We decided to call in to see if any tables were free for a bite to eat. We were not disappointed, this was the best Sunday lunch we have had for a long time, this is not just pub grub this is something special! The...environment is ambient, staff really helpful and kind enough to squeeze us in at last minute(can see why you would need to book) The food was outstanding was a fantastic portion size everything you could want. Will definitely return here but with a booking in advance wouldn’t want to be disappointed if I couldn’t get in. Keep up the great work guys your doing brilliant!More

We went for a Christmas meal (pre-ordered) and prawn cocktail starter was really nice, however the main meal, which was a turkey dinner, wasn’t the best. The veg was hard and the mash was lumpy, however the stuffing and roasties were nice. Not only this,...the restaurant was packed. We couldn’t even get to the bar, despite having booked this meal far in advance, therefore we had limited drinks. Those who were crowding the bar had no masks on either, which was a major concern as it was only a couple of days before Christmas. It’s a shame we weren’t placed in the quiet restaurant area when we booked the meal over a month in advance. Our waitress however was very friendly and helpful.More

What a fantastic Sunday roast myself and my daughter had this Sunday 24th October. We have been before in the year and decided to have another on our recent trip up to see family. All I can say is if your up that way try...and get there for your lunch/dinner ours was fabulous. The beef was great plenty of vegetables,roasties and a big jug of extra gravy. Service was really good anything seemed no trouble Price wise try and find anywhere as reasonable for the food you get We as a family will definitely be back again when we venture up’t north again FantasticMore
