Came here with my family for lunch. Amazing choice for a lunch menu and such a good idea being able to choose between small and large portions. Friendly, chatty staff and amazing value. Will definitely be back again!

I can't recommend the Sunday carvery enough. Fantastic value. Staff could not have been more helpful - seating us in a booth to lessen noise for my hard-hearing friend and helping to plate and carry the carvery meals. A lovely way to spend a Sunday.

My colleague and I thoroughly enjoyed our Indian Spice Lamb steak, the flavours were delicious! Wine, cheese, ice cream and a substantial pot of tea, friendly service, kept us happily chatting for about 3 hours! Most definitely an establishment to recommend and to return to.
