This was the first time we had visited the restaurant, staff very friendly very good service and the roast dinner was very good and plenty of choice. Highly recommend if you can't be bothered to cook on a Sunday perfect place

Sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy your food! Did you speak to your waitresses/ waiters at the time you tried your parsnips and explain they weren’t soft enough for you? If so we would usually offer an alternative or put out a fresh tray...More

This establishment should be good but it isn't. It is trying to be nouvelle cuisine but the flavours don't live up to the miniscule portions on the plate. The offerings are under seasoned and bland. If you are hungry don't eat here as there is...More

Go here every few months for a break from cooking. Never disappoints. You can go up for more and no pressure to rush. Even happier now they offer gluten free options so I don’t miss out on my Yorkshire puds!

Nice place with decent number of tables and a bar. Meal is all you can eat based on carvery layout. Recommended.

I would advise to book when possible as it does get busy but always worth a call if you haven't.
