We experienced the fantastic value steak night. Steak and 500ml wine £25 for 2 including sides. Sauces extra at £2pp. The rump steak was tender and succulent. Staff were friendly and attentive. Good atmosphere.

Celebrating a birthday party. Superb weather and lovely marquee set on lawn. Lots of tables and seating and children's play area that was much enjoyed by the young people. Brilliant Buffett served which could not be faulted and again enjoyed by all present.

I don't think there's a Childs menu but the staff are very friendly and I am sure they would Accommodate any requests. My portions are always to large but my dog doesn't seem to mind.
