Fast efficient service. Quantities breathtaking. Pub grub but not fine dining if that's what you are looking for.

I have eaten here a few times and have always enjoyed the very generous portions of delicious food. The staff are very friendly too.

I have eaten here three times in the last six months. I am over 60, my wife is not, so we have sampled 3 over-60 specials and 3 "normal" meals. There was only one disappoinment out of 12 courses, the chicken tikka masala, which was simply tikka masala sauce poured over chunks of chicken breast - but even then, the amount of chicken was more than you'd get in a regular curry elsewhere!

The menu is vast (suggesting there must be a microwave involved occasionally!), but the portions are generous and the prices very realistic. There is always a variety of beer and the place is open for food from noon til 9.00 pm.

The service is efficient, the Mere is just round the corner and the only downside is that on a Sunday you will need to book or wait a (long) while, but that only accentuates what a great place it is to have lunch, particularl;y on a Sunday.

Recommended.
