Our Christmas Eve Swedish Smorgasbord dinner at the De La Pole was brilliant start to our Christmas weekend. After an amazing variety of pickled herrings, prawns, red cabbage, pate, and breads for starters we had a choice of roasted ham, meatballs, mashed potatoes and cranberry...stuffing. The choice of cakes and cheese for desert rounded off a fabulous evening meal. Great food, nice atmosphere and very good value. Highly recommended.More

We had Sunday lunch here today. It is the first time in years that I have found rare beef at a carvery. 😋 Delicious. We also walked around the area first to build up an appetite.

This is the best carvery we have ever had. Having not eaten meat for a long time, I wanted to try it because it looked amazing but I wasn’t sure if I could actually eat it. Frankie patiently encouraged me to try the sirloin beef...joint, serving both well done and rarer slices of beef and a serving of pork to try. It’s was absolutely perfect and I thoroughly enjoyed it. So much so, that Frankie brought me some more sirloin beef to our table! Frankie has converted my vegetarian inclinations and meat is back on!! Thank you. Definitely recommend the service and quality of food here.More

We’ve enjoyed fabulous take-away fresh fish and chips twice now. Our food was waiting for us at our agreed collection time and the cleaning and distancing measures in place give confidence in these difficult times. Very pleased to support a local business and landmark that...we will need once this Coved nightmare is over.More

The best Sunday carvery we have ever had. The two joints had been cooked to perfection with both beef & pork being succulent, juicy & tasty with a very generous helping. The pork crackling was crunchy and very moreish. A good range of help yourself...vegetables were also well cooked and presented. We shared a starter of whitebait and finished with a devine pudding. The young waitresses did an admirable job of looking after us. To sum it up this meal was so good that we have booked again and taking four of our friends to show ut off.More

We first visited for the Sunday Carvery, we were so impressed we came back with some family for another carvery a few weeks later. Again much impressed with all of the food, the service and the ales we returned again with some friends for a...weekday lunch. The special chicken dish was superb, the cheese and potato pie excellent (what lovely pastry!) and the traditional puddings great. What a find, just a pity it is not a little more local to us.More
