My son chose this venue for Fathers day and with my wife we went to lunch on Sunday 16th June 2013.
We chose from the menu as a starter the pate and my son chose the Prawn Cocktail both of which were very good. For main my son chose the Turkey and Beef roast dinner, my wife chose the Beef and I chose the lamb shank.
They were served with lots of fresh vegetables and were piping hot. Everyone agreed that they were excellent. The only down side was that there was quite a delay in serving the dishes some 25 minutes for our starter and then a further 30 minutes for our main course, even though we had booked the table for a particular time. They were very busy and as such could be forgiven for this due to the excellent serving of food. My rating for this would have been excellent or exceptional had it not been for the wait. Other than that service was good as were the drinks we had.
