This pub is tens of metres from us. The meat was outstanding in choice and well cooked. Vegetables were a bit crunchy and unpeeled however it's hard to fault the whole carvery package at such a good price too.

Friendly staff, good service at bar and in restaurant. You can choose to eat in the bar, outside or in the conservatory all from the same, quite extensive menu. We have been here quite a lot, it has changed hands fairly recently. We had the burgers (as usual!), they are excellent quality and nicely presented with a bit of fresh salad and some super chips. The blue cheese and balsamic vinegar dressing on mine was delicious.

Our family had a lovely carvery meal this afternoon/evening, loads of choice and really yummy beef, gammon & pork and not pricey. Absolutely content now (a little stuffed I have to say! Eyes bigger than our bellies!). Recommend the Toffee Sundae too. Staff gave us a warm welcome with good friendly service. Will visit again soon! Recommend!!!

The food was average and the service was poor. The prices were....well the restaurant was empty so somebody knew what we did not but the Kick Backs music group were amazing.

Went for a birthday meal on a Wednesday for a carvery. Very reasonably priced but a bit disappointing, starters and desserts were ok but the vegetables (not many to chose from!) from the carvery were all looking pretty tired and there weren't many left so everyone in our party just went for the choice of meats, potatoes and yorkshires. Overall thought it was pretty average.
