Went here with friends for the first time (after finding it in Tripadvisor) this Thursday the 10th. The pub is in the country with a large car park and a garden with tables.It is not far from South Mimms services so if you are travelling round the M25 and have to stop to get petrol, I recommend that you don't eat at the services but drive a couple of miles up the road to this pub. We got there at 12.30 and only 4 other people were there. I don't normally like a big lunch and nor do the others but once I saw the carvery with turkey, gammon and beef with all the trimmings at only 11.50, I couldn't resist trying it. We didn't have starters. My wife had an egg mayo baguette which she said was very tasty and as it was too big for her, they packed it up for her to take home. one had the Spanish omelette and crispy chips and another had the baked potato filled with tuna. All very tasty. The chef came out of the kitchen to carve the meats and I did ask him to take off the outside layer as it looked a bit dry from the heat lamps. He had no problem at all taking this layer off and the beef and gammon were both succulent and tender. I had roast potatoes which were OK but they had been under the lamps a little too long, but once I put the gravy on them they were fine. There was also a selection of veg.
I was definitely not going to have a desert after such a large main course, but they had my favorite which is spotted dick with custard. We decided that it would not be too naughty if we ordered one portion with 3 spoons. I am glad we did as it was excellent. They also have other favorite naughty and fattening puddings like syrup sponge etc. My wife ordered the child's portion of ice cream which came with 2 large scoops for which she was only charged £1.50 very reasonable for a restaurant. Including drinks all round and the tip, the whole lot only came to £40. They have long tables in the dining area so I would think that they often have parties.
I will definitely be returning.
