Went here for a Sunday roast and it was spot on!! There was a group of us, who all enjoyed it as much as myself, where we played pool and darts all afternoon. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Would definitely go back there again x

Hi Bill & Debbie Lomas, I have tried calling, emailing & Facebooking you. Please see the email / Facebook message sent. There is an apology, explanation & offer of a free meal as compensation for your Valentines night disappointment.
