As my heading says, been many times on a Sunday, very busy but they usually manage to fit us in. Not tried the food otherwise so can't help there but if you're looking for a homemade Sunday lunch the Half Moon is the place to go.

Very ordinary-looking pub on a street corner. However, the Sunday lunch here is absolutely first class. Carvery style but very homely with good portions of meat and excellent home cooked vegetables. This is a popular place with locals who obviously know when they are on to a good thing. Warm, friendly and completely unpretentious.
