Typical pub chain food which was acceptable. On the carvery I noticed the beef was well overdone. Clean surroundings, good service and pleasant staff. .Prices were reasonable.

Having just travelled down from Scotland in the snow, we needed something hot and filling as we was shattered.... Been a few years since we had been in The Mallard and I am glad we went back. Carvery was just what we needed. They offer...More
