Best carvery I have ever had ! It was extremely busy and the bar staff were under immense pressure, but they handled it well and were professional and courteous. The only fault was the state of the toilets (womens). Two out of the five toilets...More

This place surpassed my expectations. Many options for vegetarians of classic dishes. I had the veg roast in a giant yorkie and its not many places I've seen that do a meal like that. Surroundings are relaxing. The slices of cake are huge. We couldnt...More
