10 of us had the carvery on Sunday. One chicken and 9 beef. No one finished their meal as it was just awful. Nothing was cooked from fresh. The beef was sandwich beef and the chicken turned out to be nuggets. The rest of the food on the plate was cooked from frozen...frozen veg, potatoes and Yorkshire pudding. Gravy was Bisto and hot water I think.

Would not recommend to anyone.

Went to try the food here, as have only had a drink before, we had a sharing platter to start with, between two of us, and had ordered cheese and bacon paninis and chips as a main course, not knowing how much food you get, well it was more than enough. Food was cooked beautifully, piping hot, the chicken strips on the platter were especially lovely. Drinks are on a par price wise with any local pub, will definitely be eating there again.

Pleasant but not exciting. The staff were friendly but we were the only people dining on a mid week lunchtime. The food was a good average. The other guests comprised 3 guys discussing the football.

i went here on a Tues night for a committee meeting dinner there was a group of 16/17 of us and all with different choice of meals which we had chosen beforehand. My meal was cooked to perfection, lovely and hot and plenty of it. everyone was very impressed with the service We were all looked after well with drinks etc. I would highly recommend giving this a try. I will definitely be going back again
