The food was very tasty and the staff were friendly. My friend and i both had a mixed grill which was a hearty meal for even the biggest of appetites.

Nothing to moan about at all. Really enjoyed food and atmosphere. Visited for my birthday as did at least 2 other parties at the same time. Would recommend you book a table though lots of people unable to get seated.

Since having new owners this has gone downhill. On our latest visit I went to the toilet not at all nice the toilets stink. We had the Saturday deal 2 courses the meals were fine except why does everywhere now insist on serving food on paper on a board, just hate it. The other problem is the speed of service... More

Beef wasn't real, frozen veg, frozen Yorkshire, thin gravy. Roast potatoes soggy and oozing with grease. Dinner was just warm and not an enjoyable dining experience😞
