Popped in here Sunday. To check it out after changing hands again. No change in decor, busy enough, plenty of seating, and quite busy. Ordered 3 meals, good service, reasonable prices. Less that £30 including drinks. Will visit again and try the carvery next time.

We arrived hoping for a nice carvery. We must have arrived as the food was coming to an end. The bar was covered in glasses, tables needed cleaning and the carvery looked dry.
