Decent Sunday roast and an unexpected two for one deal on them after 16:00 - would have been rude not to. Big plates, lovely yorkshires and plenty of meat - especially if you go for the mixed meat option. Good humoured service as well -...More

We all enjoyed a very good meal today. Our waitress (Gemma) was extremely helpful and pleasant and went out of her way to accommodate our every need. As a result, we all thoroughly enjoyed the time spent there today.
