Sampled 2 of the Mediterranean buffet nights now and both nights have been superb. Lovely selection of food catering for all tastes and fantastic live music to follow. Thursday nights should be spent in Shadforth!

First time visiting since pub reopened. Monday evening, so it was very quiet, but couldn't fault anything. Both meals were really tasty (Thai green chicken curry & gammon steak). Portion size was just right. Service was great. We will be returning.
