“Most enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Freshly cooked, locally sourced produce made for a delightful and delicious lunch. It was well worth the 10 mile detour, off the M48. This was our first but definitely not our last.

“Great food, miserable staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

Went here for a family Sunday lunch. Good food but staff were so miserable - they should learn to smile a bit! In fact they made us feel a little unwelcome.

“Very nice...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Went for Sunday Lunch and had the 3 course meal for £17.95 each - had fishcakes, beef roast and chocolate fudge cake - really good portion sizes, not too big for a 3 course and felt pleasantly full afterwards. All courses were lovely and service was incredibly quick. Staff were pleasant and friendly and checked on us regularly. We ate in the bar area which was very quiet as i think the restaurant was full and we hadn't booked or anything - we had no extra wait for food though. Outside area looked really nice and although seemed small (didn't actually see restaurant area) was in a nice way. Had a really lovely time and would probably go back - maybe try out an evening in the week as well :)

“Fantastic Sunday Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Have to say this definitely one of the best Sunday lunches I have had. We were a large party and the staff were excellent. All the food came out piping hot. I can def recommend the fish cakes to start (be ware they are huge) & also the ham hock. Plenty of vegetables and they were more than happy to top up your gravy boat. Desserts were to die for & lots of choice. This was the first time I had visited for food and will definitely be going back.
