Shown to our table by friendly and welcoming staff. Drinks ordered and left in peace to make our selections, then service was excellent. Food delivered on time and piping hot, excellent quality and plenty of it, chips for those who had them particularly delicious. Made a fuss of me for my birthday and made it a special occasion, highly recommended.

Have been here a few times now and each time the food has been amazing. It's located just off the A19 and is a gem of a place. It's good value for money. Never had a bad meal here. Go and try it yourself. You'll not be disappointed

We'd booked for 1pm and when we arrived there was a queue out of the door of people that had also booked. The queue for food was enormous and the person allocating tables ignored those that had booked and allocated tables to those that had turned up on spec. What was arranged as an anniversary meal gorcelderly parents left us... More

Absolutely gorgeous Sunday lunch!! Would recommend to anybody, one of the best I've had. Service was brilliant and really nice staff.
