy! We would normally...

I was in a large party. As several other people have commented, the tables were sticky - using a spray not an excuse for them to be like that. I opted for the carvery - thought this was very good: turkey was moist and plenty of it, nice range of veg - but no brussels! Even the yorkshire pudding was... More
