18 of us went for lunch yesterday. We were given a room to ourselves the service and food were above and beyond. I will definitely be returning, all home cooked, piping hot and plenty of it. A gem of a place.

Went here for lunch today and it was fantastic. Carvery style with 4 choices of meat and all the trimmings and plenty of well cooked vegetables. Excellent choice of puddings included in the price. All in all, a great choice but be warned you will need to book - it gets quite full and deservedly so.

This was our first visit for drinks after dinner in O Sullivan's. This is a quaint pub and with the decor and seating feels like you are having drinks in someone's sitting room. This pub is cozy and serves food and on the next visit we will definitely try the food.

Nothing fancy, nothing "special" - just a really nice quality Sunday Lunch. Good carvery style meat service with veg to the table. Nice selection of desserts. It's worth EVERY penny! £10 for dinner and dessert! Would definitely go back!
