1st visit here since new management took over a couple of years ago. Would recommend a visit, the food and staff were very good. Service was friendly and efficient and really suited a family with young children.

The best Sunday lunch I've had in a long time. Reasonable value and attentive service. Requested extra gravy and it wasn't a problem.
