No fancy, for the sake of it, decoration here (apart from on some of the desserts maybe) just well presented, excellently cooked hearty food which is provided in very decently sized portions. The warm black pudding, stilton and bacon salad starter was very tasty and recommended for those who desire a dose... More

... no time to linger over a great roast Sunday lunch. The staff work effectively and swiftly to deliver an excellent meal: good food served very hot and excellent value for money. If the 'restroom' facilities matched the meal and service then I would have awarded five stars.

Returned after a 12 month break, still as good as ever. Service brilliant, the food was superb, the wait between courses was just right, all in all a great night out for the two of us. If only it was my local - still I suppose waiting made it all the more worth while. Thanks to all

Food was good but service was a bit erratic. Our order was not taken correctly and we had to ask repeatedly for drinks, plus could hear the staff flapping and moaning.
