Four of us went for Sunday lunch (booking is a must) very busy but a member of staff greeted us asked us to take a comfy seat and brought our drinks. A few minutes later our table was ready. Everything was explained to us, specials black board, menu given and of course sunday roast, turkey, beef or pork. We all... More

Meal for eight. 45 minutes to be served, lasagna was cold in the middle, despite waitress objections, and the star of the night: my Diet Coke came with the cover of the tap inside the glass...we avoided to ask for desserts just in case to find something else...45 more minutes...still waiting for the bill...to be continued.

Met a friend here couple of nights ago. Had the Postmans menu, 2 courses £13:50. Enough to choose from & portions were plentiful. Staff were very pleasant & helpful. Service was good, not too fast & not too slow. I would highly recommend a visit.

Friends had said the food was excellent. My first visit in 8 years. The food was plentiful but just ok. I had lasagne which was dry, not much taste. It looked as if it had been cooked then reheated. The service was excellent. If you are wanting a big pub meal for not much money then this would be the... More

I have visited here before. Over a year or so has passed since and I'm pleased to report we were still happy with our family experience. Parking good, disabled excess may be difficult but there may be a system in place that I am not aware of. We visited on Sunday and booked a table for 1700, arriving at 1705... More

A family occasion brought us together to this cosy & bustling place. All our food was enjoyed by all of our family. My grand daughter had to choose an alternative starter from the crab she would have preferred but appreciated that the food is fresh & home made as opposed to frozen, reheated fast food & was happy with her...

A few of our party had steak and being able to chose your size is a brilliant idea so you get to choose exactly how much you would like to eat. Overall we had a fabulous night out and would... More

Went to the old post office recently with friends. Hadn't been for many years and very impressed with the changes. Decor very good, service excellent and a very varied menu. Had paella which was top class. Dessert was amazing as well. Will go again as the steaks are gaining a very good reputation!
