Carvery - Excellent food, desserts amazing, homely atmosphere. The roast beef was the best ever. My friends had pork and said that, too, was excellent. The range of desserts make it very difficult to make a choice!!! Only downside was that the lady at front of desk could have been a bit more cheerful and welcoming!

Booked here for 15 people for an evening dinner to celebrate a family 50th birthday. Excellent staff & friendly atmosphere. The Carvery was great - a selection to cover most tastes & a lovely dessert trolley - yum ! A very good venue.
