“value for money”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Drove passed this tavern and noticed lots of cars parked so decided to give it a try. Yes it was busy but we soon ordered our carvery which had a choice of pork, turkey and beef plus half chicken.The cook puts the meat on the plates then you can place all the veg that you want plus stuffing balls roast potatoes and mash, and the gravy. You can go back for second helpings but not for extra meat. Included in the meal deal is unlimited soft Cornish ice cream which again you help yourself to and is unlimited. Very good value for money and had change out of ten pounds!

“Worst carvery ever have tasted”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Thought we would have a change of scenery from our usual Toby Carvery West wood Cross, HUGE mistake , dried up meat, frozen veg, hard roast pots stuffing so dry you could not get the serving spoon into it . the little bit of dried up pork was so hacked into it looked liked it had already been chewed up, it was dry and stringy yuk ! . Plus yu have to ring a buzzer for someone to serv e you , I wish I hadnt bothered , but as I had my 91 year old Aunt with me I did not want to cause a fuss,
I had a feeling when i went to pay for the food ( which by the way you have to do before you can receive your food ) as the assistants / bar maids white t shirt was a dirty grey colour not a good advertisement for a food establishment as if staff are not well turned out nor will the food be either. I am not a fussy eater but do like properly cooked food . I did complain and got offered a free pudding but we declined this offer, thankfully we shall not be going back to that establishment again.
