After a meal here 4 years ago we vowed never to come back, however having heard there were new owners and after reading the recent trip advisor reviews we decided to visit for a sunday evening carvery, We arrived and were greeted in a friendly and polite manner by the bar lady, my glass was dirty but they apologised and gave me a new one immediately, we sat outside to have our drinks, there were several well behaved children playing whist their families finished their meals. We were called in for our carvery, there were 2 choices of meat, 6 vegetables, new and roast potatoes and yorkshire puddings, plus plenty of hot gravy and sauces to go with the meat, The food tasted as good as it looked, the beef was very tender and tasty, and I particularly liked the lovely peppery mashed turnip and the cauliflower cheese! Yorkshire pud wasn't to hubbys taste but as his mother is from yorkshire and made the best yorkies in the world we will say no more! we thoroughly enjoyed our meal (which we didn't have to pay for before we ate Mark RR!) and left feeling extremely full and satisfied and in the knowledge that we will return again for a decent meal and a warm welcome.
This place was really run down before new owners took it over, they must have spent a huge amount of money cleaning and redecorating to make it a clean and inviting place to visit, but they are getting there! I am sure it will become popular again, us locals need to give it another chance. A little bit of constructive feedback for the owners; the fabric mats on the bar could do with replacing as they were a bit old and not very clean.
We will be back to have another carvery and try some of the other meals too, thanks for a lovely evening!
