I have visited the restaurant many times so time to write a review. Thsi time I asked for the VEgetarian choice and it was clear from the outset that they were not ready to fulfil my order. Honesty would have been the best policy, instead I was asked to wait for 5 minutes which turned out to be more like between 15-20. I was with about 15 friends so not ideal watching others eat while waiting. The carvery staff appeared harassed and they constantly ran out of food. There was no interaction between the staff and the diners, and food was slapped down rather unpleasantly. A popular place. Do the management think that they don't have to try because they are bust all the time? I hope not

If you are looking for a value meal and a carvery then this does what it says. It may not be the best quality food but a good range of traditional meat dishes and veg. Staff fairly pleasant.

Joints were well cooked, amazingly large Yorkshire puddings and good variety of vegetables. Desserts a little disappointing, Eton mess lacked meringue and jam sponge verged on the institutional. However a very pleasant place for a Sunday carvery lunch and even though there were many children in the restaurant it was spacious enough so they did not disturb diners.
