Had a sandwich lunch midweek. They were also offering a carvery so there were a few people in the restaurant. Only one member of staff was taking orders serving in both restaurant and bar and making teas and coffees. She was amazing and remained calm and friendly throughout but was obviously rushed off her feet. The chef was also helping... More

My wife and I visited with friends for an evening meal. We were a large group and had booked the restaurant and were warmly welcomed by the proprietors. We were served by a small team of friendly and courteous staff, always with a smile I enjoyed my main course of freshly cooked lasagne with a good portion of chips and... More

Which is strange with cauliflower cheese! I had to leave a third as a disgrace and did not want to feel ill. Most vegetables tasted of vinegar. The... More

I've used this title as it appears that people are forgetting this when reviewing! The twice my husband spoke on the telephone to staff they were friendly and accommodating.

I booked a coach party for the second time for a carvery after leaving a day in Aberyswyth as it was so good last time , we weren't disappointed. We had another lovely meal with friendly service. We paid £9.00 a head for a good meal and wide choice of desserts.
