Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had to wait over...a hour for food, burgers and pasta , there was food on the floor around the table, and under the table , no cleaning had been done , the staff were standing around talking ,overall the staff were friendlyMore

The carvery was nice, however, the dessert took over an hour to arrive and was subpar. It wasn’t worth the long waiting time.

Highly recommended, reasonably priced carvery and one of the nicest cauliflower cheeses I’ve had. I would recommend the sausages on the carvery are abolished as they are not nice and dry, it’s better to just have plenty of pigs in blankets. Many thanks.

Called at this place just after 1pm on a Monday. I know carvery’s can be a bit hit & miss but thought as it had only been open an hour we’d be ok…wrong!!! You pay up front for a reason. Dried out meats that looked...like they were from the night before…I opted for roast beef but it was that hard no one in our family could chew through it. Stale veggies. I actually asked was there no fresh in the back to be told no. Had I not have been with family I’d have walked away. Cold hard peas, cold cauliflower, stuffing hard & the beans, mash & carrots dry beyond comprehension!!! It’s actually going to be remembered as the WORST carvery I’ve ever had - certainly not worth anyone’s hard earned money!More

We often come here for carvery but decided to try pizzas tonight instead. My husband ordered pepperoni feast with stuffed crust and I ordered philly cheese steak. After about 40 minutes I went to see where our pizzas were. I was told they'd just gone...in the oven. The bar staff said they had a lot if tickets on - it didn't look particularly busy to me but I suppose you never know. Our pizzas came out and we were very disappointed. Very little in way of sauce and cheese. The pepperoni feast had 11 small circles of pepperoni. The philly steak had some strands of beef on there but not much. No crispy onion bits. And the stuffed crust had little to no cheese in it. If we weren't hungry we would have sent it back or left. All in all, wish we'd stuck to carvery.More

It isn't meant to be a 5* experience. It is simple and reliable pub food at a very reasonable price. They do a great job with what they have
