The restaurant is smartly furnished and the staff are extremely pleasant and are also efficient. We have been twice recently for Sunday lunch and on both occassions were told (appropriately, while ordering) that they had run out of roast potatoes. Since these are a key point of a "Sunday roast" one has to ask why is this allowed to happen. The explanation "we have been very busy" really does not wash, especially as the menu actually invites one to request "extra" veg or roasties! If there is still meat, fish and veg available, desipe how "busy" it had been, why not roasties? Why not keep a bag or two of Aunt Bessies in the freezer and when they see their own roasties running out, pop a tray-full in the oven? Nobody would say that these are as good as home roasted potatoes, but for us they would have been better that nothing. In fairness I should make clear that we were ordering both times within an hour of the end of Sunday lunch, but still ....
The portions of meat and vegetables are generous, although the grilled salmon portion was verging on the mean side, and I have a small appetite. If you order the salmon, be sure to ask for the Hollandaise sauce separately, in a jug, otherwise your whole meal will be swimming in it as it is served (far too generously) in a large soup-dish shaped "plate" . The sauce itself is (to my mind) far too sweet and almost certainly a commercial product. It spoilt my first lunch there.
Sunday lunch is quite reasonably priced, and "deals" are available for lunch throughout the working week: 2 courses for £10.
Interestingly, on our first visit, a couple who orderd their meals after we had, were served first, possibly because they were friends of the landlady - as was evident by the fact that they joined her and her daughter's table - not a wise policy to favour some customers over others.
