Situated conveniently at the end of the 606 my friend and I decided to try this relatively new venue for lunch as the Black Bull at Birstall was not open for dining during the afternoon. Like most of these pub/restaurant institutions it was spacious and busy without being overcrowded. The staff were friendly and welcoming . Always a good sign. My friend went down the carvery route and came back with a plateful of seasonal vegetables and a substantial portion of carved meats. I was more adventurous and went for the lamb stew which had been well sold on the menu. While the food was edible the portion seemed somewhat parsimonious and not as exciting as described on the menu. I had more or less consumed my meal before my friend returned from the carvery. . I ordered some delightful cheesecake and devoured it while my friend continued to plough through his substantial portion which was described as excellent value for money. A return trip is not ruled out but I will ignore the rest of the menu and wend my way to the carvery.
