As this was the weekend before Christmas they had a special menu option . On noticing a turkey dinner being delivered i decided on this as it looked good... More

We dined here while staying overnight. The bar area was very cosy and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was sooooo good. Lovely soup, and a very tasty pie and all too filling to even try a dessert unfortunately.

Went to dine with friends and was pleasantly surprised at the extensive Menu Meals to suit most pallets. Great choice of wines at a reasonable price . Efficient staff and food served piping hot Down side and only a personal view Lighting very dim and was difficult to read the menu However wont stop us returning

Visited on the 26th November for lunch. The staff were very nice and welcoming. The restaurant was lovely and warn on a very cold day. The food was lovely and the service was fast. We waited no time for the food to arrive. Thought the soft drinks we had were quite expensive . Would definitely go back.

Second time at this restaurant for Sunday lunch. The first time was probably the best Sunday roast we had ever had in a restaurant. A great piece of beef, stunning gravy, great Yorkshire puddings (got an extra one), crispy roast potatoes, fresh vegetables. Absolutely scrumptious. Now, contrast that with today. My wife went for the roast beef again but I... More
