A change of layout since our last visit has given additional cosy restaurant seating. The menu and 'specials board' give a great choice of dining. Both meals we enjoyed were good quality and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Visited today as a family of 5. Excellent carvery, amazing beef and a huge selection of vegetables. Puddings were to die for. Great value. Staff were very friendly. Would highly recommend. May have been our first visit but will not be our last. Thank you.

Thank you Karen, it was a pleasure to have you stay as our guest and thanks for taking the time to write. The rooms are individually controlled for heat by the radiators, perhaps it was a close night ! We hope to see you again...More
