five of us went to The Dolphin for their carvery on Easter Sunday lunchtime. The food was excellent, three choices of meat, plenty of veg, roasties and yorkshires, gravy. A plateful to satisfy anyone. The staff are friendly and approachable and we had a really...More

I'd heard good things about the carvery but it's not something that I eat. It looked really good and those that had it, enjoyed it. Another friend and I chose from the menu. My lasagne was tasty with a nice salad however the garlic bread...More

Visited for an evening meal on a Friday . We walked into an empty restaurant and were told we could have any table....none were booked which was a bit disconcerting. We decided to have Gunness and the landlady said it would be a few minutes...More
