Thanks for the review. Glad to read that you enjoyed some parts of the meal. Both our chicken tikka & lamb's liver are very popular but clearly did not suit this reviewer or indeed her 'ma'. ..

Excellent lunch here. All home cooked and freshly prepared. Reasonable prices. Old Inn. Close to Sherwood Forest.

Tucked away from the front it doesn't look much but inside it's a nice historical building. Sunday lunch was good and reasonably priced. Excellent service. Will be back.

Thanks for this underwhelming review. We served nearly 100 guests in under three hours on the evening in question. One wonders therefore how so many people fail to create any atmosphere...And yes, it would be true to say that the staff were very busy indeed...More
