... we booked for 6.30pm as I had a long drive home. The dining room was cold; eventually a fan heater was put in the room. We all chose the lamb shanks, which were potentially delicious but tough. To be fair, one was exchanged and...More

We had a delicious meal here with friends on Saturday night and despite being very busy the food was superb and the service attentive without being over bearing. We shall definitely be back for a family Sunday lunch very soon!

First visit to the Tuns since it exchanged hands ... and well worth it. The staff couldn’t have been friendlier or more helpful, and the food was delicious. Steak was cooked perfectly and a wonderful flavour, lamb equally tasty. Will be back for sure.
