Went with the family on sunday - the roast was insane! Great portions, and a great selection of veg (cauliflower cheese, red cabbage, carrots, swede) with excellent lamb and amazing Yorkshire’s! Yum yum yum.

A good spread and hassle free event under difficult circumstances. Couldn’t fault it - very sensitive and accommodating. Many visits to this establishment and didn’t disappoint.
