Called in for Sunday lunch and were lucky to find a table as several people were having to wait or find somewhere else! Many reserved tables indicated this was a popular establishment. We hadn't visited for nearly two years and the décor was a nice improvement. We noticed other people being served their meals and noted that presentation was very different to our last visit, square plates, chips served in mini chip -frying baskets on the plate which you just tip out yourselves, baby-leaf salad instead of veg. The menu was missing several choices we used to enjoy but we ordered our meals and were impressed with the friendliness of the staff. The 2 for 1 on main courses meant that the increase in prices since our last visit worked out about average for local eateries, although portions weren't as great on the meals we had. The roast dinners were very generous portions from what we saw so at just under £14, the 2 for 1 deal was excellent value.
We both enjoyed our meals and the ambiance but missed the homeliness of the way meals were served previously. The modern trend of serving food in little receptacles admittedly, looks smart but we preferred the whole meal on the plate, the portions used to be more substantial, as we remember, having selected the same meal this time as we chose last visit.
Nevertheless, we will return for a roast dinner soon, good value for money there!
A thank you to the lovely staff for their hospitality.
Pleasant location and lots of parking.
