Reviewed April 7, 2013

This is a review of the restaurant, not the B&B.

We visited at 3.30pm for the carvery - a dangerous time, as we've previously found as some of the food can be tired.

Not here. Excellent choice of meat and vegetables and you also get a choice of small (2 slices), medium (3 slices) or large (4 slices). If you want room for one of their £2.95 puddings, I'd recommend the small or medium. I had medium, and still didn't have room.

All in all a very good carvery, and I think we may return during the week.
