My partner sister in law and I went there for lunch on Saturday. We could not fault the meal it was tops. The cost was very reasonable. The staff could not have been better. The salad bar and the hot area were very very good. A real credit to the owners Well done

Great customer service. I had roast lamb and it was great. It was a good size serving and so tender. It was reasonable priced too. Good selection at the salad bar. Would recommend and when i am down that area will definitely go there again.

The "Ambience" here is Excellent, very nice design dining area and sports bar. The staff are all very relaxed country style with that great laid back friendly attitude. Unfortunately the food was very disappointing being tasteless and very bland and unfortunately it was just frozen food. I had a seafood basket, the chips were powdery tasting not a quality cut...

This is a hotel with pretty standard menu and poker machines. Quite a good daily blackboard with more adventurous meals. Need to line up to order and that can be quite slow. Very quick service of your meals though once order is in. Value ok. Salad bar and veg bar included in main meals. Not enough selection of smaller meals... More

We went to the tavern on a busy Saturday night fortunately we had a booking. We ordered our meals of which my husband and I wanted mash instead of chips to which we were informed it was too busy. The salads were nice and had a great variety but the meal was a bit on the ordinary side. My husband... More

7 family members enjoyed their meals in what was a rather nice atmosphere. Salad bar was quite well stocked, fresh and had quite good variety. Meals were good value. It wasn't spectacular by any means, but all meals were quickly prepared and served within 15 minutes and well presented. A good meal and we will return again
