Went here for a late sunday lunch (5pm ish) the other day. We weren't sure how pricey things would be, since it just re-opened, but saw on facebook that a "hearty" Sunday lunch is £12, or a "room for pudding" portion is £8, so though it sounded ok. Extremely glad we went for it, as it was one of the best Sunday meals I've ever had.
There were three roast meats available (pork loin, beef, lamb), something veggie, fish and chips, or steaks available, so not a huge list of choices, but it looked like thought had been put into each option to get it just right.
I had lamb, and husband had pork, and both were delicious. I was glad that everything, not just beef, came with Yorkshires, and the veg sides were roast carrot, swede, parsnip & potatoes, on the plate, with red cabbage and french beans, and a leek, mushroom & cheese mixture (they ran out of cauliflower cheese), to serve yourself. So not counting potatoes, we got 7 different types of veg, which was really nice.
In all honesty, the only thing I could possibly fault was I couldn't see the difference between the portion sizes really. I think my 'small' was one huge slice of lamb, husband's 'big portion was two big slices or pork. That's not even so much a fault, but I would personally spend the extra few pounds on buying a starte instead next time, because presumably you get the same amount of veg and things regardless of which size you pick, so the only difference was how many slices of meat you get.
We both had room for pudding, and were not sure because they started at about £6, up to about £7.5, which I think is quite a lot, but the main was such good value we tried it anyway. However, the flavours and presentation were so good it was worth it. I had a lime cheesecake, topped withh bitter chocolate ice cream, which was served in a little kilner jar with a brandy snap, and he had apple and caramel eton mess. Both looked and tasted great.
Servers were very polite and friendly but not annoyingly so. We felt we got checkbacks often enough, but without feeling interrupted too much. The new decor is something I would describe as 'black, white and sparkly', which might not be to everyone's taste but makes for interesting things to look at if you only popped in for drinks. There is a life-size wooden zebra in the dining area, for example.
Overall I would definitely go back. I have seen they have a two-course lunch deal that looks good value so I will probably be looking to try that out next time I visit.
