Arrived at 7-15pm. Order wasn't taken until 7-45pm. Main meal finally arrived at 8-45pm! It was a soggy, greasy mass. Won't be going back. Service was very slow. Shame as this was supposed to be a special meal with our daughter.

Been here 3-4 times now and everytime I've had something different. Food and staff are outstanding. I would recommend the Flying Scotsman or Steak and Ale pie.
