“What a Cracker!”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

Visited Helen's for the first time in ages. We took my parent's for their first try. The five of us enjoyed every bit of it. Mam had the garlic mushrooms, she said they were outstanding. Dad & my fiancé both had home made leak and potato soup this was delicious (I had a taste).

Mains was plentiful, hot and very very good. Two had beef, two had pork, one had turkey... All accompanied with a huge home made yorkshire pud, peas, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, roast potatoes and her signature ultra creamy mashed potato and plenty of lovely gravy.

My daughter was over the moon with her Krispy Kreme donut and the other half chose home made lemon cheesecake... It was HUGE, and the best I've ever tasted! (Of course, i had to taste it!)

Well done Helen, keep up the excellent work.

“Helen's - superb!”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Recently visited with my Husband, and i have to say it's one of the nicest places i've been to in ages. The Pulled pork was to dye for and my husbands steak was cooked to perfection. The real chips really are amazing and nothings overpriced! Staff were warm and welcoming with a really relaxed atmosphere! Definitely recommended to all!!
