When we had my dad's 60th there, (about 10 years ago), the manageress came over and made a real effort so I booked... More

We were shown to our seats and chirpy chappie came to take our... More

We had our Silver Wedding anniversary there last night - there were 22 of us and the staff couldn't have looked after us better, they gave us a great service. The food was very good quality, hot, tasty, all brought out on time and we were asked if we wanted any more servings of potatoes and veg. After the meal,... More
