Excellent food but far too much meat, which I struggled to eat. Everything was cooked to perfection and was extremely tasty. However, the selection of cooked vegetables was limited to carrots & cabbage; whilst very tasty there was much more emphasise on the various joints of meat.The salmon starter was a little disappointing as no dressing or even a wedge...

The standard of food is just amazing. The carvery is highly recommended. Just ashame the decor is so dark and very dated. It needs a revamp. The prices are high but then you get freshly prepared food throughout the menu.

Actually I started going when I was a little girl with my parents and have been going ever since - some thirty years. In that time I have gone with parents, family, friends, boyfriends and than with work colleagues. The service has always been excellent, and the food is just delicious from the starters, the carvery is the best I've... More

A delightfully quirky restaurant layout provides a homely backdrop to simple foods cooked beautifully. They take rightful pride in walking you through the selection of meats. I say selection but they will happily pile your plate high with all of them before you've had a chance to survey the huge beef, pork and turkey, homemade sausages, crackling, smoked turkey +...

I went here with my husband for the three course meal and we were not disappointed. The staff were great and friendly and the place has a pleasant atmosphere. The carvery was beautiful. The only thing we were not keen on was the pudding as it didn't seem fresh but otherwise a lovely meal. We will be returning!

we visited for a wedding anniversary on a Thursday. since it was in the week you could choose 1 2 or 3 courses. I went for all 3. The pate to start is delicious and comes with enough toast. The carvery I chose beef and Turkey (this was so nice it melted in your mouth) and filled my plate with... More

Great food as always. Only issue i fimd is that you have to have the set 3 courses. Would be nice to have the option of just the carvery.
