Booked a Saturday night for a birthday celebration for our party of 7. We understood the menu had changed so we decided to give it a go and we weren't disappointed. As well as a excellent menu there were some very tempting dishes of the day. We all had three courses and all of us thought the food was excellent.... More

lovely Sunday lunch in attractive setting, friendly staff and very good food. I especially liked that you get a few roast potatoes with the option to have more if required, rather than a huge pile that get wasted

Lovely roast dinner. The beef was just as I like it and very tasty. Veg nicely done but had to ask for more roasties as we do like our roast potatoes. Steaming hot syrup pudding and custard for pudding. All washed down with a pint of Spindrift. Perfect Sunday lunch.

The last time I visited I wasn't to impressed cold and dried food and poor customer no one came to the table to check how the food was only after we'd finished did we get asked. Been put off the place now so won't return. Repetitive menu is also a major of put
