We went on a Sunday, and it was very busy so booking is recommended, but this did not effect the service which was very quick. We had soup to start a homemade mushroom which actually tasted of mushroom, although a little peppery for our personal taste, served piping hot and with a fresh oven baked roll. There was also a...

For people like me who love a great choice of hors d'oeuvres, a genuinely good carvery and a that dying delight a desert trolley......look no farther than this restaurant! Attentive staff, rural feel and a really buzzing atmosphere, what better way to spend a winters Sunday lunchtime. I have also eaten here in the week, and whilst not so busy... More

He then went through what food was on offer, soup of the day and... More

My partner and I went here tonight, and it was wonderful! The building was beautiful and the food/service was really good! We went for the 3 course option, and all of the meat from the carvery was very tender and the pudding selection was surprisingly good! It was very much worth the money

We stopped in here on our way home and had not pre booked. We had a selection of Hors d'oeuvre to start. There was a good variety on offer. We then moved on to the main course... the roast beef was so succulent and tender you didn't need a knife...all served with a selection of fresh vegetables. It was nice... More

A fantastic welcome and attention to our needs, however after we had had our main course we felt we were being rushed. Two children in our party who were promised sweets from the sweet barrow but by the time we had finished our food the sweet barrow had gone!!! The food however was absolutely brilliant

Called in for a meet up Christmas lunch with my cousin. Very welcoming and seated straight away. Menu choices were good and reasonably priced. Food hot, tasty and plenty of it. We went for the carvery option. Good selection of veg and well cooked. Have agreed to meet there again next year.

I have been to the carvery many times, the food is excellent with limited choice of roasts. They have the best selection of desserts I have seen in a long time. Coffee is an extra charge

You have to be carefull with carverys as the meat and potatoes can dry up. This was a worry of mine when we booked here. Boy was I wrong I opted for the turkey it was not dry at all but very succulent and moist. Lovely fluffy potatoes and a choice of veg. The turkey looked like it could feed... More
