Old fashioned service - efficient and pleasant in comfortable surroundings. Such a relaxing and enjoyable meal, particularly compared to the dreadful sea front carvery experience of the previous day. A good value roast dinner - hot and appetising served quickly and excellent value. The coffee afterwards was superb. It does get very busy - deservedly so.
