We visited here one Sunday, late May and I have to say the food was superb! Perfectly cooked meat, a wide variety of vegetables and yummy Yorkshire puddings. We took our children who were 8 and 11 and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Can't wait...More

I had a reasonably priced steak sandwich, it was served with peppercorn sauce which I was not sure about on a roll but worked perfectly. I love creme brûlée & I have tried many, this was the best I have had in a long time.
