Really good lunch except for the mad women who was shouting because she could not get a table as all reserved.I think she was drunk or on drugs.But she was soon shown... More

From the phone call to book for our party of eight, to the last mouthful of food, this was a delightful experience. The charming and friendly service was outstanding and the care shown for the disabled seniors in the group was terrific. The surroundings were quiet and peaceful and we were not rushed in any way. The food was delicious... More

I couldn't fault the Carvery - excellent meat, well cooked. Very nicely cooked vegetables. We opted for a starter and that did not disappoint. Wine - a little stingy but adequate. Service was OK, but they were clearly a bit overstretched. The dining room lacked atmosphere however and felt a little 'old people's home-like'. Value excellent though and would go... More

I received a voucher through my door for a carvery offer. Having never been before I thought I'd give it a try. Cannot fault the experience. From the second we entered the restaurant to the second we left the service was brilliant, friendly and attentive. Very good up selling skills by our server. Will be returning for another carvery soon... More

We came to Sunday Lunch as part of the weekends celebration of our grandsons 18th Birthday and we weren't disappointed. I am a powered wheelchair user and every effort was made to make me welcome by the charming staff. The food was well cooked and presented with ample servings of meat and vegetables. The service was efficient but unhurried. Without... More

Of the 4 Christmas lunches we have had during December, this was the poorest - and really only achieved the "average" rating because the starters and desserts were "OK".......the turkey and vegetables were pretty bland and, unfortunately, "poor"
